After School Program Details


CALENDAR AND CLASS CANCELLATIONS: We follow the New Milford public school calendar. However, sometimes elementary schools are open while Middle or High Schools are closed or on early dismissal so you must be aware of your school calendar. View the New Milford School calendar. There is normally no After School program on holidays and other days of no school but we may hold a class on such a date if all students can attend.

There will be no After School programs on days of early dismissal due to weather.

MAKEUP DATES:  A makeup date will be provided if a class is cancelled due to instructor or facility related availability. If possible, a makeup date will be scheduled for cancellations due to weather but this is not guaranteed.

REFUND POLICY: If a student’s registration is cancelled by the parents for some or all classes of a session, for any reason, no refund is promised.  However, a partial refund may be offered if another student is found for the vacant spot.

TUITION HELP: Limited funding is available for tuition help; please ask if it is needed.

WHERE WE ARE AND HOW TO GET THERE: Our after school program space is at The Hobby Hangout, 48 Anderson Ave in New Milford (find on map). For all New Milford schools except for Northville, parents can arrange for children to be dropped off by school bus at our location. Busing from Northville school is not available. Bus numbers and instructions to arrange drop-off are below. We personally collect Hill and Plain and SNIS students at the bus stop. Schaghticoke and high school students are dropped off at the corner of Grove and Anderson and will walk to the entrance of Hobby Hangout through the parking lot.

PICKUP TIME: Pickup time is approximately 2 hours after your child arrives. Arrangements can be made for a later parent pick-up time, at an additional charge of $10/hr. This must be prearranged except in unexpected situations. 6:00 pm is the latest pickup time except by prearrangement or unexpected situations. Please contact us at or 860-717-4319 with questions.
