We offer After School Childcare at elementary, intermediate and some middle schools in the county.
After School Childcare Programs serve students beginning at age 5 at elementary schools; Middle and High school students may attend at their school campus, if the program is available. All students must attend the After School Childcare Program on the campus of their day school. Busing of students is not an option.
All Registration and payments for the Afterschool Program should be made online. Access our direct link on the BCBE website (bcbe.org); look under Departments; then After School Childcare/ Registration and Payments. Cash is not accepted. Site Manager or designee can assist you at the site, if needed. Payments are due one week in advance of attendance.
Students may participate in the After School Childcare Program on a full-time or daily basis. Non-Refundable Registration fee is $20.00; Full-time students are those who attend the program 3 to 5 days per week; the fee for full-time is $35 weekly. The daily rate of $10.00 per day applies to students that attend one or two days per week. Part-time students may attend only on those days the parents have pre-selected at Registration as attendance days. Grant site rates are less depending on the approved grant.
Parents must select the days when their children will attend at the time of Registration in order to assist the After School Department in ensuring appropriate levels of staffing. Fees are charged based on Registration and are not influenced by attendance. Pre-payment for services is required. The discount for Baldwin County Public School Employees is $25.00 per week per child.
The program operates from 3-5:30 p.m. (or 3 – 6:00 p.m. at select sites) and follows the school calendar. Parents must complete online registration, pay the $20 non-refundable registration fee, and the first week fee - no fewer than two (2) days prior to the first day of attendance in the program. Payments are made online. Payments not made by Friday close of day are subject to late fee.
