After School

The Children’s Afterschool Center began in September, 1983. Our goal was to provide a safe and caring atmosphere for children while their parents were at work. The Children’s Afterschool Center is an owner-operated program that hasn’t grown too big and hasn’t forgotten that all children still need a safe and caring atmosphere. We always engage children in multiple and diverse activities.

We offer after school care for Kinnelon, Pequannock, and Butler school-aged children. We are a state-licensed care program that has cared for school aged children for 29 years.

  • Transportation provided to and from school in NJ State-inspected school vehicles
  • Homework Hour
  • Healthy snacks provided
  • Extended hours until 6:15pm

Kinnelon Site: Kinnelon and Butler Elementary Schools

Our Kinnelon site hosts both a before and after school program. This location is at St. David’s Church, 91 Kinnelon Road, Kinnelon, NJ.

In the afternoon hours, we follow a calendar which offers many hours of age-appropriate curriculum to engage your child’s interests. We maintain a recreational atmosphere which is safe, vibrant, and playful. Children are a given a choice of a healthy snack each day and are encouraged to start homework, then join in the afternoon activity. Parents may pick up their children by 6:15pm. We incorporate nature, dance, sports, free time, games, drama, art, music, community involvement, and other interesting and fun activities. In the event of inclement weather and schools close early, we are open for you so that you may continue to work without interruption. We close at 4:00pm on such days. If school is closed all day due to poor weather conditions, we are also closed. Please have alternative child care pre-arranged.
