NCE Elementary

Needham Community Education’s NCE Elementary program offers a wide array of after school classes at each elementary school at the end of the school day. Your child won’t want to miss out on the fun!

NCE Elementary offers classes that appeal to every child—past topics have included: coding, performing arts, STEM topics, drawing, animation, 3D Printing, painting, LEGOs, robotics, science, sports and fitness, video game design, martial arts, chess, crafts, foreign language and more! Classes begin at the end of the school day. Students are dismissed to the designated NCE waiting area of their school, where they are supervised by the NCE On-Site Coordinator until their instructor arrives to escort the students to their classroom. Most classes are one-hour long, once a week for 6–10 weeks.

Fall 2021 — Coming Soon!
Fall classes will begin at the start of November and will run through early January. More information about our exciting fall offerings and registration instructions will be shared online, and via email, after the start of school in September. NCE is planning to hold after school classes in person and will adhere to all Covid safety guidelines in place for Needham Public Schools.

NCE Elementary programs are open to all students. Are there special considerations we should know about so that your child will have a positive experience in the program? If so, please list them in the designated areas of the online registration form.
