  • Information and Guidelines

    We will be open every day after school from 2:00-6:00pm. There will be a late fee of $15 charged each time parents are more than 5 minutes late picking up their child(ren).

    The Big Dream After School Program will run on the Manheim Central School District Calendar. (A list of predetermined closed/early dismissal dates will be provided to you.)

    We take the safety of your children very seriously, so the door to the studio will be locked once all students arrive. To gain entrance to the building, please ring the door bell and wait for a supervising adult to let you in. You may take your child home once they are signed out.

    The Big Dream After School Art Club will be open every day after school from 2:00-6:00pm. We will run on the Manheim Central School District Calendar.

    After school care will be provided on days with a planned early dismissal. Your child will need to bring a packed lunch but we will provide a snack. In the event of an unplanned early dismissal due to inclement weather, Big Dream will remain open until you are able to pick up your child (no later than 6:00 pm). Alternate arrangements will need to be made for your child on snow days and scheduled days off, as our after school club will be closed.

    Our after school care is available for $20 per day for each child. Your payment is due on the first Monday of each month (for full timers, part time care students can pay on the first day of each month that they receive care) We accept checks or credit card payments. Checks can be made out to “Big Dream Creative Arts Studio”. Credit card payments can be made online or in studio.

    Transportation will be provided for Manheim Central students. A member of our Big Dream staff will meet your K-4th grader at their school and walk them to our studio on Main Street. Our 5th and 6th grade participants will need to arrange transportation through Manheim Central’s bussing system. A Big Dream staff member will meet our MCSD middle schoolers at a determined bus stop and escort them to the studio.

    Although the club is open to any student K-6th grade, we are unable to offer transportation from other districts to the after school art club. Parents are responsible for making these arrangements through the school’s bussing system, carpool with another family, etc. Transportation changes cannot be made without a signed note sent with child or or a phone call from the parent/guardian.
