Before and After School Childcare

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, school age children in grades K-6 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.  

Registration for the 2017-2018 school year is open. We now have a new, more convenient, user-friendly system that offers online registration.Boy Smiling

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. 

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 including swimming, movies, arts & crafts, science projects, game trucks, bowling, field trips, and more.  This year's Winter Camp will feature several innovative fun-filled activities encompassed around the exciting theme of Inventor's Workshop and Winter Weather Discovery.  

Winter Camp will be held December 26-29, 2017, and January 2-5, 2018, from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm at Parkview Elementary located at 16066 North Parkview Place in Surprise, Arizona.  Visit our "Camps" webpage for instructions on how to register for Winter Camp.  Registration opens Monday, November 20, 2017.
