At The Connection, our AfterSchool Program integrates homework assistance with fun, organized activities. In addition, your child may take classes such as STEM, swim, karate, sports, dance, cooking, visual arts, and gymnastics, at a discounted rate. *Class offerings subject to change due to COVID-19 protocols. Outdoor play is also offered.

The Connection will continue to extend care from 12:30-6:00pm, with a 3:30pm pick-up option while Summit Schools have remote learning in the afternoon.

  • From 12:30-3:30pm: Students will bring their lunch and then complete the remote learning part of their school day. The Connection’s experienced staff will help children stay focused on learning and provide assistance as needed.
  • From 3:30-6:00pm: At the end of their school day, children receive assistance with their homework and participate in organized activities and free play with time spent outdoors whenever possible. Throughout the school year, children also engage in community service activities.

Our Connection After School Program provides a warm, secure, and enriching environment. The Connection provides high-quality, well-supervised after-school childcare for our students. We offer a balance of activities that provide a creative, educational, and recreational experience for children.

We provide transportation from Summit elementary schools and primary centers. Students not attending Summit schools are welcome to enroll and attend via their own transportation.

Unscheduled early dismissals: The Connection does not provide child care if the Summit Primary Centers and elementary schools are closed for any reason including snow days, unscheduled early dismissals, or cancellation of after-school activities.
