Martin County Parks and Recreation offers free after school programs in four convenient locations for children ages five and older (children age five must be enrolled in kindergarten). Our after school programs are proudly funded by the Children's Services Council of Martin County.
All of our staff at all of program locations are level two background screened by the Department of Children and Families, CPR and First Aid trained and certified. Homework assistance is offered daily by our staff and we encourage outdoor playtime.
