After school and Island Residencies
Waterman's is always working to make sure our after school programs meet the needs of island kids and parents. With the new early dismissal on Wednesdays, we have expanded our programing to include middle school. Through residencies and the support of local artists, Waterman's has been able to provide a variety of activities, from a month long course in theater improv with Ryan Jackson to exploring art fundamentals with our own island artist, David Wilson.
Kid's Night Out &
Middle School Night Out
Once a month, Waterman's invites Island kids to take the night off from their parents and join us for dinner, movies, and games. Events are separated based on grade, allowing Waterman's to make space for different interests and maturity. Better yet, the kids love to help and make planning a breeze. From submitting their movie ideas to creating playlists for dance parties, kids' active involvement make these events the best nights of the month!
Internships & Job Opportunities
Waterman's prides itself on giving many North Haven teenagers their first work-place experience. Students interested in studying early childhood education have gained hands on experience and course credits working in our Little Urchins and Sea Stars classes. Our coffee shop interns help keep Waterman's running year round, doing everything from baking to event prep.
