Our parents and families lead very busy lives. It is our hope that with Beforecare and Aftercare, we can provide meaningful assistance in rearing strong, confident, and joyful children.

Beforecare is provided from 7:30 am to 8:40 am. The drop-off time is no earlier than 7:30 am. If the school day is delayed (e.g. inclement weather), the opening of Beforecare is also delayed. During Before Care, students will have the opportunity to do homework, study for a test, read, or engage in quiet play. At 8:00 am, milk and a snack will be provided. The cost for Before Care for 2021/2022 is $170 per month for students attending Beforecare more than ten days per month and $13 per day for students who attend Beforecare ten or fewer days per month.

Aftercare is available for all full-time students from dismissal until 6:00 pm. Students will receive a snack, engage in playtime, and have the opportunity to complete homework.  Our goal is to provide active play after a long school day, utilizing our outdoor play spaces, as well as our new state-of-the-art gymnasium. Typical activities include soccer, touch football, basketball, floor hockey, four square, kickball, jump rope, rock-wall climbing, and as many outdoor activities as the weather will permit.  Our study hall is supervised by State Certified teachers and an adult who is fluent in Spanish. All of our staff is certified in CPR, First Aid, and Shield the Vulnerable Certification.

The cost for aftercare for 2021/2022 is $235 per month for students attending Aftercare more than ten days per month and $18 per day for students who attend Aftercare ten or fewer days per month. There is an additional fee for Aftercare on early dismissal days. Please consult the Student-Parent Handbook for more information.
