Afterschool on the Greenway

Afterschool on the Greenway is able to offer your child fun, unique experiences that you won't find anywhere else in Fort Mill. We are excited to have your child with us each afternoon to breathe in the fresh air and get out on the Anne Springs Close Greenway.

In addition to typical afterschool activities like homework time and regular play, with our certified staff we are able to offer:

  • Fort building
  • Hiking
  • Crafting
  • Gardening
  • Kayaking
  • Field games
  • STEM activities
  • S’more making
  • Archery

Much like the FLYERS program, Afterschool on the Greenway is a safe place to leave your child after school that encourages education, socialization, play and a huge amount of getting outside! Our program is run by experienced childcare and afterschool professionals who are able to offer your child the best experiences both indoors and outdoors. We maintain a low ratio to be sure the children are well-supervised at all times.

Mission statement: To provide creative opportunities that cultivate minds through outdoor adventures and mentorship in order to connect children to nature and their community.

FLYERS Afterschool Program

The FLYERS program was established over 25 years ago in partnership with the Fort Mill School District with the intention of creating a safe space for afterschool opportunities. The FLYERS Afterschool program takes place in all Fort Mill School District Elementary schools.  We provide afterschool care for children in grades Kindergarten thru 5th grade from dismissal to 6 p.m. Children will engage in activities that encourage creativity, problem solving, social relationships, appropriate behavior and positive self-image. While planned activities, centers, snack and outdoor play are all part of the FLYERS Afterschool experience, supplementary programs such as, Fit Kids, Two by Two Character Development and Pathfinders are also provided. FLYERS staff are a diverse team of experienced teachers and caregivers that strive to provide a 1:12 staff-to-student ratio.
