Aftercare & Vacation Care

Aftercare is available Monday through Friday on a contracted or drop-in basis (as space allows) until 5:30 p.m.  A discounted rate is available for families who complete a Full Year Contract.  Drop-in rate is $11/hour.  Aftercare forms are available on the DWS Blackbaud Portal.
 

Junebug Aftercare (Preschool & Kindergarten)

Contracted rate: $8/hour , DROP IN RATE: $11/HR

The licensed June Bug Aftercare Program runs from 12:45 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. on a daily basis in the kindergarten and preschool classrooms and playgrounds. Each child who participates in the Aftercare program is asked to lie quietly for the first portion of the program so as to provide them with the benefits of a quiet resting time and to minimize disturbances for any nappers. If children fall asleep, they are allowed to follow their own sleep schedule and are gently awakened at 3:00 p.m. A healthy snack is offered to all children upon waking up from their rest period. When they wake up or after story time, the children engage in indoor and outdoor free play. At 3:30 pm, the children from both the kindergarten and preschool Aftercare programs combine. Afternoon arts and crafts activities are available for those children who are interested.  

We ask that parents do not pick up their children before 3:00 pm so as not to disturb the children at rest.

Sunflower Aftercare (Grades 1 - 4)

Contracted rate: $8/hour, DROP IN RATE: $11/HR

The Sunflower Program is available from dismissal until 5:30 p.m. on school days. Our Aftercare program is intentionally designed as a “breathing out” time for the children after their busy school days. Therefore, supervised play and free choice activities are offered as opposed to structured group activities requiring participation. Crafts, reading, homework, building, and game options are available by child choice. Pick up can occur anytime before 5:30 pm with billing calculated using quarter-hour increments.
