  • Coding/Robotics

  • Athletics/Yoga
  • Chess
  • Cooking
  • Public Speaking

Activities are tailored to the specific needs and interests of each school with input from school leadership, staff, and students.

Students are assigned to groups of approximately 12-15, based on similar grade levels. Due to demand for the program, space is limited.

Our Learning & Discovery program operates each afternoon that school is in session from school dismissal until 6 pm. We follow all Virginia licensing requirements.

“Savannah loves the program so much including Ms. Amber and all of her teachers. I hear all about doing yoga, piano, art and playing with friends. Thank you all so much for creating an after-school program where our child is so happy!"
