Year Round Youth Programs


WAW! Afterschool & 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 serve kids K-4th grade, every Wednesday 2-4pm. Through island residencies, Waterman's is also able to help introduce, cultivate, and support a love for the arts featuring kid-friendly collaborations with local artists and experts.


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, a movie, and dessert. Consistent opportunities to socialize outside of school can be limited. WCC provides a reliable and supervised hang-out making these 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. If you are interested in interning or volunteering at Waterman's, check out our employment page or email us at
