Lower Merion School Age Program provides high quality before and after school care to children attending kindergarten through fifth grade in the Lower Merion School District. Additionally, the Kindergarten Enrichment program is offered to complement Lower Merion School District’s half-day kindergarten program. The Before Care program begins at 7 a.m. and runs until the school day begins, and the After Care program continues from school dismissal until 6 p.m. All Before and After Care programs take place at Lower Merion School District elementary schools. The Kindergarten Enrichment program, held at the MELC Kindergarten Center, offers both morning and afternoon sessions. Transportation to and from the elementary schools to the Kindergarten Center is provided by the Lower Merion School District.
These programs offer engaging, educational experiences that add value to children’s out-of-school time. Students study literacy, math, art, and science and participate in age-appropriate activities throughout the school year. The Lower Merion School Age Program includes positive behavior support in its curriculum to help students maximize their ability to learn, minimize program distractions, and foster positive relationships among peers.
The Lower Merion School Age Program participates in Keystone STARS, Pennsylvania’s quality assurance program for early childhood and school age programs, and is recognized by Council on Accreditation (COA) and National AfterSchool Association (NAA) for its commitment to high quality.
Each day at MELC, you can expect that your child will walk into a happy and safe environment led by our highly qualified, energetic and friendly teachers. During the summer, the Kindergarten Center transforms into Camp MELC, a fun and engaging time with activities, field trips, and weekly themes focused on art, science, history, and more.
