Enrichment programs are offered in two separate sessions each year (Fall & Winter/Spring) and run for eight to ten weeks. If necessary, and conducive to instructor schedule, one make up session may be offered to offset an instructor or snow day cancellation. Programs do not meet on half or full In-Service Days, vacations, or when school is otherwise not in session. Please make all efforts to arrange pickup so your child is present for the entirety of each class. Children must be signed-out with an after-school staff member; enrichment instructors do not have sign-out sheets. Please call 665-6674 or send a note if your child will not be attending a day of programming. Programs are first come first serve.
Cost of Program
Program rates are calculated to cover instructor fees, supplies, snack, and additional after-school staff necessary due to increased participant numbers before and after enrichments. Fees are listed on the attached registration form. A check for the workshop fee, made payable to the “Town of Whately” is due with registration. Whately After-School Program participants may participate in workshops offered on their regularly scheduled days for lesser fee, applied to enrichment expenses. You will be contacted only if a desired workshop is full and placed on a wait list, or if low enrollment has resulted in a program cancellation.
