After the Bell
This program operates from the time school is out
for the day until 6:30 p.m. The program allows parents to leave
their children at school until their work/school day is done. They
have the piece of mind that the children are taken care of in a
safe environment. We offer the children a snack, we encourage them
to do any homework that they may have gotten from the school day,
offer board games, arts and crafts, computer games with an educational
connotation, games to refine fine motor skill as well as large
motor skills, gym time, outdoor activities, watch videos, etc.
We are licensed by the State of Michigan and follow their requirements
for safety, staffing and first aid. Parents pay a fee of $6 per
day, per child, for free or reduced lunch recipients or $10 per
day, per child, for students that pay full lunch. This program
is offered beginning the first day of school and operates through
the last day of school. It is also available during conferences.
