Before and After School Childcare

Girl in a yellow dressThe 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.  

Hours
Den Club is offered at sixteen (16) elementary schools throughout the district Monday through Friday.  A Den Club team member will open the school doors at 6:00 a.m. to welcome children in the mornings.  The morning program will remain open until 30 minutes prior to school starting.  The afternoon session will begin when school dismisses and remain open until 6:00 p.m.  All Den Club programs close promptly at 6:00 p.m.

Snacks/Breakfast
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.

Homework
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.
