Beforecare and Aftercare

Morning and afternoon programs both afford a relaxed atmosphere with free-choice and planned activities. In the afternoon, we provide a nutritious snack and time to play outdoors, after which students in Grades 1-5 may choose to begin their homework in a quiet, supervised setting.

ACE Programs

What are ACE Programs? ACE (After Class Enrichment) Programs give Grace students the opportunity to explore new and exciting activities after school. With different offerings each term, our students can experience a range of classes from dance to soccer to cooking! Classes are led by members of Grace’s own staff as well as a number of qualified instructors from the DC Metro Area. Come join the fun!

Who can sign up? All Grace students can sign up for ACE programs! Classes are open to contracted aftercare students and also to students who do not attend aftercare. Students can sign up for more than one class! Please be mindful that some classes may indicate a specific age range. Grace will provide a healthy snack in conjunction with aftercare. The students will be dismissed from aftercare to their ACE course. After ACE classes students will return to aftercare or be dismissed to parents.

How do I register? All students may sign up for ACE Programs by filling in the attached sheet and returning it to Shalonda Newman, Aftercare Director, by Friday, September 14th. Sign up now before classes fill up!
