Announced today, Jan. 11, Noblesville Schools will be launching a new, onsite, before-and-after-school service next year, in January 2018.

The new program, Miller Explorers, will replace services currently offered at all Noblesville elementary schools by Indianapolis-based provider AYS.

“The program will be run by Noblesville Schools and will provide a variety of learning, physical and social activities for students before and after school that are aligned with the district’s Miller Shift innovative learning culture,” the district stated in a press release. “It will offer parents the same schedule flexibility and cost structure of the current AYS program.”

“The Miller Explorers program is a great opportunity for us to expand our innovative culture to create a better connection between before/after school care and our schools,” Supt. Dr. Beth Niedermeyer stated. “We plan to take advantage of our educational expertise, our relationships with students and our strength in professional staff development to align before/after school care with our curriculum.”

Miller Explorers students will be able to take advantage of a variety of options like learning games, STEM activities, physical fitness, art, homework assistance and onsite professional lessons.

“This model also helps provide greater financial stability directly to Noblesville Schools rather than an external organization,” Niedermeyer stated. “In the end, that financial stability benefits Noblesville children, parents and residents.”

The district said it will be establishing a committee of elementary parents to provide ongoing input and guidance into the Miller Explorers program.
