Spence's Farm afterschool is still accepting students. However, due to higher-than-expected enrollment, we can no longer guarantee pickup from all CHCCS schools. Please contact us before registering for afterschool if you will need us to pick up at your school!

After-School Programs

Our After-School program is designed to give children the opportunity to decompress, learn-by-doing, and have fun. The beautiful, open farm environment helps children feel centered, calm, and happy. They are well-supervised, free to move around outdoors or in, help out in the barn, or just read a book!

We pick up from Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools and follow their school calendar.

From 3:00 to 6:00 each day, students can choose different activities, like work in garden, play in the woods, do crafts, work with the animals, and more! You can also register for our Enrichment Classes in horsemanship and woodworking for an additional fee.

How it Works … You get to decide what works for you! You can sign your child(ren) up for one or more days a week, Monday through Friday! If you need an extra day, just let us know.  

Schedule & Logistics … made easy!   After-School hours are from 3 to 6 pm each day. The farm vans pick up students at their school & drop off at the Farm. You can pick up any time before 6.
