SCHOOL AGE PROGRAMS
The Guild of St. Agnes offers school age programs in the Devens, Fitchburg, Gardner and Worcester communities. The Guild transports from several schools to the center. Open to children enrolled in kindergarten through grade 6, these programs are designed to meet the full range of each child’s developmental, social and emotional needs. Homework assistance, enrichment and recreational activities along with health and life skills training make up our daily activities. We know that children who are safe and feel nurtured become responsible and resilient adults, which are our goals and the foundation of our program.
During the school year in Worcester, the Guild operates after school programs in six of the public schools, namely: Quinsigamond, Tatnuck Magnet, Union Hill, Woodland Academy, Worcester Arts Magnet and Rice Square School as well as at our Child Care Centers located at 129 Granite Street, 353 Grove Street, 54 Croydon Street, and 336 Hamilton Street. Additionally, we transport children from several of the other Worcester public schools to one of these sites for after school services. We are pleased with this partnership as it is beneficial to all involved – the children, their families, the teachers, and the community.
Most of the after school programs have an all day summer component. Each program provides two field trips a week throughout the summer. The locations of our summer programs in Worcester are at Granite Street, Grove Street, Burncoat Street, Hamilton Street and Quinsigamond Elementary school and then outside of Worcester they are at our centers in Devens, Fitchburg, and Gardner.
