Fees (All programs)
A registration fee of $50 is due for each child’s application, “each” school year. Registration for all programs is subject to availability.
The After School at Spence's Farm is centered around the main farmhouse and our participants have use of the extensive facilities and grounds located at the farm. Each day after arrival, the children settle in and eat the nutritious snack you have provided. We help them with their homework and give them an opportunity to play outside (weather permitting). At 4pm the children start focused activities which include gathering eggs, working in the garden, feeding the small animals, hiking, creative expression, cooking, and more.
Fees are outlined in detail in the Parent Handbook. Please review that information carefully.
