Before and After School Childcare - Den Club

The Dysart Unified School District Community Education Department is proud to offer Den Club, our innovative before and after school care program.  Through this program, students K-8 are able to learn and interact in a safe, caring environment.  Under the supervision of trained adults, the children engage in a variety of activities specifically designed to improve their social interaction skills and promote cognitive and emotional development.


Den Club is offered Monday through Friday at eleven (11) elementary schools throughout the district. A Den Club team member will open the school doors at 6:00 am to welcome children in the morning.  The morning program will remain open until the gates open at each campus.  The afternoon session will begin when school dismisses and remain open until 6:00 pm.  All Den Club programs close promptly at 6:00 pm.

Breakfast can be purchased in the school cafeteria every morning. We recommend that children participating in the morning program take advantage of this service. An afternoon snack is served daily to each child.


Den Club team members will allocate time for children to do their homework and provide a supervised place for students to work and study each day. It is the child's responsibility to take advantage of homework time and ask for assistance if needed.


Den Club programs operate year-round and offer services during school breaks. Selected Den Club Camps will be held during school recesses for an additional fee.

Break Camps

Dysart offers childcare camps for all seasons when school is not in session for fall, winter, spring, and summer academic breaks.  Students enjoy a wide variety of fun-filled, educational and physical activities. Please visit our Break Camps page for more information.

Schedule Options

There are many different options for your students in our before and after care programs. You can choose to enroll your child either 4 days a week or 5 days a week with the option of both morning and afternoon, mornings only, or afternoons only. You can also choose to enroll your child on early release Mondays only.


Fees are based on annual enrollment and are payable in ten equal monthly installments. Monthly payments are due the first of each month, August through May. Early release afternoons are included if it is the student's regularly scheduled PM day. Otherwise, the additional rate applies. If families have more than one child enrolled in the program, discounted rates apply. A per family non-refundable registration fee of $50 and the first month's payment is due with the registration paperwork. Please view the handbook for rates and additional information.


Den Club registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis. In order for the registration process to be complete, you must provide a copy of the child’s immunization record and emergency contacts at the time of enrollment. Incomplete documents will not be accepted and will delay enrollment into the Den Club program. 

All registrants may anticipate up to a 3-day waiting period prior to attending the program. Your child must be registered at his/her home school before we can allow enrollment. You must register your child at the start of each new school year to attend the Den Club program.
