Potter's House School & Child Care Center
The Potter's House After-School Program is open to all youth from surrounding Upper Valley communities. The after-school program runs during the school year five days a week from 3:15 - 5:30 pm. The program focuses on academic enrichment and character development of participating children and teens also using resources in the game and activities center. The program is staffed by adults who have undergone training in youth development. Students from a diverse spectrum of economic backgrounds will receive individual support while building relationships in community.

AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM

  1. Game & Activity Center
    Community youth and the after school program need a safe and supervised setting for recreation. The game and activity center is such a place. It is roughly 4,400 square feet. The space will be equipped with recreational activities such as video games, board games, music and media. The setting is comfortable and relaxed, offering a supervised recreational setting for youth to engage in structured activities and Internet.
  2. Program Activities
    * Tutoring * Mentoring * Basic Education Achievement * Computer training * Entrepreneurial skills * Character development
  3. Special Needs & Care
    We meet special needs and care as some of our students come through the Vermont Department of Children and Family Services, looking for a stable and loving place.
  4. Individualized Plans
    Upon entering the program, a plan will be developed to provide for their academic enrichment. Students who progress academically and demonstrate the development of self-governing skills, will be eligible to participate in the Culinary Career Academy program.
Since coming to Potter's House I think I'm learning more. I enjoy it a lot more. I wasn't thinking about my future, now I am.

Did you know?

There are nearly 1,000 children K-5th grade in the Hartford School District. Currently, after school programs have waiting lists of up to 18 months.

By securing the new building quickly, we can impact the need with an initial 40 students, with plans of later expanding to 100.
Among VT's K-12 students:
21,690 are enrolled in an after-school program
22,163 are waiting for an available program
21,690 are alone and unsupervised after school

Across America 1 in 5 kids are home alone and unsupervised from 3:00 to 6:00 pm, when juvenile crime and victimization peak, and parents are working.

8 in 10 VT parents say after school programs give them peace of mind and help them keep their jobs.

79% say after school programs help them keep their jobs
66% say after school programs reduce the likelihood kids will engage in risky behavior
