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
- Field games
- STEM activities
- S’more making
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 Fort Mill School District with the intention of creating a safe place for working parents to leave their children that encourages education, socialization and outdoor exploration. Homework, crafts, centers, snack and outdoor play are all a part of the FLYERS afterschool experience. Supplementary programs such as "Science and Nature" and "Fit Kids" are also provided to character building, environmental stewardship and physical fitness. FLYERS staff are all experienced teachers and caregivers that provide a 1:12 staff-to-student ratio. Children in kindergarten through 5th grade will engage in activities that encourage creativity, social relationships, appropriate behavior and positive self-image.
"Our boys absolutely love the Adventure Center program. The staff plans fun activities every day, from arts and crafts to nature hikes and themed days. Each afternoon, the boys ask to be picked up later and never seem to want to leave. The cost of the program is very affordable, especially considering all of the events that they participate in. Thank you for providing a great, safe, fun place for our kids!"
"We love the fact our son has the ability to explore new things on a daily basis at the Adventure Center. He loves the outside activities such as hiking, dodgeball, etc. He also enjoys the science and nature experiments. By the time he gets home he is exhausted, which is a good thing. It is really important to us that our son gets the opportunity to be a kid and play with other children after school in a safe environment."
