The Link realizes there may be a need for extended care on occasion. To help capture those in need we have added the following extended care option:
- Extended Care Hours: 6:30 to 7 pm
- Cost: $3 per day, paid upon arrival
After school care will consist of a variety of activities to keep children engaged and having fun including:
- Arts and crafts
- Board games
- Gym games
- Library trips and events
- Outdoor play
- Video games
On school days students will be provided an afternoon snack option. Students may bring additional snacks from home, but they must be consumed during normal meal times. We highly encourage bringing a reusable water bottle.
The state requires there be 1 adult for every 22 children enrolled in our childcare programs. The Link regularly staffs its programs with a 1:15 ratio, but strives for a 1:12 ratio if possible.
A 7-day written notice is required to cancel after school care. No refunds will be issued once payments are processed.
