We are pleased to announce that after a successful pilot year we will be expanding our School Age After School Program. Originally piloted as a program for 10 children in kindergarten through third grade, the program will expand to 20 children in kindergarten through fifth grade for the 2010 - 2011 public school year. This program will be offered under the auspices of the Dean of Planning and Academic Affairs (DoPAA) and Wimpfheimer Nursery School.

Eligibility: Children in grades kindergarten through 5th grade. Children who are members of Vassar families, who have previously attended Wimpfheimer, or who have siblings currently attending WNS or the Infant Toddler Center will be given enrollment priority. Community families are welcome to apply.
