Highland Community School offers children support, games, activities and a nurturing environment each morning before their school day begins. Adult to child ratios and group sizes are based on the youngest child in care. Discounted weekly rates apply when you sign your child up for the semester or the full school year. Breakfast is served at 7:45am in the gym.

Children’s House After School Program

In our K4 & K5 after school learning, environment children will continue to develop independence after their school day through meaningful and rich play. Our after school programs are modeled to complement the Montessori classroom, children choose materials, which we referred to as “work”, freely and without restriction in a mixed-age group setting. In addition to independent work time this program offers baking lessons, daily art projects, after-school-snack, community circle time and outdoor play on our natural grounds.

Elementary (Lower & Upper) After School Program

Students participating in elementary after school programs look forward to spending time with their peers in a classroom setting with age appropriate games and activities. Our program staff provides a fun and engaging experience with opportunities to participate in weekly clubs like Art Club, Eco Club, Chess club, Robotics, Digital Studio, Theatre and more. Children have access to our natural grounds during outdoor time and computers are made available for research and math homework.

At Highland we understand that families have unique schedules so we have developed a series of after school options. See the chart below to select an option that best suits your family.
