Tigers' Den Extended Day Program provides high quality, before and after school care in an enriching atmosphere with supervision by a professional, caring staff. Tigers' Den is a non-profit self-supporting program that is administered by the Littleton Public School Department. Tigers' Den sites are located at the Russell Street School and the Shaker Lane School.
Children enrolled in the Littleton Public Schools from Kindergarten through grade five may attend on a space available basis. Tigers' Den doesn't discriminate based on race, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
The program schedule follows the school year calendar of 180 days. Care is not provided on holidays, during school vacations or on days that school is closed unexpectedly due to weather, facility and/or COVID 19 issues.
Tigers' Den is designed to meet the individual needs of its participants by allowing them to the opportunity to schedule their own activities. Many different choices are available each day. Indoor activities may include arts and crafts, games, science projects, computer exploration for free choice from the games and materials available. Outdoors, children may participate in hikes, group games or free choice on the playground. These activities may be offered to small groups of the same age children, or to a more general grouping of diverse ages. As the children advance to higher grade levels, Tigers' Den provides choices that are more age appropriate and satisfying to their expanding interests. Children are supervised at all times by adult staff members.
The before school program is held at the Russell Street School site from 7:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. 3rd grade through 5th grade will be dismissed directly to the Russell Street School and Kindergarten through 2nd grade will take the bus to the Shaker Lane School to start their acedemic day.
The after school program is held at the Russell Street School from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. At dismissal, Kindergarten through 2nd grade will take the bus from Shaker Lane to the Russell Street School. 3rd through 5th grade will be dismissed from school and come down directly to the Tigers' Den program area.
