After School Programs

The City of Hialeah's Education and Community Services Department offers a wide variety of afterschool programs for both residents and non-residents. Students in our programs are closely supervised by trained staff and engage in fun, yet educational activities that keep the students in our programs learning after the school day has ended. Parents can have peace of mind knowing that their children and teens are in a safe and welcoming environment after the school bell rings!


The Creative Learning and Play (CL&P) Afterschool programs are held for students ages 5-14 at ten convenient locations throughout the city. The camp includes literacy activities and tutoring by certified teachers, enrichment activities, and indoor/outdoor games at a low cost price of $15.00 a week per child. Registration for the CL&P Afterschool program is currently being accepted from 9:00 AM-5:00 PM at the Education and Community services office located at 7400 W. 24th Avenue. This program is funded in part by The Children's Trust.

The Young Leaders with Character Afterschool Program (YLC)
Academic Achievers and STEAM Ahead Program serves teens ages 11-18 years old from the following schools: Hialeah Educational Academy, Jose Marti MAST Academy, Hialeah Middle School, Palm Springs Middle School, and Henry H. Filer Middle School. The afterschool programs include academic tutoring by certified teachers, PBL projects, enrichment activities and indoor/outdoor games. Registration for the YLC programs is currently held at each of the site locations from 3:30-5:30 PM. The cost is FREE due to funding from 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC).

The STEP AHEAD Afterschool Program offers FREE afterschool activities for Miami-Dade County Public School (M-DCPS) high school students with special needs.
