After School Program
What is The Spot?
The Spot is an after school program serving 3rd through 7th graders in the University Place School District. Operating since 2000, Spot was designed in response to a felt-need in University Place for quality, affordable after school care for students. This highly relational program focuses on providing academic support to students by creating a safe, comfortable place for kids where they can complete their homework with qualified staff available to assist with questions and comprehension of the material provided.
What is the Daily Schedule?
Students are transported to our program housed at Olympic View Baptist Church via bus. This service is provided by the University Place School District at no extra charge for your children.
Students Begin Arriving around 2:50pm
Snack Time 3:45 - 4:00pm
Homework Time 4:00 - 5:00pm
Enrichment / Gym Activities 5:00 - 6:00pm
Program Closes 6:00pm
Additional time for homework help can be provided for students needing extra time or support!
We offer a variety of enrichment/physical activities. These can include but are not limited to: playing a game in the gym, explore the outside playground, art activities, or enjoying board games.
What is the Yearly Schedule?
The Spot is open during the school year Monday thru Friday 2:30 pm till 6 pm. We do function on Early Release Days from 12 pm till 6 pm. We are not open on Half Days when your child is released before 12 pm. Additionally, we are not open when there is no school.
The first day of The Spot is the Monday after the first day of school. For the 2019-2020 school year, the first day of Spot is September 9th 2019. The last day of Spot is the last Friday of the school year. For the 2019-2020 school year the last day of Spot will be June 5th 2020.
A common question is 'Why do you open after school has begun and before it closes?'. This is due to us being an academic based program and not a childcare facility. Since children have little to no homework the first and last week of school, there is little material for us to cover with them.
Who are Spot's Partners?
Spot is proud to partner with the University Place School District to provide transportation from the primary and intermediate schools. We also partner with Olympic View Baptist Church to provide a safe and secure learning environment designed for your children.
