Elementary School Out-of-School Time Program, Grades 1-5

Waltham Boys & Girls Club’s Out-of-School-Time Program (OST) is licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC). Club staff implement interactive programs and activities in our core areas of programming: Education, Health & Wellness, Leadership, The Arts, Career Readiness, and Sports & Recreation. While providing a safe place to go after school, these programs help children develop critical skills to carry them into adulthood. We encourage all children in grades 1-5 are to participate in this program. Transportation is available to the Club from the following Waltham schools:

  • Henry Whittemore Elementary School
  • MacArthur Elementary
  • Northeast Elementary School
  • Thomas R. Plympton Elementary School
  • Waltham Dual Language School

From homework help and healthy snacks to STEM experiments, art projects, and plenty of physical activity, there is so much to learn, explore, and enjoy at the Club!
