What to Know about PCH Afternoon Classes:

The Purchase Community House provides a drop-in center and afternoon classes for the children of Purchase and surrounding communities from mid-September through mid-May. To participate in the drop-in center or afternoon classes, an annual After School Program Membership fee must be paid. An Emergency Contact Form and Release Form is also required for each family. Those forms can now be submitted automatically while signing up for Membership online. Once the After School Program Membership fee is paid, the child's name is added to our sign-in list. Each child is required to sign in and out each day.

Exciting Afternoon Classes ranging from sports to crafts to cooking and more are offered in Fall, Winter and Spring Terms of 7 sessions each for an additional fee. Descriptions of the current term's classes are listed below. Registration for classes and drop-in is accepted in person at the Purchase Community House on or after the opening registration date for each term.

Parents are responsible for arranging their child's transportation to and from the Purchase Community House after school. J & R Tours offers a 24 passenger mini-bus to transport children from the Purchase School to the PCH for a fee. You can find more information about the bus here.
