After School

Wakefield Elementary After School is hosted at the neighboring Kerr Family YMCA. At YMCA After School, kids expand their learning beyond the classroom. We use a balanced curriculum that supports learning through active play and a focus on character development and social emotional learning. We also offer a quiet space and support for students to work on their homework Monday through Thursday afternoons.

During the week, students will participate in a variety of enrichment activities with opportunities for skill development, physical activity and fun.

After School is held from school dismissal until 6 p.m.
