About Third Base

Third Base is an afterschool program available to elementary age children in Kanawha County Schools who are in kindergarten through fifth grade. Parents/guardians must complete an enrollment form each year to enroll their children in the program. Children must be enrolled and approved for Third Base before they attend.

The program is located in the school’s multipurpose room or gym and begins immediately after school dismisses. Children must be picked up by 5:40 p.m. (late pick up fees apply after that time). Some Third Base programs serve more than one school. In those cases, children will ride a Kanawha County Schools bus from their home school to the designated Third Base location. A list of locations can be found under the About Us tab, as well as on the enrollment packet cover page and in the Family Handbook.

During Third Base, children will have a healthy snack, followed by up to 30 minutes of supervised homework time. The staff then engage the children in a variety of activities that promote physical, social and emotional development. This includes outside play, games, arts and crafts, and other play centers.

Our staff must be drug tested and submit to a fingerprint background check. They are trained in CPR and First Aid. Third Base Programs are licensed through the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.


Third Base is a private pay program. There is a weekly fee which is due the first day of each week your child attends. The weekly Private Pay rates for 2024-2025 are $70 for 1 child, $100 for 2 children, and $125 for 3 children. There is a yearly $10 family registration fee.

We do accept CONNECT and LINK for those families who qualify for that program through WV DHHR, and any co-pays associated with that are also due on Monday or the first day of the week you child attends. We must have a copy of your certificate or a notice of coverage before your child starts, unless you opt to start as Private Pay until your coverage is confirmed.

Fees or copays not paid on the first day due are subject to daily late payment fees. If fees or copays are not paid by the end of the week, the child cannot return to the program until the account is paid in full.

When your enrollment has been approved and you are told that your child may start the program, a $10 family registration fee will be billed to your Third Base account and payment will be due the first day your child/children attends. CONNECT/LINK do not cover this fee.

We accept cash, checks (made payable to KCSCEP) and credit/debit cards. We also offer automatic payments through Tuition Express. Your payment can be automatically deducted from your checking account or charged to a credit card. A Tuition Express enrollment form is included in the enrollment packet or can be downloaded separately.  A voided check or other bank documentation must be attached for the ACH option.
