The Arlington Boys & Girls Club offers a EEC licensed after school program for children enrolled in grades K-5. The ABGC After School Program is designed to enrich the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of school age children. This program is offered to children ages 4.9 years to 11 years. Participants must be enrolled in at least kindergarten. We are open from September-June and offer care on school vacations and selected holidays.

Program Objectives:
  • To provide an environment of social adjustment in a peer group setting.
  • To assist in the development of self-awareness and independent thought.
  • To instill a sense of positive self image within each of our children.
  • To promote development of physical skills through activities requiring coordination and motivation.

Daily Program:
Includes outdoor and indoor active play, arts & crafts, snack, activity time, computer and homework time, special events, and free swim in the pool (ages 6 & up at the Club only).

Hours of Operation:
  • The ABGC After School Program operates from September through June.
  • The daily schedule is 2:15-6:00.
  • Early Release hours are offered. This schedule coincides with the Arlington Public Schools calendar.
  • Full Day hours are from 8:00am-6:00pm. A full day of care is offered during school vacations, teachers' professional days, and selected holidays. Full days are billed separately and are optional.
