The Metro North Children's Learning Center works to nurture, protect, inspire, and challenge children to reach their full potential through meaningful after school/extended learning enrichment activities.  The center works to provide this in a safe and structured environment and to improve its neighborhood by collaborating with the community and families.  
Activities are based on a set of core concepts: 
* Attention to children's individual needs and interests
* An educated understanding of child growth and development
* Broadening children's perspectives about the real world around them
* Promoting positive outcomes for children
* Provides a strong supportive staff that each have unique strengths.

All activities at the Children's Learning Center are linked to the MA curriculum frameworks and compliment the learning that happens in the public school classroom.  We believe that our ability to "re-teach" certain concepts, and offer early exposure to others is a crucial experience that sets our program apart from other "After School Programs".  The ability to have educated staff work with small groups of students is an essential part of how we support both children's academic success while enhancing each child's self confidence which is vital to their overall development.  

School Age Child Care Program 

The after school/ school age program here at the “CLC” provides a safe, healthy, supervised environment that allows parents/guardians to be stress free when the formal academic day is done. During the time children spend in our care we have highly educated staff that work in small groups with each child to get their homework done before they go home for the day.  We also offer 4-5 activities that are well thought out and planned by our staff daily.  During our “choice time” many of the activities build on academic skills that correspond to what the public schools are doing, but we do things in a “hands on way”; which helps most children develop their understanding and skills through additional exposure. 

Our after school program doesn't end with the school year, and we are also open during school vacations and “NO School Days” when the public school is closed. We provide both AM and PM snacks on full days. Being open year round allows for a strong community to be built among the children and staff.  We are open 7:30-6:00 all summer and on “No School Days”.  During those times our staff develop curriculum that keeps everyone engaged and fosters learning year round.  Each summer we plan great field trips that make real life connections to learning, and also have weekly summer field trips to local beaches, ponds, pools, or parks.
