Wrap Program

What is Wrap Around Anyway?  Need a longer Day? 

Wrap or WrapAround is a term used because this program provides extra hours for families that need services beyond the traditional school day and during the summer. The services provided wraps around either the school day or the school year. There are several types of WrapAround Services offered:

  • Before Care
  • After Care (Various Schedules)
  • Summer Enrichment  

Before and After Care Programs

These services are available on a fee for service or voucher basis to fill out your child’s day. 

Our WrapAround Program has four fees: 

  • Registration Fee
  • Monthly Fee for Before and After Care during the school year
  • Weekly Fee (applicable only during public school break weeks)
  • Summer Wrap Around Fee

Payments are based on a sliding fee scaled based on a family's annual gross income. 

The Before and After Program

The Before and After Care Program operates on school days to give busy parents additional timeframes for the care of their children. We offer a safe, reliable, familiar and a fun filled before and aftercare program. Activities are planned based on the interests of the children in the group and, therefore, vary from site to site. 

In past years activities have included: music, art, a variety of gym activities, sign language, science projects, Spanish as a second language.  Activities reflect seasons and current events.

Our staff consists of experienced Professionals along with students enrolled in programs and/or colleges in the area of Early Childhood Education and Childcare. 

We encourage and invite you to reach out to our families past or present to ask what their child’s experience was with our before and aftercare programs.

These services are available on a fee for service or voucher basis in order to assist parents who need longer child child care services. 

  • Before care is a great way for parents to get to work early or on time! Mile Square opens 7:30am to 8:30am. Our staff is welcoming and creative to help make a smooth transition for those parents that are working on a timely fashion.
     
  • After care makes it easy for those parents that have to work past 2:30pm or just need that extra hour to complete some chores. Its creative, fun, and most of all relaxed. This time allows children to explore using their own creativity.
