MENUMENU
AFTERCARE & ENRICHMENT
AfterSchool at Westminster is a fun place of learning and play. Aftercare provides students an opportunity to eat a provided snack, play outdoors, complete homework, and engage friends in a relaxed and caring environment.

Enrichments offer students the chance to dive deep into the fine arts (guitar, handbells, ballet, and dance), athletics (gymnastics, Zumba, tennis skills, and yoga), chess and STEM.

You can reach the Aftercare Director at aftercare@wamemphis.com.

ABOUT AFTERCARE


When is Aftercare?

Aftercare runs from 3:15 p.m.- 5:45 p.m in the CLC school days days from August 14, 2018-May 17, 2019. Aftercare is not available on school holidays (including when the whole school releases for half-days).

How do I enroll my student?
All JK-8th grade Westminster Academy students are already enrolled in our program! All you need to do is let us know that you’re planning to come.
When you let us know that your child is attending, we are better prepared to serve you and your family.
How do I pay for Aftercare?
There are two options to pay for Aftercare:

  1. Full-time, full-year:
    $2,500. This reflects a 20% discount. This may be paid in full at the beginning of the year or payments may be spread out monthly.
  2. Pay as you go:
    $6.00/hour. Your FACTS account will be billed on the 25th of the month, due the 5th of the following.

Students who are picked up after closing will be assessed a late fee of $2.00 per minute, per student.
