The After-School Group

After-School Group Picture


The Antioch School After School Program was developed and designed to provide greater continuity of childcare after school hours. As in all Antioch School endeavors, the children and their needs are the reason for the program. The main effort of the program is directed toward sustaining an environment that generates a sense of completeness, self-responsibility and fulfillment for the children.

The After School Group meets on regular school days during the school year. On any day when school is cancelled due to snow or bad weather, After School Group is also cancelled.

Designed to accommodate up to twelve children on a daily basis, the group meets when school lets out at 3:00pm. Children must be picked up no later than 5:45pm.


Mia Bates - After-School Group

I’ve always found myself in unconventional schools, with the Antioch School being my very first. My family moved to Tucson. Arizona when I was 8 and I spent my most formative years in the desert surrounded by amazing teachers who supported my need for independence and encouraged me to be curious and to keep asking questions.

I moved back to Yellow Springs in 2016 to attend Antioch College, where I was given the opportunity to be the Antioch School Miller Fellow. After that, I spent time in the Nursery as Ann’s assistant for the end of the 2018/2019 school year and in 2021 I returned to the Antioch School to be the YG assistant. I love being in a space that gives so much freedom to explore and encourages authenticity, and I feel really lucky to be able to spend more time here as my role expands into the Aftercare program this year!
