Before and/or After School Programs are available at most of our Community Centers. See list below to find programs (Before and/or After School) available at the Community Center nearest you. The Before School Program normally starts at 7:30am and runs until school starts; school start times may vary from school to school. The After School Program starts at all community centers when school is released and continues until 5:30pm. Children in Kindergarten (must have proof) through age 15 are eligible to attend these programs, but space is limited. For additional information contact the nearest Community Center in your area.
Registration is held on an ongoing basis at all Community Centers, but space is limited. If there is no space available, you can place your child's name on a waiting list. A completed registration form is required on each child that attends the program. For safety reasons, a child will not be allowed to participate in the program if the parent or guardian has not submitted a completed registration form.
