After School Program and Wheeler Summer
Wheeler’s After School Program provides Wheeler and Hamilton Lower School students with a meaningful and dynamic extension of their school day in a safe, comfortable, and familiar environment. The program philosophy is one that is both structured and play-based, able to meet the needs of anyone in our community. This socially, intellectually-stimulating, and well-supervised experience supports learning opportunities, new friendships, and social development in a vibrant and lively environment.
Options for Families
There are two options that families can choose from: Traditional After School Care, otherwise known as WOW, and Enrichment Programs. Each option has daily offerings, flexibility, and its own fee structure. Both options begin at the end of your child’s school day and conclude around 4:30pm. For families who need to extend their student’s day to 5:30pm, we offer the Extended Care Option. A daily snack is provided upon arrival to all students.
Our fall, winter, and spring trimesters align with the Wheeler and Hamilton Lower School academic calendar so that we offer an after school option every day school is in session.
Additional care is also offered on some days when school is not in session, such as Conference Care Days, Faculty Professional Development Days, and Vacation Camps!
