Before & After School Programs
Perfect Solution for Working Parents
The hours before and after a child’s school day may be few, but they present an enormous challenge in terms of finding safe, stimulating and affordable supervision of children. St. Charles Park District offers programs for students in grades K-5 with fun activities, healthy snacks and professional staff leaders at reasonable rates.
When mom and dad have to hit the road for work before their children have to hit the books, there are few options available to parents for safe, supervised yet entertaining early morning care. Before the Bell offers morning care that lets children ease into their day with breakfast foods and quiet activities, and allows mom and dad to head off to work knowing that their child is enjoying a secure and stimulating environment. This program is held at select school sites.
Working parents face all sorts of challenges, and most adults work later than when school lets out. What do you do when your kids are done for the school day and you are still at work? What if there is a day or days off of school? Baker Station is a partnership between the Park District and Community Unit School District 303 to provide after school care at school sites.
No School Days
Holiday breaks from school bring happiness to students, but they can mean headaches for working parents. As much as mom and dad might like to take a break from work and hang out with the kiddos, duty calls. So what to do to make sure their school-age children are active and entertained when they can’t stay home alone.
Due to strict maximum participant guidelines, No School Days are no longer included in the 5-day Baker Station fee. All No School Day participants must register separately for No School Day options. These days will be held at Haines Gymnasium, 305 S. 9th Street. All participants from different schools will be combined at this site.
