BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Parks and Recreation invites parents to choose our after school program for quality, affordable and convenient after school care. Parks and Recreation is available to all children in Pre-K through Fifth grade. The children can study and play with schoolmates in a child-centered environment.
During our program, students:
- Pursue academic excellence by working on homework and other academically enriching activities
- Develop friendships while studying and playing with schoolmates
- Participate in hands-on, multi-cultural enrichment activities in areas such as arts and crafts, drama, music, and computer projects
- Enjoy a healthy afternoon snack daily
All of our Site Supervisors and Activity Leaders are certified in first aid and CPR. Our staff members work as a team to provide quality care, setting behavior expectations, actively supervising children and building relationships with students and families. Our staff is also required to attend trainings in child development skills.
The army provides fee assistance to the families based on total family income, with discounts generally given to multiple children. Active Army, Active Guard, Reserve soldiers, and Army Civilians are eligible if they are a single parent or their spouse is working or attending school.
