Child Care Programs

Before and After School Care Programs

Most of the district's elementary and K-8 schools offer on-site childcare during the school year, provided by licensed childcare organizations. These programs serve children ages 5-12. Programs run from 6:30am or 7am until the morning bell and in the afternoon until 6pm.

Spaces in these programs fill up quickly, so register now if you'll need before and after school care. Programs typically runs during late openings, winter and spring break, and in-service days.
