Education and Training Program

Preparing Woodside Families for the Future

Woodside on the Move believes that all of its residents deserve a well-rounded education and training to succeed. We provide afterschool and summer camp for youth in grades K to 6, and English and computer classes for adults.

Afterschool and Summer Camp Programs for Children

Our afterschool Programs at P.S. 152 and P.S. 11 serve approximately 700 Woodside-based school children each year. The programs run Mondays through Fridays from 2:30pm to 5:30pm during the regular school year. Additional holiday programming is provided from 8:00am to 6:00pm during school holidays, as well as winter, mid-winter, and spring recesses.

Our Summer Camp Program serves approximately 300 elementary school youth and operates for 7 weeks, Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 5:30pm in July and August.

Classes held at both schools include homework help, sports, music and performance arts, dance, music, creative writing, health and nutrition, computers, and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) activities such as a 3-D Printer Program. All academic activities emphasize the Common Core Aligned Tasks learned during the school day and offer students individualized support.

We also work with a range of professional organizations including NY Road Runners Youth and Community Services, Mare Nostrum Theater, GrowNYC, and Artistic Dreams International.

Enrollment for the After School and Summer Camp programs is determined via a lottery system, as demand always exceeds available program slots. Please check the WOTM main page for announcements.
