Our Philosophy– Knowledge, Nature, and Wellness are at the roots of everything we do. We believe education continues outside the classroom, so we empower children to explore the world through their own lenses. Our environment in and around 40 Tioga Way is optimized to invite and inspire the natural flow of discovery, creativity, and play. Through these channels, children become resourceful problem solvers, and organically develop social and emotional wellness.
Schedule– After School Club at Island Roots begins at the end of the school day, extending academic and social opportunities until 6:00pm. Classes, or Clubs, are built into each afternoon without any extra sign-ups or payments. Our center is also open for Discovery Days during vacation weeks and days off from school, because we know that they're some of the best times for natural learning and self-directed exploration. For specific program dates, visit our calendar.
Transportation– Fully included in program tuition, students who attend schools within Marblehead will be picked up at school dismissal each day by Island Roots Instructors, and transported to Island Roots by professional drivers accredited for student transport. Students attending from outside of Marblehead are also welcome in our After School Club, but guardians must arrange transportation separately. Upon request (and with permission) we will share applicable carpooling information.
Knowledge, Nature, and Wellness are at the roots of everything we do.
Discovery Days and Vacation Discovery Weeks are the best choice for informed families who want professional education to continue while school is out. Our program is led by licensed educators with traditional, experiential, and outdoor education experience.
Our tuition reflects the quality of a program trusted by parents and educators, tailored to fit the needs and schedule of your family. Transportation, half days, and Clubs are fully integrated into our tuition - you'll never be surprised by unnecessary fees.
We've chosen to represent prices as a yearly tuition (see below for tuition plans) so that you see exactly what you pay, but it's based on a rate of twenty dollars per hour. That's about what you would pay a babysitter, and comparable to (even competitive with) other programs in the area when compared to their pricing after hidden fees, extra class costs, and membership dues.
All families enrolling more than one child will receive a 5% sibling discount applied to total tuition.
Enrollments after the start of the 2021-2022 Academic Year will be prorated by week to reflect start date.
Families may choose from the following tuition plan options:
One-time payment upon enrollment. Club days or Discovery Days/Weeks added after payment will also be paid upon enrollment.
