2014-2015 Before and After School Program
Our purpose for this program is to provide quality care for Rockford children, and to enhance children's physical, intellectual, social and emotional development. We also want to recognize and encourage individual interests and talents, and promote the school as a safe, secure and stimulating place.
In order to assure that both parents and children adjust as quickly and happily as possible to the BAC Program, and to prevent any misunderstandings, we ask that all parents and guardians carefully read all of the information within the BAC website. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us at the Child Care Services office, 616.863.6560. The office is open Monday-Friday from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, and open limited hours on district no school days. There is a 24 hour voice message system available as well.
This program is for school-aged children in developmental kindergarten through fifth grade and is available every day at each elementary school from 7:00 to 8:30 am and 3:30 to 6:00 pm. The cost will be $6.00 per day per child for the morning session and $9.00 per day per child for the afternoon session. A $25.00 non-refundable family registration fee is due at the time of enrollment. There is no sibling discount.
Enrollment is available throughout the school year. Children are given opportunities to participate in games, arts, crafts, literacy, homework, and outside and/or gym time. A snack is provided after school each day. On scheduled non-school half days, care is available at your BAC site; extra sign-up is required to attend. Our program is also available at the Administration Building on scheduled non-school full days such as in-service days and some holiday breaks. Email registration is required to attend. Please refer to the Announcement Link at the left for specific sign-up days and times.
With the exception of the start of school, children can start attending BAC 48 hours after the completed paperwork and the family registration fee has been received in the Preschool and Child Care office.
