Common Ground’s school age program provides a balance of educational, enrichment and recreational activities in a safe, positive, comfortable and family like environment. Independent and organized activities include homework support, arts & crafts, games, sports and free play.
We provide before-school, after-school care, and drop-in care for children attending elementary school. We offer many options (e.g. full week before/after school care, before school only, before/after school 3-days per week, etc.), as well as programs during winter break, spring break and FCPS closure days (e.g. student holidays and unscheduled closures), to fit each family’s needs and schedules; please contact us for details.
