Elementary After School

Provided by
Goodman Community Center

We've always offered a home-away-from-home for kids in our Afterschool program, but with our new facility there's a lot more to explore! 

Our programs and activities enhance how well kids do in school, boost their nutrition, help them get or stay fit, and give them skills and opportunities to make friends and have fun.  As a Community Learning Center (CLC), Goodman's after school program provides enrollees opportunities for academic support, including homework help, and hands-on enrichments with a focus on literacy, math, and science encouragement.  Our specialty teachers also encourage social-emotional development by providing gender specific programming including Girls Inc. and Boys Group weekly.

Sliding fee scale. Program is FREE for families who qualify for free lunch. Documentation of household income and completion scholarship paperwork is required.
Elementary after school programming is state licensed and accepts WI Shares to cover the cost of care. The program is also city accredited and accepts City tuition assistance to cover the cost of care. For families who do not qualify for either of these assistance programs, Goodman offers a scholarship program which awards partial and full program scholarships based on household income and size. Proof of income is required.
Program often has a waiting list, so families are asked to call our attendance line at (608) 279-2808 to inquire about space available. If a space is available, parents must complete an enrollment packet and scholarship packet, if interested.
Program is monitored by state licensing and meets ADA requirements.
Children are transported from Lowell and Emerson via a school bus. Children are transported from Lapham/Marquette via a van (seats on this van are extremely limited). Drop off services are available to families who do not have transportation to pick there child up from the center and live in the Darbo/Worthington neighborhoods and the Brentwood community.
