Child care: before and after school

  • Before and after-school programs provide care and enrichment for students outside of normal school hours while parents or guardians are at work. The programs are designed to help children succeed academically and socially in a safe environment.


    A variety of programs and locations are available. Check with your child’s school for additional ASD-sponsored activities that may be offered.
