Hilltop Too – Walt’s Place is home to our ever-growing After School Program. Children from the hilltop neighborhood come to Walt’s Place directly from school to participate in various projects and activities.
Walt’s Place is open during the school year from 3:30 to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. All school-age kids from the Hilltop neighborhood are welcome. Our after school program allows parents to keep working or go to school.
Our program provides a daily snack, homework help with tutors, and social recreation time.
Some of the things we have:
- Many table games
- A computer lab
- Craft projects
- Many more outdoor games
All receive adult mentorship from trained staff and volunteers. We are staffed with work-study students from Valparaiso University and many great volunteers from the community. (Everyone has their background checked.) With many adults and high school students, children have the opportunity to get more one-on-one help with homework. It also allows us to have more areas of our building open each day. (members allowed only in supervised areas)
Hilltop Too – Walt’s Place also offers Summer Program and Summer Food Program from June – August. Hilltop partners with the Valparaiso Community Schools every year to provide a USDA approved free hot meal to each child in our childcare and elementary aged summer program and any child needing a meal during the summer.
Hilltop Too – Walt’s Place Rules:
- Be kind to everyone and everything!
- Be safe and have lots of fun!
- Come check us out!
