After-School at Spence's Farm

Our After-School program is designed to give children the opportunity to decompress, complete their homework, and learn-by-doing. The beautiful, open farm environment helps children feel centered, calm, and happy. They are well-supervised, free to move around outdoors or in, help out in the barn, or just read a book!

After-School on the Farm is centered in the main farmhouse and in our extensive out-buildings and grounds. Children eat snacks that they bring from home when they arrive at the farm each day and sometimes they eat items from our organic garden. They can also receive help and supervision with homework if needed. From 4 – 5:30 each day they can choose which focused activity they wish to do (i.e. work in garden, play in the yard, do crafts, cook from the garden, hike, work with the animals, and more! You can also register for our Enrichment Classes in horsemanship and woodworking for an additional fee. Children have choices!

How it Works … You get to decide what works for you! You can sign your child(ren) up for just one day a week, Monday through Friday, or anything in between! As long as within Farm policy you can even change your schedule without penalty. We make it work for you.

Schedule & Logistics … made easy! After-School hours are from 3 to 6 pm each day. Serving most schools within Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, & Orange County the farm vans pick up students at their school & drop off at the Farm. Some school buses will drop students off at Spence's Farm at parents’ request.
