    GOAL:

    The goal of our after school care program ("AfterCare") is to serve the community by offering a high quality program of developmentally appropriate activities in a wholesome and safe environment.

    The program promotes the physical, intellectual, emotional and social development of each child.  We encourage our students to become life-long learners and foster partnerships with parents, students, staff and community.

    AfterCare is staffed by employees of the School Board of Broward County, who have all ben fingerprinted and cleared to work for the Broward County School system.  Staff work together to help each child grow in maturity and self-respect, as well as an understanding for others.  We realize that children need fun-filled, as well as educational, activities.

     

    HOURS OF OPERATION:

    AfterCare runs from 2:00p.m. until 6:00 p.m.  (Except on Early Release Days when AfterCare starts at noon when school is let out.)  AfterCare operates only on days when school is in session. there is no care offered at this time for Employee Planning Days or holidays.

     

    FEES:

    There is a one-time, family registration fee of $25.00.  There are ten periods during the school year, and the fee for each period is $194.  There is also a $5.00 activity fee, which is charged every period.  there is a 5% discount for SBBC employees or each additional child registered in the program.

    BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS:

    Students in our program are expected to respect the staff, each other, the School's facilities and all provided materials.

    Unacceptable behavior may necessitate a conference with the Program's Supervisor.  The student's behavior and possible solutions will be discussed with the parent.  If behavior problems continue, a student may be removed from the Program.

     

    ATTENDANCE:

    Please let the Program's supervisor know in advance when your chld will not be attending AfterCare.  If your child was marked "present" in the classroom, we expect him/her to attend AfterCare.  If your child was absent from school, you do not need to notify the Supervisor.  You may call the School and leave a message for the Supervisors.  If a child is absent from AfterCare, but was present during the day, and AfterCare has not received word from the parent, the parent will be contacted by 2:30 p.m. to verify that the child is safe.
