GETTING FROM WATKINS TO PEABODY  

If your student is enrolled in aftercare at Peabody and you’re considering Flex Academies enrichment programs you may want to explore using the CHAT Van.

Capitol Hill Area Transportation (CHAT), started by a mom on the Hill, takes children from Watkins to Peabody each day after Flex enrichments. CHAT is fully licensed, insured and their drivers go through extensive background checks.

The CHAT van driver will sign kids out with the Flex Academies site Coordinator at Watkins at 4:45 PM. The Driver will walk the kids into Peabody to join Joe’s Den or Rita’s Place activities in progress. Booster seats will be provided for children who need them.

 Cost

One Day a week: $72 for the 8 wk term

Two Days a week: $138 for the 8 wk term

Three Days a week: $200 for the 8 wk term

HOW MANY KIDS CAN THE VAN ACCOMMODATE?

The minimum number of kids per day is 4, the maximum is 6. Therefore, this service would be offered on a first come, first serve basis. We ask parents to commit to this for the full 8-week term of enrichment program on whatever day their child has a class.
