After School Program

UpGrade Children’s Center is a unique outdoor adventure based after school care program for children in grades K-5th. We offer daily local excursions, arts and crafts, active games, reading and homework assistance.


After picking the children up from the local schools we convene at our center located in Princeton-by-the-Sea for a quick snack. Then we pack up and weather pending, head off to the beach, park, or other hidden local gem owner Jon Lowings has discovered over the years. The kids return to the center at approximately 5:00pm for homework, arts and crafts, or indoor games. Pick up time is between 5:00pm-5:30pm. Earlier pick-ups available with notice.
