Afterschool Adventures at P.S.9

 Afterschool begins at PS9 on the 1st day of school and ends on June 27, 2022   |    Hours: 2:30-6pm Monday-Friday 


It takes a village, so we built one. Our school aged programs teach children how to explore the world - the one around them and the world at large. We partner with parents to develop healthy, well-rounded children who become excited about serving their community and learning about the world. 


Traveling is one of the best ways to learn. With Afterschool Adventures we travel the world through hands-on experiences and a one of a kind enrichment curriculum. As part of this experience, our explorers relate back to their own culture and heritage to discover what makes them a unique global citizen. At the end of the year, explorers will have visited the great wonders of the world, tasted food from around the globe, played games from other countries, and learned to view themselves as an integral part of the continued growth of our global community. Our aim is to instill the love of exploration, adventure, and learning. Did we mention we provide homework help?

Afterschool Adventures is in session only on the days when your child’s school is in session. If you’d like childcare when your child’s school is closed, please visit our School Break Camp page
