Learning doesn’t stop at the end of the school day. Nor does the fun. Lesley Ellis offers a number of optional afterschool, vacation, and summer programs with plenty of activities that allow kids to pursue a favorite interest or discover new ones. In a comfortable and relaxed setting, children socialize in mixed aged groups, learn something new, and most importantly, have a great time. Whether planting a garden, paddling a kayak, or learning to code, there is something for everyone. The LES teachers—along with area college students and various professionals—bring their classroom teaching expertise to new venues—making sure there is just the right balance of education and recreation and a distinct shift from the school day.
After SchoolThere’s lots to do at Lesley Ellis after the regular school day ends. The optional Afterschool Program gives children the space, time, and guidance to share projects, games and other activities in a welcoming environment at an unhurried pace. More than a childcare program, we provide the same intentional programming and individual attention that we do during the school day—helping to promote continued growth and the development of positive self-esteem.

A new session starts each week throughout the summer with adventures for incoming preschoolers through 8th grade, including overnight camping trips for our oldest students. Learn More
Vacation ProgramThe Lesley Ellis Vacation Program offers parents coverage on early release days, conference days, and many holidays and school vacations. More than a convenient option for working parents, the program is designed to enhance children's social skills and intellectual development, and to provide a fun alternative to the typical school day.
