After-School Program

We are currently accepting registration for our after-school program which begins the first day of NYC public school and lasts through the last day of school. We provide pick up from schools in Forest Hills, Kew Gardens and Rego Park. We offer a hot snack, homework assistance, language and music lessons, and outdoor play (weather permitting). We offer programs for students in grades K-8. The after-school day begins with gathering at the site followed by outdoor play, a snack, then homework. The remainder of the day (depending on the day of the week) is filled with either music lessons, Spanish lessons, or arts and crafts, and maybe a movie (Fridays once or twice a month). Middle school students take advantage of activities geared to helping them adjust to middle school and transition to high school. Students enrolled in the after-school program receive a discount on our full-day programs when schools are closed.



Afterschool hours until 7:30pm, daily hot lunch provided, high teacher/student ratio, and more!
Only $425 monthly
Register before July 1 and receive one month free!!

Janis B.Forest Hills,NY

“This camp is extraordinary, staffed by a team of compassionate, wise and generous people.”

Lori KRego Park, NY

My son absolutely loves WorldPlay/Starchild Camps!  He’s engaged and excited everyday! The team is top notch and extremely dedicated to the kids & their jobs! Enrolling for summer camp, at my sons request! Nothing more comforting then your child feeling safe & happy when they are outside your home!

Debbie F.Kew Gardens, NY

“This was her first time attending a Starchild camp and she had a wonderful experience. She had excellent counselors, a variety of experiences, and was able to try new things. Each day she came home happy, confident, and full of amazing stories.”

David R.Flushing, NY

Kelli and her team are so wonderful with the kids. She plans out such great activities for them, both fun and educational. See you next summer!

Lance G.Douglaston, NY

“My son has had a terrific experience at Starchild Camp. This is his third summer attending. Occasionally, I send him to another camp for a week or two just to mix things up; he always comes home and says, “It’s good, but Starchild is better.”
