Before & After Kindergarten Program


5 years to 6 years

Time: 7:30am – bus pick up time before school, and from bus drop off time after school – 5:30pm.

The year your child begins public kindergarten is often a very busy and exciting time for parents. Our nationally accredited Before and After Kindergarten Program allows your child to cultivate friends, be physically active, and participate in school readiness activities in a safe, enriching, and extended learning environment.

Our teachers blend their expert knowledge of child development with individual interests to stimulate and engage each child and instill a sense of independence, responsibility, and intellectual curiosity. Activities complement those shared during the school day, and are important contributions to your child’s cognitive and social/emotional success in school and in life.

Programming is available for children who attend public school during the day. Through partnership with the Portsmouth School Department, Portsmouth students are transported by bus to and from their school and our program at the Community Campus. Parents must provide transportation for students who do not attend Portsmouth schools.

Offering care on school days, many school closing days, vacation weeks and summer.
