Before and After Care

  • Our mission is to provide students with an inclusive child care program that is safe and nurturing in a comfortable environment. A culturally enriching program that promotes the physical, intellectual, emotional and social development of each child; and a program that meets the highest quality of child care standards.

    As we move through the summer, we wanted to send you some information about registering for Panther Academy in the 2023-2024 school year.

    Registration for returning parents will open on Wednesday, July 19, 2023.
    This priority registration period is open from July 19-21, 2023 and will be exclusive to returning families from the 2023-2024 school year. Please ensure that you register during these dates as I will be unable to guarantee a spot for returning students after July 24, 2023, when registration is then opened to all students.

    Registration for new students will open on Monday, July 24, 2023.

    To register your child, you will complete the following steps.

    1. Go to
    2. Click the yellow banner that says “Registration for Before and After School Child Care- Click Here”
    3. Where it says “schools” find and select Sawgrass Elementary This will not be available until July 19, 2023. 
    4. Once you see Sawgrass listed, click on the blue paper and pencil icon on the far right. 
    5. This will then take you to the registration page. You must complete a registration for each child. 

    Please note that no payments need to be made until your application is accepted.

    Once approved, payments should consist of the one-time $30 registration fee, the full period fee, and the $10 activity fee. I will be unable to accept and enroll students whose fees have not been paid prior to the start of the program and school year, so please plan accordingly.
