Elementary and Preschool Child Care

We believe children should have quality child care in a warm, nurturing and safe environment. Our Child Care Program is designed to enrich children with social, physical and educational experiences that will help further develop them as students and as individuals.

Before & After School Care

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

Before and after school care is available at each of our nine elementary schools from 6:30 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.


Preschool Care

Licensed Ages: 2 1/2* thru 12 years
*Must be potty-trained or in the process of training.

  • Stepanski Early Childhood Center & Leggett Child Care offer full day services for preschool children enrolled in a preschool class.


Summer Care

In addition to our school year programs, we also offer an activity-packed, age-appropriate summer session.  All staff members are experienced and well qualified. We look forward to learning and growing with your child!
