Mission of the Child Care Program

The WCSSSD Aftercare Program at Washington Borough Schools is committed to assist parents after school hours by providing a safe, as well as fun, environment for the children.
• Children from pre-kindergarten to sixth grade will be supervised in a safe environment by adults employed by WCSSSD.
• Children will participate in outdoor/indoor activities.
• A childcare staff member will be available to offer homework assistance.

Program Description

The After Care program is housed in the Taylor Street and Memorial Schools and runs from dismissal to 5:30 pm daily. Parents may send a snack for their child. Daily curriculum activities will vary. Homework assistance will be available, as needed. In addition, students have an opportunity to participate in table games or an indoor/outdoor activity, contingent upon weather and available staff; and view appropriate movies.
