Registration opens on January 15th to current After School families only. Open enrollment for the public (non-after school families) begins on January 29th. These families can also pre-register beginning on January 15th, but will be considered “wait listed” until open enrollment begins on January 29th. At that time, all “wait listed” registrations on file will be processed in the order they were received prior to the official start of open enrollment on January 29th @ 12pm.
When registering, you will be signing up your child for the classroom that they have just completed in the 2021-2022 school year. For example, if your son will be completing kindergarten in 2022, please select the Kindergarten (K Room) classroom. If your daughter will be completing 4th grade, sign up for the 3rd-5th grade classroom.
Curriculum & Instruction
Our curriculum promotes creativity, learning and physical well-being through a variety of morning enrichment classes, teacher-led projects, in house performances, field trips and more! Our enrichment instructors are professionals and specialists in their field. Our staff consists of experienced and well qualified teachers who have diverse backgrounds in the arts, athletics, education, history, music, and theatre. The genuine commitment and dedication of our staff is reflected in the low staff turn over. Our current staff has an average of 7 years of experience.
Each child begins easing into their day with indoor/outdoor free play with their peers.
Our morning enrichment class changes weekly, but we offer one enrichment each week such as karate, hip hop dance, Zumba, Top Secret Science, art, drumming, music and movement & more! Each enrichment takes place either in their classroom or outdoors.
After our fun-filled morning, we break for lunch. Lunch is not provided by Kids’ Corner, but families have the option to pre order lunch daily through our partnerships with D’Agostino’s Deli and Gloria’s Pizza. Details will be provided the week before your child attends as to not get lost in the shuffle.
In our afternoons, we head outside for water play and/or hop on the bus for a local excursion to the splash park, swimming, or tennis!
Later in the afternoon, we have snack time (snack is provided by Kids’ Corner). We then transition into an evening of Kids’ Corner’s beloved Project Sign-Up (teacher-led activities in art, baking, sports and more!) and we end our days at Kids’ Corner by enjoying some indoor/outdoor freeplay.
Please note the enrichment and field trip change weekly!

What COVID protocols to expect during our Summer Program 2022:
Last summer proved to be a successful venture into pandemic life. We will continue many of our protocols from Summer 2021 and the 2021-2022 School Year. Here is our plan as of January 2022:
We will limit our classrooms and split the groups when indoors.
Are all trained in COVID prevention and a majority have worked in many of the programs we have offered since the pandemic began.
All students and staff wear face masks when indoors. While outside during water play, lunch, enrichments, etc. face masks are not required.
All staff and students are asked to provide a copy of their vaccination card. This helps us to evaluate the program needs on a weekly basis.
We continue to practice social distancing when applicable indoors and spend most of our day outside. When we are unable to maintain the necessary distance, teachers note where each child sits for tracing purposes.
Staff uphold all of the guidelines from the CDC and EEC. We keep the windows open in the classrooms as much as possible and there is also nightly sanitization of every classroom and the common areas.
Several times a week, we hop on a bus to go on a field trip or local excursion. Children are strategically spaced out on the buses, windows are opened, and the bus is sanitized before boarding. We will also continue visiting places that are outside (beaches, harbor islands, local ponds, spray parks, etc).
