The Garden Home Recreation Center's Discovery Club After-school Program provides children with a fun, safe and active environment to learn, grow and play.
Our program gives kids the opportunity to have fun, learn, and express themselves through a variety of activities, while maintaining a safe environment.
We provide service to students at the following schools: Raleigh Park, Raleigh Hills, Vose, Montclair, McKay and Whitford.
Children will benefit from interaction with other children and instructors in a fun and educational environment. Children will be encouraged to develop talents and recognize their importance, individually and within the community.
Staff members have experience in elementary education, recreation leadership, fine arts and more. Each staff member has First Aid, CPR & AED certification. Before anyone works with the children we complete a criminal background check and staff training session.
Every staff member who drives THPRD vans must be 21 years old. They will have their driving record checked and be trained and approved to operate the vans.
Payment is due by the 15th of each month for the following month's tuition. (example: September's tuition is due on August 15th). Tuition includes five Beaverton School District no school days. (Holidays and conference options available; additional fees apply.)
Discovery Club meets daily, Monday-Friday, from 3-6 pm. (Wednesday early pick-up) Our program helps kids (Kindergarten-5th grade) develop emotionally, socially, intellectually and physically as they make new friends and explore the world.
We offer cultural activities, games, community service, sports, art, dance, music, science projects, fabulous field trips and more.
Vans transport students from Raleigh Park, Raleigh Hills, Vose and McKay elementary schools. Montclair students ride the bus to Garden Home and will be met by a staff member.

Youth Enrichment Program for Whitford Middle School Students (Grades 6-8)
This program is for middle school students who need a safe and positive place to go after school, from 4-6 pm. They will have time for homework, friends, art, sports and field trips. They will also participate in community service projects and other activities.

Homework time is an essential part of the after school program. It includes time to complete assignments and work on academically enriching activities.
During this time, children will be encouraged to complete their assignments. Staff will supervise and assist them. We cannot guarantee that homework is completed or done accurately; parents will still need to review their child’s assignments.
