What is Mathews Fun Club? MFC is an entirely self-supported, campus-based after school child care program at Mathews Elementary. We strive to provide a caring and nurturing program of supervised enrichment and recreational activities for Mathews students, Pre-K through 6th grade, from 2:57pm to 6:00pm each school day. On our two staff development/parent-teacher conference days, child care is available from 7:30am to 5:00pm.

The afternoon starts with a light snack followed by activities including, but not limited to, homework, arts and craft, free play, non-competitive sports, and computer time.
