AfterSchool, Before School and Early Release Day Programs
Before School Program: This program provides care for children grades K-5 in the morning before the start of the school day from 7:30am-9:00am in each of the elementary schools. The children have the opportunity to prepare for their school day in a comfortable social setting. Children have time to play games, finish homework, read and play outdoors. Before School does not operate on days when school is not in session or when there is a delayed opening for the school.
AfterSchool Program: This program provides care for children in grades K-5 every day in each of the three elementary schools (from 3:20pm-6:00pm) each day and 12:20pm-6:00pm on Early Release days). A two day minimum is required for our program. The daily schedule at each site includes supervised indoor and (lots of) outdoor play. Activities are based on children’s interests and each day includes a short homework/reading period. We follow the Concord School calendar and do not provide care on days that school is not in session. Concord Rec often provides alternative programming on these days.
Early Release Day Program: This program is for those families only needing care on Concord’s weekly early release day for grades K-5. (Families who are part of the AfterSchool Program do not need to sign up for this program but instead sign up for the early release day as one of their AfterSchool days). The children are bused from each of the three elementary schools to the Hunt Recreation Center for this program and pick up is by 6:00pm. Our daily schedule includes lots of outdoor play as well as indoor play, arts and crafts, science activities and time for socializing.
All of our Childcare Services Programs across all age groups value diversity and are committed to creating welcoming childcare settings. Our programs welcome families and children with a wide variety of experiences, identifications and abilities, along with a variety of racial, ethnic, family, religious, economic and cultural backgrounds. We work to instill a genuine appreciation of and respect for others. By appreciating individual differences, we encourage children and their families to value the richness and importance of a diverse community and to support a culture of belonging.
