WPC staff consists of seasoned, adult site directors who are supported by an energetic college and high school age staff—both directors and staff are CPR and First Aid certified. Excellent communication between the WPC team and Westford's school staff supports your child's academic, social, and emotional development. 

The WPC program encompasses a range of activities, including home work help, science exploration, math, technology, storytelling, visual arts, crafts, sports, and games. There are five sessions throughout the school year with new activities added in each session.
