After School Childcare

City of Montpelier



We're hiring! 

Two positions to support our Afterschool Childcare Program. Click here for more info. 

We are a Licensed Afterschool Program

We have expanded our options to now include single(or a couple) day(s) a week attendance. You no longer have to commit for a full week. See the new daily fees below. Let us know if you have any questions. The City of Montpelier has opened an afterschool childcare program. This program runs in accordance with the school calendar year and will be open many days when schools are closed during the school year (for holidays, etc.). Any scheduled closures during holidays and other scheduled off-days will be announced in advance. The City is running this program 5 days a week, Monday – Friday 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm. This program is run out of the Old River Rock School space located at 46 Barre Street next door to the Senior Center. Fees are adjusted for full days in several of the weeks offered.

The Afterschool Program is for all children who are in Kindergarten up to 12 years old. The City plans on ensuring young children arrive safely from school by having program staff walk children to the Afterschool Program directly from Union Elementary School.

When school is not in session, the Program will be open for drop-off and pick-up of participating children at 46 Barre Street. Each day will be filled with all kinds of age-appropriate activities (indoor activities, crafts & outdoor or gym activities)!

The Program’s staff consists of an experienced Director and Program Staff who are certified in CPR and First Aid and is managed by the City’s Recreation Department.

Parents may pre-enroll their children in the program to ensure a spot. Pre-registration is required for the Afterschool Program. Payment is due the Thursday prior to the week the child is attending.  

Pre-enrolled weeks may be cancelled by calling the City’s Recreation office at 802-225-8699. You can find us on the web at   We are recruiting for substitute teachers for this program, too! Contact Arne if interested in learning more or applying. 

Masking guidance is in accordance with the Montpelier Roxbury Public School District. At this time, masks will be required indoors for all youth activities in our after-school childcare program until further notice.
