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.

About our After School ProgramWestford Partnership for Children (WPC) After School Enrichment Program was created in 2004 to provide a safe, constructive, stimulating, and fun environment for Westford elementary and middle school children during the high-risk after school hours. 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.

About our After School ProgramWestford Partnership for Children (WPC) After School Enrichment Program was created in 2004 to provide a safe, constructive, stimulating, and fun environment for Westford elementary and middle school children during the high-risk after school hours. 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.

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.

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.

About our After School ProgramWestford Partnership for Children (WPC) After School Enrichment Program was created in 2004 to provide a safe, constructive, stimulating, and fun environment for Westford elementary and middle school children during the high-risk after school hours. 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.

About our After School ProgramWestford Partnership for Children (WPC) After School Enrichment Program was created in 2004 to provide a safe, constructive, stimulating, and fun environment for Westford elementary and middle school children during the high-risk after school hours. 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.

Online registration for the WPC REC Club After School Enrichment Program for middle school students is now available at:CommunityRootParticipants can register for and begin the program at any point during the school year, but registrations must be received by 4 p.m., one week prior to their start date, or you will incur a $25 late fee.

Online registration for the WPC REC Club After School Enrichment Program for middle school students is now available at:CommunityRootParticipants can register for and begin the program at any point during the school year, but registrations must be received by 4 p.m., one week prior to their start date, or you will incur a $25 late fee. If your child(ren) attend(s) the program without being registered for the current session, you will incur a $15 fee per day (in addition to daily block fees) attended until registered, in addition to the $25 late fee.PROGRAM INFORMATIONThe program runs at the Stony Brook Middle School (our central location is the library and this is where students should report for sign-in) Monday through Friday, from school dismissal until 5:45 p.m. Blanchard students are bussed to Stony upon dismissal for no additional fee.Just like our K-5 programs, each day is broken down into three blocks (Block 1: 1:55-3:10, Block 2: 3:10-4:30, Block 3: 4:30-5:45 p.m.). The fee per block is $12 (the fee for blocks added after initial registration are $13/block), or $36 per day for all three blocks.
