During the School Year

The school offers an Enrichment program on Monday mornings from 9:15-11:45 and an Afternoon Adventures program on Monday through Friday from 12:00-3:00 PM. Children will be engaged in science, math, language arts, dramatic play, and outdoor activities.  Curriculum will be theme based where children will develop social, emotional, cognitive, fine, and gross motor skills.  Children attending Afternoon Adventures will bring their own lunch and drink. Morning Enrichment attendees should bring snack, lunch (if attending an afternoon class), and drink. A rest period after lunch is provided.

Enrichment/Afternoon Adventures is open to all Coop children and Morning Kindergartners in the local school systems. Siblings and friends who are 3 years old may attend if space is available. Every child who attends must have emergency contact information as well as a health form, signed by a doctor, on file at the school.

In order for a child to attend Enrichment/Afternoon Adventures, parents must sign the sheet located on the bulletin board by the playground door. Sign-up sheets are posted at the end of Friday’s class, two weeks in advance. Parents can also call school in the morning to see if space is available.

  2. Sign-up begins August 1 and continues until the end of the second week of school. If too many Acton Coop children are signed up for permanent slots on a specific day of the week, then the Director will hold a lottery. Families who do not receive a slot for their requested day will be given a chance to register for another day.
  3. If, after Acton Coop children have had a chance to request permanent spots, there is additional space available, these spots will be made available to others in the following order:  siblings of currently enrolled children, interim members, and families in the community whose children are not currently enrolled at the Coop.

Summer and Vacation Enrichment/Afternoon Adventures

The holiday Enrichment/Afternoon Adventures will run during the few days that the Coop is closed before the Acton public school closes for winter break. The summer Enrichment/Afternoon Adventures program will begin after the end of the school year and will run for approximately 1-2 weeks until the Acton public school closes. Both programs will run from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The program will be open to children who are age 2.9 or older.
