      • 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, and recreational and educational activities.This program allows children to experience activities within an environment planned to complement the philosophy and value system of the school and family.  We strive to provide individual attention, security, consistency, and fair treatment for 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, self-respect and understanding for others. We also understand that children need fun-filled activities as well as educational ones.

      Behavior Expectations

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

        All school rules and regulations also pertain to the before and after care programs. 

        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 the permission of the counselor in charge. Children found “roaming” school grounds will be reprimanded appropriately.

        Improper behavior of children will result in a notice being sent home to the parent. Counselors will notify the After Care Office of a child’s inappropriate behavior by written referrals. 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.


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

        If your child is marked “present” in the classroom, we expect him/her to attend the After Care Program unless advised by you via email. Attendance is taken every day by 4:15 p.m. to ensure that all children arrive in After Care safely.

        Much concern is expressed and valuable time is wasted on 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 the child.

        If your child will be attending any extra-curricular activity and WILL be returning to aftercare when the activity ends, they must sign in with aftercare first. If they do not sign in, we will not know they are on campus and count them as being present in aftrercare. 

        If your child will be attending any extra-curricular activity and WILL NOT be returning to aftercare when the activity ends, they do not need to sign in with aftercare, however, we do need an email from the parent stating the student will not be in aftercare. 


      • At 3:40 p.m., the regular classroom teacher will dismiss the students. Those enrolled in Aftercare should proceed directly to their assigned meeting area. 

        Authorized individuals will come to the Welcome Center to sign out the students and must show a picture I.D. The I.D. must be presented to the camera outside the Welcome Center and to the staff member at the desk inside.

        Only those individuals listed on the registration form will be allowed to pick up your child from the Aftercare Program.


      • 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.
