Thoreau Park Discovery Center

  • Welcome to the Thoreau Park Discovery Center, a 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant Program.  This federally funded program is a FREE after-school program designed to serve 2nd through 4th-grade students of Thoreau Park Elementary School.  The Discovery Center is located at Thoreau Park Elementary School.  Students are provided with free transportation to Thoreau Park Elementary School to participate in the Discovery Center program.


    The Discovery Center is about receiving academic enrichment, receiving help with homework, having fun, staying safe and out of trouble, and taking advantage of activities that enrich the lives of our students.

Program Information

  • The program is Monday through Friday 3:30 PM – 5:45 PM.  Students should attend all five days but must attend four days until 5:45 p.m. when in school full time. During the hybrid model, students will attend on their assigned in-school days (Tuesday/Wednesday Last Name A-K and Thursday/Friday Last Name L-Z).

    There is limited availability and students will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.

    Parents / Guardians are responsible for arranging a way home for their children each day.  If your child will be absent from the Discovery Center or if they need to leave early, please send a note to the school office or call the Discovery Center office at (440) 885-8379 to let us know.

    Registration packets can be downloaded from this site, found in the elementary office, or online.

    Once a student is registered into a session, they are automatically re-enrolled into the next session unless a parent /guardian un-enrolls their child.  Or if the waitlist gets too long and we want other students to have the opportunity to participate in this exciting program.
