After School Programming is Back!

We are excited to offer after school programs for Vartan Gregorian students at our Fox Point Clubhouse.

We are taking childcare applications for children ages Kindergarten through 12 years old.  There will be a LIMITED CAPACITY available at each location and enrollment will be on a FIRST COME basis.

OVERVIEW

The Fall Session begins the week of October 18. All clubs will end the week of December 13. In the case of Club cancellations due to inclement weather or Covid restrictions,  a Club make-up  day may be added at the end of the session.

No Clubs will be held on the following dates:

  • October 20: No school– PPSD Distance Learning
  • November 2: Fox Point Club Closed – Election Polling Site
  • November 11: No school—Veteran’s Day
  • November 24-26: No school—Thanksgiving Break

IN-PERSON PROGRAMS

Clubs start at 4:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday.

All Vartan Gregorian programs will be in-person and meet once a week unless specified.  All Clubs are for specific grades, as listed in the program descriptions.

At school dismissal time, students with clubs are called over the intercom to the Vartan Gregorian gym, where BGCP staff take attendance. All classroom teachers receive students’ club schedules before clubs start, so that they are aware of which students have clubs on which days. Students are then brought to their program locations at the Fox Point Clubhouse by their instructors.

Programs end at 5:00 PM and your child must be picked up at this time. There is no Open Door program or Transportation available at this time.  All dismissal and parent pick-up takes place at the Fox Point Club, 90 Ives Street, Providence.  

Parents can designate on their registration forms who is allowed to pick up a child. Anyone picking up your child MUST be on your approved list of adults allowed to pick up your child, and anyone picking up your child MUST be prepared to show identification. All adults must wear a mask inside the building.
