2015-2016 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.
