Melrose Education Stations provides balanced enrichment programming at the end of the school day in students’ own elementary schools. Professional staff members engage students in a creative, motivating and cooperative atmosphere to further inquiry and development. Three scheduling options are available each day, and students may attend one to five days on a weekly schedule. Students may also attend on a drop-in basis. Aside from after school programming, Education Stations also offers enrichment activities during other non-school times including professional development days, some vacation/holidays and summer break.
Enrichment programming makes use of many school facilities including the playground, library, art/music room, computer lab/cart, gym/multipurpose room and kitchen. Homework help, physical activity/games and a variety of daily activities are typically offered each day. All activities take place on school grounds, unless previous written permission has been granted for a field trip.
