Before and After School Care Program

The Open Door, Before and After School Care Program, provides supervised care for children in grades K-5 before and after school. The program offers children a safe, comfortable environment where they can learn, build appropriate social skills and relax. The highly qualified child care staff provide an array of activities, field trips, crafts, creative play, supervised games and unstructured play times as well as homework assistance and an after school snack.

The Open Door program is located at Appleview Elementary School. Hours of operation are from 6:30-8:00a.m. and 3:00-6:00p.m. There is no before or after school care on the days school is not in session.

Ridgeview Elementary students are shuttled from Appleview Elementary School to Central before school starts for the day. At the end of their school day, Ridgeview students enrolled in the Open Door are shuttled back to Appleview Elementary School.

A $30 non-refundable registration fee plus the first two weeks child care payment are due upon enrollment. Billing is bi-weekly. Fees are as follows: Morning care, $5 for first child, $4.50 per additional sibling. Afternoon care, $9.50 for first child, $9 per additional sibling. Tuition is charged on the basis of enrollment, not attendance.
