WK Afterschool

About Whittier Kids’ Afterschool Program

PNA Whittier Kids (WK) offers onsite out-of-school-time programs for Whittier Elementary students in grades K-5th. A typical day at WK includes free choice stations, teacher facilitated activities, outside and/or gym play, reading time, and a hearty snack. We strive to provide a safe, inclusive, and fun space where all kids feel welcome and valued.

Enrollment in WK’s school year program is limited to Whittier Elementary Students. All kids ages 5-12 are welcome to enroll in WK’s summer camp program.

WK is licensed and monitored through the Department of Children, Youth and Families and voluntarily participates in Schools Out Washington’s program quality initiative. Decisions regarding curriculum goals and staff practices are guided by program assessment tools, as well as PNA’s mission and values.
