At Congregation Beth Elohim’s After School Center your child can play chess on Monday, take a theater class on Tuesday and launch a rocket on Friday. CBE’s program offers children in kindergarten through sixth grade a wide variety of instructional classes and recreational activities in a safe and caring environment, supervised by a highly qualified staff. Our program encourages children to express themselves and their creativity in a relaxed enjoyable atmosphere. Children can sign up for a single class—or the whole afternoon.
The CBE After School Center is offering two on-site programs at PS 295 and PS 39. We are offering several exciting enrichment classes; sports (soccer and hockey), ballet, hip hop, cooking, circus arts, hands on science, puppetry. Children are escorted to CBE for swimming.

The After School Center provides a pick-up service from many neighborhood schools, including PS 321, 282, 372, 39, 10 and Berkeley Carroll. Our staff will pick-up from local schools that have at least five children attending the After-School Center per day. If there are fewer than five children attending per day, pick-up is up to the discretion of the Director.
Kindergarten and first grade: Classes for children in kindergarten through sixth grade are offered from 3:30 – 4:30 PM. Children spend the second hour with their counselors and group doing choice time in a preschool classroom or playing active games in the social hall. During nice weather we use Prospect Park for outdoor play. Counselors escort the children to their activities throughout the day. A supervised homework room is available to first graders. There is a minimum two-day registration for these grades. There is no minimum for single classes. Courses include cooking, computers, art, dance, sports, science, gymnastics, karate and instructional swim.
Second through sixth grades: Children in second through sixth grade can sign up for one class per day from our course listing. In each course the child’s individual ability is emphasized, from basic through more advanced skills. When the child is not participating in a class, a supervised game room, gym and homework room are available. Courses include chess, photography, art, jewelry, dance, sports, gymnastics, computer, swim, video, theater and computer.
