After School Program


The SMNS After School Program is designed for school age children from Kindergarten up to the fourth grade. We provide snack, homework help, art and dance instruction and free play each day from 3-6pm.   The After School kids go on field trips to the University City Arts League (Spruce Street across from Penn Alexander), as well as to the library, local museums and walking trips around campus.

The After School children are separated from the early education classrooms. Their play is significantly different and they need the time and space to work on their own cognitive, emotional and physical development.


SMNS teachers pick up After School children from a limited number of local public and private schools. Arrangement for after school pick up must be made directly with the SMNS administration.


Families can enroll for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 days per week, or drop in care.  All of these enrollments require the completion of the following forms:

  1. Enrollment Contract
  2. Emergency Contact and Consent
  3. Non-discrimination in Services Disclosure Statement
  4. Emergency Evacuation Plan Letter
  5. Child Health Report
  6. Photo Release Forms (print and web publication) – Optional
