PROGRAMS ARE NOW FULL. IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE PLACED ON A WAITING LIST, PLEASE VISIT THE MAIN OFFICE. THANK YOU!
Welcome to our Westbrook Learns program!
Westbrook LEARNS is open to Westbrook students in grades K-6. Housed in the Westbrook Community Center at 426 Bridge Street, the After-School program takes full advantage of the Center’s facilities. This includes our Art Studio, Learning Lab, Cornelia Warren Recreational Wing, Playgrounds, and Athletic Fields. We strive to create a program that is structured, meaningful, and enjoyable. Activities are designed to suit a wide range of interests and abilities. Our objective is to provide quality attention, thoughtful guidance, authentic experiences, and engaging activities to enhance and expand the learning of Westbrook students.
Before-school programming occurs at each school, except for Congin, which takes place at the Westbrook Community Center. Staff will walk the students next door at the appropriate time.
After-school students are bused to the Westbrook Community Center, except for Congin, which walk next door with program staff.
