K-F Life

Afterschool & Mini-Courses

Afterschool and extracurricular activities are vital parts of the K-F program. They allow children to test and stretch their interests and talents in new ways, while making new friends and learning valuable social skills.


The heart of our Afterschool Program for PreK - Grade 6 involves Afterschool and Mini-Courses, which are fee-based and generally run Monday through Friday, from September to June (except during school vacations). Afterschool is available from school dismissal until 6:00 p.m.; Mini-Courses typically run from 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
The Afterschool Program (PreK - Grade 6)
The Kew-Forest School’s Afterschool Program was developed to meet the needs of families who require childcare after the school day is over. Our Afterschool Program provides a safe, secure, and enriching environment in which children can grow socially, physically, emotionally, and academically.

Mini-Courses (Kindergarten - Grade 6)
Mini-Courses are special courses that meet once or twice a week and introduce young children to a variety of activities that help build confidence and skills. Offerings typically include activities such as chess, lego robotics, soccer, or coding. 
The Afterschool Program & Mini-Course Registration
Children may attend Afterschool on a full- or part-time basis; each Mini-Course runs for approximately one trimester. Information and registration materials are sent to K-F families in the fall and right before sessions start. If you need additional information, please contact our Director of Auxiliary Programs and Summer Camp, Keesha Sterling at ksterling@kewforest.org.
