Afterschool Program

Licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC).

NOTE: With the announcement of full-time in-person learning for school age students starting April 5th, and for middle school students starting April 28th, we are going to shift our focus to afterschool. Afterschool is open to students in Kindergarten-8th grade. While the last day for Cambridge Public Schools is Wednesday, June 23rd, our last day of afterschool will be June 17th so we have time the following week to set up our spaces and orient staff for Outback. We will begin afterschool for new students on April 5th.

Our Program is committed to providing a high-quality experience for youth from Cambridge and local communities. We value creativity, culture, and community, and our curriculum is designed to encourage expression and exploration. 

This new afterschool program merges our traditional afterschool model of developing social and emotional skills through play and relationship with engaging Maud Morgan Arts curriculum.

We offer students the opportunity to try a range of fine arts, including hand building ceramics, mixed media paper arts, printmaking, and core fundamentals of fine art.

We also value choice and variety in our programming, and our teachers plan activities that meet children’s needs at all ages and energy levels. From the physically active, like basketball and tag, to mentally-engaging, such as collaborative board games or science experiments, there is something for every kid to enjoy!

Our Staff is led by Director of Maud Morgan Arts Cory Shea and is a team of creative, caring and attentive individuals, some of whom have been part of our programming for years. While backgrounds vary, all of our teachers can expertly support our students in exploring their creativity, building relationships and, most importantly, having fun!

Our Space In addition to our spacious backyard, which is set up with large event tents for socially distant activities, we will also have use of two indoor spaces as the weather gets colder: Our classrooms at 20 Sacramento Street and the various studios inside the Maud Morgan Arts building, which have both been adapted to accommodate for more space and better ventilation. 

COVID-19 Precautions To help mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19 in our programs, we require everyone on site to wear masks at all times except when eating or drinking. Only program participants and staff are allowed on the program premises; drop off and pick up are at the entrance to our backyard to avoid any unnecessary contact between families. We follow state guidelines for social distancing and help our students follow these expectations with kind, frequent reminders.
