    REMEMBER, ALL payments must be made prior to the start of the payment period.

    If payment is not made by the LAST DAY to pay, the child is withdrawn from the program and a re-registration fee must be paid to re-enter program. All late pick up fees MUST be paid BEFORE the next payment attendance period. If not paid, the fees will become an obligation attached to student’s financial records.

  • Prompt tuition payment and prompt pick up by 6:00 p.m.is the responsibility of the parent.

    All students begin a two-week trial period upon entering the program. If the program cannot meet the student's needs, then the student may be withdrawn.

     

    All county After Care responsibilities end at 6:00 p.m. There will be a late fee of $15.00 for 15 minutes or each additional portion (per child). If your child is still here after 6:30 p.m. and we have not been able to reach anyone at home, work, or at the emergency numbers, the Pembroke Pines Police Department will be notified. The pick up time is established by the Broward County School Board and MUST be strictly followed.

    The third late pick up will result in an administrative review and may be cause for dismissal from the program.

    Tuition is due on or before the date provided on the tuition sheet. School Board Policy requires that a child must be registered and required fees must be paid before he/she can attend the After Care Program.

    Failure to make payment on time will result in the dismissal of your child/children from the After Care Program.

    If payment is not made by the due date, the child is withdrawn from the program and a re-registration fee must be paid to re-enter the program.

    It operates only on days when school is in session. There will be NO After Care provided on days that students are not in school. This includes teacher workdays and holidays.

    After Care is open from dismissal time at 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. on school days. On “early release” days, after care begins at 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

    Goals

    The goal of our After Care Program is to serve the community by offering a high quality after school child care 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 the community.

    Our After Care Program provides professional care, supervision, recreational and educational activities. This program allows children to experience activities within an environment planned to compliment the philosophy and value system of the school and family.  We strive to provide individual attention, security, consistency, and fair treatment form children and working parents.

    The after Care Program is staffed by employees of the School Board of Broward County. Many are on staff during regular school hours and work with your children during the regular school day. All staff members have been fingerprinted and cleared to work for the Broward County School system.

    We work together to help each child grow in maturity and self-respect and understanding for others is realized. We also understand that children need fun-filled activities as well as educational ones.

    Behavior Expectations

    As member of our program, children will be expected to respect the staff, each other, the school facilities and the materials provided.

    In order to maintain a professional atmosphere and to foster proper respect for authority, we ask that the staff members be formally addressed as adults, i.e., Mr., Mrs., and Miss. The informal use of a staff member’s name by a student is inappropriate at any time.

    If/when items are broken or taken, the parents of the child at fault will be responsible for replacing them.

    Children must never leave their group without permission of the counselor in charge. Children found “roaming” school grounds will be reprimanded appropriately.

    Improper behavior of children will result in parent contact by the ASC Supervisor. Counselors will notify the After Care Office of a child’s inappropriate behavior. The After Care director will fill out a conference form and discuss behavior and possible solutions with the parent. The parent will sign the conference form. If problems continue the student may possibly be removed from the After Care Program.

    Attendance

    If you know in advance that your child/children will be absent form the After Care Program for any extended amount of time, please notify us in writing.

    If your child was marked “present” in the classroom, we expect him/her to attend the After Care Program unless advised by you via phone. - We take attendance everyday by 2:15 p.m. to ensure that all children arrived in After Care safely.

    Much concern is expressed and valuable time wasted by searching for a child who went home early with a parent or friend. If a child does not arrive in After Care by attendance time, we immediately check with the regular school office and then the classroom teacher for information as to the whereabouts of a child.

    Dismissal

    At 2:00 p.m., the regular classroom teacher will dismiss the students. Those enrolled in After Care should proceed directly to their assigned meeting area. Kindergarten teachers will escort Kindergarten students to their meeting area.

    Authorized persons will come to the After Care Office located in the single point of entry to sign out the students. All persons signing out children need to show picture I.D.

    Only those persons listed on the registration form will be allowed to pick up your child from the After Care Program.

    Emergency

    With the safety and well being of the children in mind, it is MOST important that parents fill out the emergency sheet and adhere to the guidelines. Parents are urged to provide us with current telephone numbers and a list of authorized persons in case of emergencies.

    Be sure to keep your contact numbers up to date. If we need to reach you, we need valid telephone numbers.

    One of the most important regulations of the After Care Program concerns the child leaving the premises. Parents may not take their children home without notifying the After Care office and signing the child out.
