You Have a Choice in After School Care.
Glenn's After School program provides the children with a happy and safe environment away from school to do homework, make friends, play and experience fun activities.
Glenn After School Program is an outreach ministry of Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church located on North Decatur Road on the Emory University campus. The program is housed in the Glenn Memorial Youth and Activities Building (YAAB) at 1669 North Decatur Road. We provide transportation from Fernbank Elementary, Mary Lin Elementary, and Springdale Park. Nutritious snacks are provided daily.


Registration Packet



Tuition is $260 per month for one child and $190 per month for each sibling. This is based on an approximate cost of $14.44 per day for the first child and $10.56 per day for each additional sibling, multiplied by the number of school days and divided by 10 months (August through May). We also have a $75 non-refundable registration fee.

About the Program

Glenn's After School Program is for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Our commitment is to provide a caring environment that meets the needs of our community - a program that always has your children as our top priority. Glenn's objective is to involve each child in a small group environment, which allows for the development of:

• Healthy self-esteem
• Good social development
• Self discipline

A highly qualified, mature staff with an average of 12 years teaching experience is in place to provide programming and a variety of age appropriate activities for the children.  Our staff to child ratio is one to eight.
