Our after-school program is open from 2 pm to 6 pm every day of the school year, except as noted below for special days. On regular school days, the kids have a snack and a mandatory hour of homework time, during which our after school teachers are available to provide homework assistance as needed. Children without homework will engage in quiet activities during that time. Once homework time is over, the kids will head outside for sports and games, weather permitting or will participate in fun activities inside the building.
Schedule and Pricing for Special School Days:
TEACHER WORK DAYS / HOLIDAYS: We are open on all teacher work days, and most school holidays from 7 am to 6 pm. Don't forget to pack lunch for your child. The extra fee per full time enrolled child is $10, and the fee per drop-in child is $35.
***PLEASE REVIEW OUR INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICIES:***
EARLY DISMISSAL DAYS: We are open from 11 am (or earlier) to 6 pm on all early dismissal days, and will pick up the kids up from school at the earlier time. Please make sure you send a lunch with your child. There is an extra $5 dollar fee per full time enrolled child, and the fee per drop-in child is $20.
SNOW DAYS: Whenever Union County Public Schools are closed due to snow, WE WILL BE OPEN from 7 am to 6 pm! Remember to have your child dressed warmly for outside snow play, and don't forget to send a lunch. The extra fee per full time enrolled child is $10, and the fee per drop-in child is $35. PLEASE NOTE: if no children arrive at the building by 10 AM, then we will be closed for the day.
TWO HOUR DELAYED OPENING DAYS: WE ARE NOT OPEN for two hour delayed opening days, and therefore do not provide before care nor transportation to the schools in the morning.
