• Extended Day sites

    Before and after school Extended Day programs are offered at all 10 district elementary schools. The Extended Day program offers students a safe, positive, nurturing and a growth oriented environment. The staffing design includes lead and assistant staff members who provide a ratio of approximately 18:1. We include a healthy mix of recreation, academic enrichment, and cultral experiences, to foster social-emotional development and support to each child that we serve.

    Extended Care on Early Release and Staff Work Days

    This year after care on Early Release Days will only be available to students who are currently enrolled in Children's Center after care programs. This change in programming was made last spring in order to ensure safe ratios and group sizes at every site. 

    The Children's Center will continue to offer care to all program and non-program students on all eight Staff Work Days, beginning on the first of the year, October 13th, as well as 5 days during Winter Break and all of MidWinter Break and Spring Breaks. 

    These programs will take place at our new temporary site, North City at  816 NE 190th St.
