before and after school care
Before-school childcare services are offered at each elementary and magnet school site starting at 7am. Children remain in morning childcare until the school day begins. Students attending the before-school program will be offered a healthy breakfast to start their day.
After-school childcare services are offered at each elementary and magnet school site starting at the end of the school day. Children must be picked up no later than 6pm. Students attending the after-school program will be offered a healthy snack.
The SACC program is designed to provide a before and after school experience that:
- offers families a safe and secure environment for their children outside the regular school day;
- nurtures and promotes the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of children;
- supports each site's School Improvement Plan; and
- promotes life-long learning skills.
Literacy, enrichment, and academic tutoring are integral components of the School Age Childcare program. The program consists of multi-age groups from kindergarten through fifth grade, with children divided into smaller groups according to activity or age. Activities are developmentally appropriate.
Enrollment in SACC does not preclude children from participating in other after-school enrichment programs that include sports, clubs, or activities. However, SACC fees are based on enrollment, not attendance.
