Before and After School Care

These programs are designed for busy parents with demanding schedules. The before and after school programs are structured to provide relaxed, recreational opportunities to counterbalance the school day's educational activities. Daily programming includes, but is not limited to: Homework help, arts and crafts, athletics, large and small group games, creative play and outdoor activities. No programming on: 9/2/19, 11/28/19, 11/29/19, 12/23/19 - 1/3/20.

Late-starts are included with the Before School program tuition and early-releases/half-days are included with the After School program, when registered for that day of the week. Non-school days are not included in before/after school care tuition. If you need care on any, or all of your child's days off school (including the days before school starts), please register for our School's Out Hang Out (shown below)!

Note: There is no drop-in option for Before/After School Care or School's Out, Hang-Out. All registration changes made after the 14th day of the prior month will incur an additional fee.

  • Full-Year: Pay for the entire year at the time of registration.
  • Monthly: Pay one payment at the time of registration and then monthly automatic withdrawals on the 1st of each subsequent month. *Monthly payments are based on the total number of days in the school year, not the number of days attended in any given month.
