Flamingo Afterschool Academy
Mission Statement: "To ensure your child has a safe and fun afternoon filled with learning, physical activities, and socialization."
FLAMINGO ACADEMY... Our Exciting Aftercare Program
Your child will have the opportunity to participate in our on-campus academic enrichment program. The program runs daily from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on early release days from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. We encourage you to come in and tour our program to see how hard we work everyday to ensure our mission is fulfilled. We know deciding who will care for your child is an important decision. Call us today, so we can help you.
At Flamingo Academy, you will know your child is safe and secure at all times with 20 students or less per group.
The cost of our after school academic/enrichment program is $190.00 per period ($183.00 District child care fee and $7.00 school-based activity fee). There is a registration fee of $25.00 per family for new and expired enrollments. Fees are paid by the month and must be paid on or before the payment deadline to avoid a new $25.00 registration fee (per family). Snack and Early Release Day activities are included at no additional cost! Now you can pay for aftercare online at your convenience.

The difference between our program and other "daycare" based programs......
- The children are grouped by age and participate in academic reteach and enrichment activities specific to their grade-level skills.
- Your child does not have to be transported daily by bus to an off-campus location. Many times daycare buses pick up at multiple schools and it may take 40 minutes for your child to get off the bus.
- If you are approved for free or reduced lunch, you can apply for a scholarship that can reduce your monthly payment by up to 50%. To be considered for a scholarship, you must have been approved for free or reduced lunch. Apply online at www.applyforlunch.com.
The monthly payment of $190 ($183.00 District child care fee and $7.00 school-based activity fee) will be collected by period. In addition, the yearly registration fee is $25.00.
