After School Care, Clubs, and Summer Camps
The ABS Afterschool Care Program
The Arts Based School is happy to offer an in-house after school care program. The ABS Afterschool Care Program will encourage physical, mental, social, and emotional growth through indoor activities and outdoor play. Students have access to numerous board games, art activities, and toys for imaginative play available for indoor activities. Students rotate through time on the playgrounds/courtyard, field, and designated computer lab days throughout the week.
Our After School Care program is offered Monday-Friday, from the end of the school day until 6pm. More detailed information on the ABS Afterschool Care Program is available in the Aftercare Parent Handbook.
Summer Camp at ABS
ABS Summer Camps aim to spark curiosity, nurture friendships, and enable playful exploration. Our summer programming is an extension of the ABS philosophy of joyful learning through the arts, and we are committed to providing a fun, enriched, and diverse experience.
