After School Program

The Brookline Recreation After School Program (ASP) is an EEC licensed program for children enrolled in the Public Schools of Brookline. This program offers a safe, supportive alternative between school and home for children. Activities include outdoor play, seasonal activities such as ice skating, open gym activities, cooking, arts and crafts, homework, community service, and field trips. 

Our program offers the opportunity for children in grades K - 4 to learn and grow in a structured environment but at their own pace. Taught by EEC certified teachers, children will be guided through enriching and educational programming to expand on their social, emotional, and intellectual well being.

Enrollment and Tuition
The After School Program takes up to 40 children per day of the week. You may register for a minimum of 2 days or up to five days, whichever is available. After 40 children are reached per day, a wait list will be held for registrations at no cost.

The cost for our program is $110 per day, per month. Example: If you register for Mondays, your tuition would be $110 a month. If you register for Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; your tuition would be $330 per month. 5 Days a week will cost $550 per month.

The Brookline Recreation Department works closely with the town transportation department in providing bus service from the public schools to the Eliot Recreation Center. Children will be boarded at their school by a teacher or staff member and met out front of the Eliot Center by one of our teachers.

Programming and School Schedule
The Brookline Recreation After School program follows the Public Schools of Brookline school calendar. If there is no school, the program will be closed. If schools have a half day, children who are enrolled for that specific date will come to us early and have an extended day with us.

The After School Program is closed during school vacation weeks, however the Recreation Department will offer additional programming as an alternative for a separate cost and separate registration. 

A separate calendar will be sent out to all parents and guardians listing our events for each day of the month. This will provide notice for field trips, special events, and any special notes that require advanced attention.
