For our Preschoolers
Washington Elementary offers supplementary care for students enrolled in the P.M. preschool only from 8:15 AM until 12:30 PM. If your child attends the AM preschool session there is not a childcare option in the afternoon.
Breakfast and lunch is available to students when they are in attendance during breakfast and lunch times. Anytime a student eats breakfast or lunch the cost is deducted from the student's nutrition account.
It is the goal of this program to provide an enriching and appropriate environment for children ages 4 - 6. Children will benefit from a consistent rhythm of daily activities including snack, rest time, and outdoor play. During their session at Kids Club, children will be offered a variety of learning and play experiences. This includes participation in group stories and songs, “Center Time” for open exploration of art materials, block play, pretend play and other teacher-guided activities.
The program operates during the school year, during most of the scheduled school breaks and in-service days.
