  • After School Class Program Overview:

    Finding a high-quality after-school program is hard enough – what about a program that re-energizes your child and keeps the classroom momentum going? Our fun and engaging after-school classes are different in that this isn’t child-care or play-focused after-school care. Our programs provide children with unique recreational and educational learning experiences in cultural, performing and fine arts. Our quality standards beat the typical after school care-program designed for afternoon childcare. Students who attend Illumination Learning Studio get academic support and participate in our enriching cultural arts activities and classes taught by specialized instructors and teachers!

    Each day, students spend the afternoon in classes specially created for our cultural arts programs. Groups rotate daily and each week students get Music class, Performance and Drama, Book-club, Fine Arts, Technology and Movement classes. Daily educational support in the form of homework help is provided for all students to get a jump start on their school assigned homework. Parents that wish to can add Private Piano lessons, Guitar or Ukelele lessons, Voice or Breakdance lessons to the mix. 

    Before and After School classes run the duration of the school year. Students may enroll at any time as availability allows and we maintain a small waitlist.

    School Early Dismissal pick-up is available for a nominal fee throughout the year.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Is there a partial-week option available?
    A: We have found that parents like the flexibility of our single monthly rate, which allows them to use as many or as few days of program classes as they like. We simply ask that parents let us know their student’s schedule.

    Q: Do you pick-up early on days where the schools have early dismissal?
    A: Yes! Not many other programs make accommodations for this but we do for a nominal fee!

    Q: Is my child automatically enrolled from year-to-year?
    A: Each spring we charge a $100 non-refundable annual registration fee for classes starting the next Fall. This fee goes towards new supplies, equipment and maintenance.

    Q: Is Illumination Learning Studio a School-aged Care Provider, licensed by the Department of Early Learning?
    A: No. We offer recreational programs using our own proprietary curriculum developed by our specialized team. We have a sole focus in providing enriching cultural, performing and fine arts classes. Our business is exempt from licensing requirements of school-aged care programs (care being the operative word), as we are solely a recreational program operating classes during the hours directly before and following school. We are not a child care provider nor do we provide child care type services.

    Q: Do you offer camps on days when school is not in session or days where school is cancelled due to weather?
    A: Yes! For upcoming camps and costs please visit our School-Year Camps page.

    • This is a fabulous organization. We use the before and after school program and my daughter loves it. They provide a very high level of care and education for elementary school kids: art history, piano, performance, yoga, homework help, playing at the park, chilling…amazing.

    • My daughter is in the after school program and we couldn’t be happier. Great stuff and fun and valuable activities. Hard to get her to leave at pick up.
