Before & After School

Hosted at the Moharimet Elementary School (part of the Oyster River Cooperative School District) in Madbury, our before and after school program “Our Time” provides flexible, quality care and recreation designed to meet unique needs of school-age children (ages 5 and older).”Our Time” fosters an open and accepting environment, where differences are celebrated and friendships are nurtured. Children are given autonomy to choose between small group, large group, active or quiet activities. Our wide array of choices includes open-ended arts and crafts, active games and sports, quiet games, reading, or homework. Most days include some time outside enjoying the wonderful playground at Moharimet Elementary School.

“Our Time” operates 7:00-9:00 am and 3:30-5:30 pm Monday-Friday.  Full day programming is offered on teacher workshop days and during school vacation weeks, often times including special guests and field trips.

*** We are currently unable to offer TimberNook programing at this time***

We also offer TimberNook programs throughout the school year and summer.  Remember when children spent hours at a time exploring the woods, inventing, creating and having fun?  This new and enriching program operates in the beautiful woods and trails surrounding the Sugar Shack at Moharimet Elementary School in Madbury, NH.  We run TimberNook on teacher workshop days, during school vacations, in the summer and occasionally after school as well.  Sessions have included Storybook Camp, Going Wild Camp, Fall Musical Camp and Enchanted Forest Camp. To learn more about upcoming programs visit our TimberNook page.
