A Program of Schools for Children

Vacation Clubhouse

The Lesley Ellis School Vacation Clubhouse offers parents coverage on early release days, conference days, and many holidays and school vacations. More than a convenient option for working parents, the program is designed to enhance children’s social skills and intellectual development and to provide a fun alternative to the typical school day.

Full day programming typically includes a field trip, taking advantage of our area’s vast resources, as well as the time to explore them. Our Vacation Clubhouse goals align with our school-day priorities—to provide meaningful, fully immersive, hands-on experiences. So, a visit to the Harvard Peabody Museum will find students participating in an archeological dig, rather than only viewing artifacts in cases. Early release days might include a visit from Mad Science of Greater Boston, creative craft projects, and trips to the Arlington Farmer’s Market, Spy Pond, or other local attractions.
