Important Update Following:
Upstart Crow is considered an Approved Emergency Child Care Provider. As long as the State of Emergency continues we are approved to have children on site during school hours. The current date given for the end of the State of Emergency is March 3rd. The governor has typically waited until the last couple of days to extend the declaration. If we haven’t heard that she is extending the SoE by Friday, February 26th, we will plan on providing child care through Wednesday, March 3rd. If the declaration is extended, we will provide child care through Friday, March 19th. There will be no child care or camp during spring break. We will not be providing child care after spring break.
A limited number of need-based SCHOLARSHIPS are available for MATINEE. Apply: TUITION ASSISTANCE
Matinee is a daytime, on-site learning environment for students, grades 1-5. Every morning, students participate in their remote classes or complete homework at their own desk, supervised and supported by Upstart Crow staff, with strict and consistent adherence to physical distancing and safety guidelines. We provide a stable internet connection with capacity for many users, so Zoom connectivity is never an issue.
After school work is done for the day, we move on to FUN!
Students will enjoy activities such as, theatre games, outside time, musical theatre themed arts and crafts, and weekly musical watch parties!
Utilizing effective safety tools such as masks, floor-taping, pool noodles, socially-distanced games, and more, Upstart Crow staff ensure students have the quiet space and support necessary to engage in schoolwork AND the opportunity to experience the life-enriching benefits of the performing arts. And, importantly, our Matinee programming enables parents to focus on their own workplace and home obligations, confident that their children are safe, supported, and engaged throughout the school day.
