The Pinecroft Plus Program is offered each day from 3:00 pm-5:30 pm. Students spend the afternoon in a relaxed, fun atmosphere with outdoor play (weather permitting) and time to spend on homework. Snack time focuses on healthy foods.
Each month features theme days designed around special activities or workshops, including Electronics Day, food tasting and others. Children may choose to participate in these planned activities, or they may opt to select from one of our many games and crafts.
Run as a “drop in” type of after-school care, Pinecroft Plus welcomes the occasional participant or daily attendee. We require no minimum attendance.
