Discovery Center Afterschool Program

Discovery Kids Club Afterschool Program

Our Discovery Kids Club is for children from kindergarten through 5th grade who are interested in making friends, experiencing new things, and diving into the creative process through exploration and invention.

We place a strong emphasis on community building, leadership, and public service. Our educators will work with you to ensure your child’s afterschool adventure is a beneficial experience filled with making positive childhood memories.

Transportation

Binghamton City School District (BCSD) transports children (K-5th) to our program on days that school is in session. Parents must provide transportation for children outside the BCSD. We are open to children from all districts on school holidays.

Program Calendar

We follow the Binghamton City School District’s Calendar.

Half-Day (BCSD half-days): 11AM – 6PM
Full-Day (BCSD school holidays): 8AM – 5PM

These days are included in tuition. The fee for participants that are not full-time is $40/day.

Should schools open in an alternate format in the fall (half days or limited numbers of days in the classroom), The Discovery Center will modify our school age programming to ensure that our wrap-around services meet the needs of the children in our care.

Discovery Kids Club is THE place to be after 3PM!

Run by certified teaching staff and licensed by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services, our Discovery Kids Club provides engaging and fun learning experiences for your child all through the lens of play!

We provide a safe and exciting environment where children can explore, grow, and have fun!
