Norwood offers two after-school options: After Care and Enrichment. Both options provide a neighborhood environment where students can feel safe, make connections, and have a whole lot of fun learning through play. Building on Norwood's strong sense of community, we focus not only on fun, but also on the values that make our neighborhood a great place to be. As our students interact with friends - enjoying the wide variety of materials available or participating in different games and activities - our teachers are there to guide them through teachable moments that foster social-emotional growth and an atmosphere of caring and joy that make our After School Programs a happy place of playing!

The After Care Program is focused on allowing students to grow through the all-important relationships they form along with student-centered activities available during the afternoon.  As a "home away from home," the After Care environment provides students with opportunities to form new friendships, strengthen old bonds, take care of homework, and participate in a wide variety of activities created with the student's interests in mind.

Enrichment Program

GRADES K-6  
Specialty courses offered throughout the year
Days and times vary

The Enrichment Program consists of after-school courses that foster a joyful and enriching learning experience for each child. With courses ranging from the arts to the sciences, from technology to cooking, from sports to magic, and everything in between, the program aims to plant the seeds of curiosity, discovery, and a life-long love of learning in children as they explore some of their favorite hobbies and interests, as well as discover new and fascinating ones! A new course schedule is offered in the fall, winter, and spring. Norwood families learn about available courses and the registration process in the Thursday Memo.
