Silver Palms Elementary School
Before and After-School Child Care Program
2023-24


Silver Palms Elementary is proud to offer a high quality, fee-based before and after-school child-care program for the students who attend our school. On behalf of our aftercare team, we are very excited for our upcoming school year.

Our philosophy is to provide all students with an academic/fitness-based program, in a safe and nurturing environment and to teach students appropriate social skills, including conflict resolution and acceptable peer interaction.

We provide students with snack time, a structured homework hour, drama class, technology, S (science) T (technology) E (engineering) M (math) center, Spanish class, arts and crafts, and outdoor play.

Currently, all our experienced counselors are attending college and have been trained in Anti-bullying, CPR/First Aid, behavior management and conflict resolution, assorted group activities and emergency situations. All staff has received a thorough FBI background clearance through Broward County Public Schools.

Program Information

Our program abides by Broward County Public Schools Code of Conduct. We follow the same rules pertaining to cell phones, medication dispensing, bullying and behavior conduct. Our students are expected to behave in the same manner they would in the classroom and to treat their counselor and peers with kindness and respect.

If your child has Special Needs (an IEP, a 504 plan, or medical issues), please let us know before you register. We are required to have a meeting to make sure our program can meet their needs.

Payment information:

The non-refundable registration fee ($30.00 per child) will be collected for the 2023-2024 school year. The activity fee is $15.00, which pays for the student’s snack and early release activities.

As of this school year, there will be 10 payment periods. Payments will be collected every 18 school days. Our current prices are $214 per pay period for aftercare full fee and the before-care fee is $53.00 per pay period. However, payments will be changing for the new school year. If a parent/guardian forgets to make a payment, they will be charged an additional $30.00 re-registration fee PER CHILD. (Late fee)

Please call the school office at 754-323-7465 or email me at Julie.cepeda@browardschools.com with any questions or concerns.
