After School Program

The CCBA is deepening its commitment to increasing the quality of educational and recreational programming for youth across the Upper Valley. Starting in the 2024-2025 school year, our after school program (licensed by the New Hampshire Department of Child Care Licensing/DHHS) will integrate evidence-based standards recommended by the Afterschool Alliance.

Our CCBA After School Program will accommodate up to 60 children in kindergarten through sixth grades. Our experienced staff will promote social and emotional learning, and help each child build resilience while promoting kindness, respect, cooperation, problem-solving and community-building. We encourage curiosity and celebrate diversity.

The CCBA After School Program will be housed in the Carter Community Building (CCB). We have recently added two additional washrooms and are renovating our existing ADA bathroom in anticipation of our updated after school program. School buses arrive at the CCB from both Lebanon elementary schools. The middle school has a drop off on Bank Street near AVA, and children walk to the CCB from there.  

We look forward to serving as an after school hub for children in downtown Lebanon! We will begin with CCBA-related opportunities as we launch this aspect of the program. For example, should your child be participating in Little Longhorns Basketball, ACES Volleyball, CCBA swim lessons, Lightning Soccer, or ECHO Lacrosse at the CCBA, we will work with those programs to ensure your child is safely transferred from the CCB. We hope this allows your child to expand their opportunities to try new activities! We also plan to include access to other after school program opportunities in downtown Lebanon once we get the program underway.

We will be consistently adapting to personalize the learning experience for each child. We will actively listen to families’ feedback, and gauge each child’s progress through assessments at enrollment, mid-school year, and at the end of our program. 


Time: Our program runs Monday through Friday, 2:30 to 6:00 p.m.

Days per Week: There are three options. You will be committed to the plan you enroll in for the full school year. We cannot accommodate trading days of the week, because we must adhere to state guidelines on staffing and ratios and know which kids are expected on which days.

5 Days (Monday through Friday)

3 Days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)

2 Days (Tuesday, Thursday)

Dates: We follow the Lebanon Schools/SAU 88 calendar, from the first day of school to the last day, including make-up days.

  • We are closed on all SAU 88 designated holidays, with the exception of school week vacations. We offer CCBA vacation camps for school week holidays in December, February, and April. Priority placement will go to children enrolled in the CCBA After School Program. There will be an additional fee to attend vacation camps, and parents must enroll their child(ren) when registration is made available. 
  • If the school district cancels school due to snow or other emergency reasons, we will not be open. 

Monthly Rates: Our rates are based on the 180-day school year (which equals 36 five-day weeks).
