The Center is open every day Portland Public Schools is open; hours are 3 pm to 5:30 pm. Children are enrolled on a first come, first served basis until all spots are filled.

Staff meets your child at their school at dismissal time and accompanies them back to Bethel’s building. They are offered a substantial after-school snack. There is time set aside for homework, reading or mathematics games. Once school work is done, children may choose an activity – games, crafts, outdoor play (weather permitting).
