There is a separate curriculum for grades K-2 and 3-5. Our activities reinforce and enrich concepts and skills your children learn in school, through simple tasks as well as more complex, challenging interdisciplinary projects. We also provide time during the program for your child(ren) to work on their school homework assignments, as well as time for play and gross motor development. At our program, your child(ren) can learn about topics and interests they may not necessarily have time to explore during school hours. Our staff members maintain a dedicated, positive attitude toward learning, and develop meaningful relationships with each individual child. The staff also promotes three critical concepts in our program: safety, positive youth development, and academic enrichment and support. WPC is a collaboration with Westford Public Schools. WPC is located at your child’s school to ensure an easy and safe transition from the classroom to the program. This allows WPC to have excellent communication between the WPC team and school staff, supporting your child's academic, social, and emotional development. Our program provides safe, structured programs with a range of supervised activities intentionally designed to encourage learning and development, outside of the school day.

We offer homework help, science exploration, math enrichment, reading and storytelling, language, music and theater, visual arts, sports and games, civic engagement and involvement, as well as other activities to support and promote healthy social and emotional development. There is a separate curriculum for grades K-2 and 3-5. Our activities reinforce and enrich concepts and skills your children learn in school, through simple tasks as well as more complex, challenging interdisciplinary projects. We also provide time during the program for your child(ren) to work on their school homework assignments, as well as time for play and gross motor development.At our program, your child(ren) can learn about topics and interests they may not necessarily have time to explore during school hours. Our staff members maintain a dedicated, positive attitude toward learning, and develop meaningful relationships with each individual child. The staff also promotes three critical concepts in our program: safety, positive youth development, and academic enrichment and support.WPC is a collaboration with Westford Public Schools. WPC is located at your child’s school to ensure an easy and safe transition from the classroom to the program. This allows WPC to have excellent communication between the WPC team and school staff, supporting your child's academic, social, and emotional development. Our program provides safe, structured programs with a range of supervised activities intentionally designed to encourage learning and development, outside of the school day. There are many opportunities for creativity and choice within these structured activities, and we strongly encourage socialization with peers and staff.Visit About WPC to learn more about all of the Parks & Recreation WPC programs.Important Information:Please submit the following forms to Parks & Recreation: REGISTRATION FORM, CHILD INFO FORM, and CHARGE CARD AUTHORIZATION FORM.

The staff also promotes three critical concepts in our program: safety, positive youth development, and academic enrichment and support. WPC is a collaboration with Westford Public Schools.

This allows WPC to have excellent communication between the WPC team and school staff, supporting your child's academic, social, and emotional development.

We also provide time during the program for your child(ren) to work on their school homework assignments, as well as time for play and gross motor development. At our program, your child(ren) can learn about topics and interests they may not necessarily have time to explore during school hours. Our staff members maintain a dedicated, positive attitude toward learning, and develop meaningful relationships with each individual child. The staff also promotes three critical concepts in our program: safety, positive youth development, and academic enrichment and support. WPC is a collaboration with Westford Public Schools. WPC is located at your child’s school to ensure an easy and safe transition from the classroom to the program. This allows WPC to have excellent communication between the WPC team and school staff, supporting your child's academic, social, and emotional development.

We offer homework help, science exploration, math enrichment, reading and storytelling, language, music and theater, visual arts, sports and games, civic engagement and involvement, as well as other activities to support and promote healthy social and emotional development. There is a separate curriculum for grades K-2 and 3-5. Our activities reinforce and enrich concepts and skills your children learn in school, through simple tasks as well as more complex, challenging interdisciplinary projects. We also provide time during the program for your child(ren) to work on their school homework assignments, as well as time for play and gross motor development.At our program, your child(ren) can learn about topics and interests they may not necessarily have time to explore during school hours. Our staff members maintain a dedicated, positive attitude toward learning, and develop meaningful relationships with each individual child. The staff also promotes three critical concepts in our program: safety, positive youth development, and academic enrichment and support.WPC is a collaboration with Westford Public Schools. WPC is located at your child’s school to ensure an easy and safe transition from the classroom to the program. This allows WPC to have excellent communication between the WPC team and school staff, supporting your child's academic, social, and emotional development. Our program provides safe, structured programs with a range of supervised activities intentionally designed to encourage learning and development, outside of the school day. There are many opportunities for creativity and choice within these structured activities, and we strongly encourage socialization with peers and staff.Visit About WPC to learn more about all of the Parks & Recreation WPC programs.Important Information:Please submit the following forms to Parks & Recreation: REGISTRATION FORM, CHILD INFO FORM, and CHARGE CARD AUTHORIZATION FORM.

This allows WPC to have excellent communication between the WPC team and school staff, supporting your child's academic, social, and emotional development.
