After School Program

What are the hours of the After School Program?


The After School Program operates from 2:30 – 6:00 p.m. on every school day per School Calendar for RSU #34.




How do I enroll my child in the After School Program?


To enroll your child in the Dreams by Janice After School Program, you must stop by the Art Studio and pick up a Student Registration form, complete the form, and return it to Dreams by Janice. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all slots are full. We can also put you on a waiting list if the After School Program is already full.




Does the After School Program offer a daily rate or only a monthly rate?


The After School Program does not offer a daily rate at this time. Due to the nature of our program and in order to ensure as many students as possible get to participate, we are unable to offer particiation on a day-to-day basis. The monthly rate is very competitive; so even if your child participates at part-time status, the monthly rate is a great value.




Will my child get to participate in all of the Dreams by Janice programs?


Yes! Your child will get to participate in all of the Dreams by Janice program areas, which include painting, cooking, arts and crafts, sewing, knitting, and crocheting. We want to ensure that your child has an opportunity to learn about as many art forms as possible.




Is the monthly rate pro-rated when school is not in session during the academic year?


Due to our competitive prices, the monthly rate for the After School Program is fixed regardless of how many days school is in session. So although the program operates only every day school is in session, the monthly rate remains unchanged even if there are holidays or snow days or vacation days.

A specialty class may require advanced skills, an upfront commitment to participate in a series of classes. and/or may be limited to certain age groups. Specialty classes may result in additional costs because specific materials or equipment are needed to complete the project.

Unless the class description specifically indicates otherwise, all classes are drop-in classes.
