Before & After School Care/Summer

Registration is required every school year as well as every summer.

For the 2023-24 school year, before and after school care is available at each of our nine elementary schools from 6:45 a.m. until school start time and from school dismissal until 6:00 p.m.

All schools provide child care on half days for children enrolled in the program, unless notified of a change by the department.

Enrollment for summer child care will begin 4/4/2023. Enrollment for the 2023-24 school year child care will begin in July 2023. Our goal is to serve all families needing child care, without utilizing a waitlist. Please check back for the latest information.
