Child Development

Kids Unlimited After-School Program

As a part of the Tom Hargrove and Anita Grover, MD Child Development Center, our Y offers reliable after-school programming for children in kindergarten through grade six from school dismissal to 6:00pm daily. Participants may register for 3, 4, or 5 days per week. The program is held at our Y and follows the New Canaan public school calendar. Bus transportation from the New Canaan public and St. Aloysius schools is provided. Extended days are available when New Canaan schools have early dismissals, and vacation programs are available at reduced rates during most public school holidays. Our energetic, qualified staff provide experiences that promote self-esteem, independence, and responsibility. Activities include organized gym activities and outdoor play, sports and games, swimming, arts and crafts, stories, music, special events, local trips, and homework assistance. We maintain a staff-to-child ratio of at least 1 to 10. For more information or to schedule a visit, contact Suzy Pfeifer at 203-920-1649.
