During the School Year
While school is in session, we operate an after school program on-site at 13 Roanoke County elementary schools. After School for Kids is an enrichment program for grades K-5 offering daily age-appropriate activities that foster physical, social emotional and cognitive development. At Green Ridge Recreation Center, our Ridge Kids after school program is open to grades K-5, with transportation from Glen Cove and Fort Lewis elementary schools.
