Before and After School Care is available for WCA students in Preschool–6th grade. Before School Care (7am–8:10am) is provided in the cafeteria of the main building and includes supervised time for play and/or homework. After School Care (3:10–6:00pm) is provided in the Early Learning Center building and offers additional outdoor play, snack, indoor free play, and a time for homework for the older grades.
WCA Preschool through 6th grade students may use Before and After Care on an “as needed” drop-in basis, provided space is available. You must register (see below) once per school year if you plan to use drop-in care. This can be done at the beginning of the school year or at any time, if the need arises. If you are planning to have your child drop-in for extended care, advance notification is appreciated. Please call the office at (847) 548–6209.
Please Note: Before and After School Care is not available for teacher in-service days, holidays, or spring and Christmas vacations. On half-days, Before Care is available, but not After Care.
Annual enrollment in WCA Before and After School Care is required and based on a first come / first serve basis. Extended care is billed at the same frequency as tuition. Annual tuition payers will be charged a one-time annual cost for Extended Care. Monthly tuition payers will have Extended Care added to their payments for Sept–May via your FACTS account. Drop-in charges are billed once a month. Please use the form below to register for extended care.
