Keane on Kids After School Enrichment Programs 2017-2018

The Keane on Kids After School Enrichment Program was a verified success last year with about 1/3 of the Elementary students enrolled in creative after school programs.  That was 1,858 enrollments!  Programs from Gardening and Tennis to Cooking, Chess and Musicals were all well attended this spring. 

This Fall there will be additional unique offerings, such as Aviation, Fashion Design with Denim, and Magic Tricks!  There will also be 'cast only' auditions and Set Design workshops at Webb this fall for Webb's Spring 2018 Musical program "Aristocats". 


Again this year, Keane on Kids After School Enrichment Director, Caroline Fazzina, has designed programs specific to each school, and they will vary with the session.  There is a site coordinator at each school who greets the children, ensures that the program runs smoothly, and monitors safe dismissal at the end of the program.     

The Keane on Kids After School Enrichment Program works in partnership:

  • Richard M. Keane Foundation
  • Wethersfield Parks and Recreation
  • Elementary School PTO's
  • Wethersfield Public Schools
  • Tri Town YMCA

The Vision is to consistently provide a variety of After School Enrichment programs at all Wethersfield Elementary Schools in a safe and fun environment in which children can participate in athletic, academic, and social programs with the support and guidance of caring adults.

Children at all Wethersfield Elementary Schools are welcome to participate.  Registration for each activity is through the Wethersfield Parks and Recreation Department. Those who are preregistered in the Keane on Kids After School Enrichment program can enjoy an activity for an hour after dismissal time.

Sign up Now!  Fall programs begin the week of September 18th.  They will run for various numbers of weeks, depending on the program, and will all wrap up right before the Christmas holiday. 

Watch for the Fall Parks and Recreation brochure in the Rare Reminder in late August as well as online soon at the Parks and Recreation website (  Registration begins on August 30th.  You will also be able to register in the Parks and Registration Department at Town Hall.
