Before and After School Program

Chestnut Christian Learning Center (CCLC)

In 2013 Chestnut Christian Preschool & Kindergarten responded to a need and began to offer a before and after school program. The program is referred to as CCLC. We offer it beginning at 7:00 in the morning and to 6:00 at night. It is geared for children 3 years old through 6th grade. We use an on-line program called Pick Up Patrol for parents to communicate what their child will be doing on any given day.

The New Boston Central School bus picks up at 7:30 and drops children off at 2:45. We provide a homework area, indoor games, outdoor play, crafts, and a fun and loving environment. The cost is $5 an hour with discounts for families enrolled in the school and for multiple children from the same family.

There is a Registration fee of $25.00 and a Pick Up Patrol fee of $2.00. The registration fee is half for 2nd child.

Children need to bring a snack(s) and filled water bottle each day.

We offer it on a full-time or part-time basis.

The New Boston public school bus picks up and drops off at our location.

Registration forms are required for each student enrolled and a physical dated within the last two years along with immunization records are also needed.

The after school program provides a time set aside for children to work on their homework, do art and various crafts of their choosing, sports, and free time. Electronics are not encouraged, limited to after 4 pm, maximum of half an hour of use, no sharing of electronics and one on the electronic only.

CCLC is also open on some days throughout the year when the public and preschool are not in session. It is called a Modified Open.


Families are billed for the time they use the program. The cost per hour for families enrolled in the preschool is $3.00 an hour per child.

The cost per hour for elementary children is $5 an hour for the first child and $4.00 for the second.

After 6 pm the cost for all children is $1 a minute.

Invoicing is done monthly.

Pick Up Patrol (PUP)

Pick Up Patrol (PUP) is an on-line communication program that you use to let us know what days your child will be attending CCLC and for how long. Each family who has registered for CCLC will receive an email before school starts with a link to sign up for PUP.

Parents log in to PUP and sign their child up for when they will be attending. Changes can be made the day of until 11 am. After 11 am changes for that day have to be made by calling the school or the director directly. PUP sends you an email letting you know the change has been made.

Anytime changes are not made and we have to make calls to track down where the child is or let you know that they came but are not on our list, there is a one hour charge.

In case of inclement weather, we usually follow the New Boston public school system. If they are cancelled we cancel as well. If they are delayed for two hours we delay for one hour. Postings are on the WMUR website and their television station.
