Before and After School Care Programs

2016-2017 Before & After School Care Programs

Wednesday, February 8, 2017, is a full release day for all students and is a professional development day for all staff.  The Before & After Care programs will be closed on this date so that our staff can attend their training.
IMPORTANT NOTICE:  The following sites are only accepting registrations on a waiting list only due to high demand and the need to acquire additional staffing and/or space:
  • Norterra Canyon
  • Sierra Verde
  • Sonoran Foothills
Registration contracts that are on a waiting list will remain in a pending status until the program re-opens.  If you or someone you know is interested in applying as an instructional assistant in a program, please contact or call 623-445-5005.  All applicants must be at least 18 years old.
Our programs provide a safe, on-site, enriching environment for students before and after their regularly scheduled school day by incorporating activities indoors and out, as well as homework assistance, tutoring and organized play.  Before & After Care is available to students age 5-14 in grades K-8; students must attend school at the site where the program is offered.  Early entry kindergarten students are eligible for this program once they have reached their 5th birthday.

6:30 a.m. until start of school
School release until 6:00 p.m., including early release days
Monday through Friday, excluding school holidays

NOTE:  For safety reasons, some schools may close and lock their gates in the morning at a certain time.  You may still have access to sign your child(ren) into the program, however, you will need to enter through the school office once the gate locks.  Please check with your site staff for gate closure times.   

Registration for 2016-2017 School Year
Due to the high volume of registrations we receive, we strongly encourage early registration.  Please do so by July 31 to ensure attendance by the beginning of the school year.  Registrations received after that date may be subject to a delayed start.  
Registration is now open and is being facilitated through our new online registration system, Eleyo/FeePay.  To register, first set up a FeePay profile.  We will still offer the same schedule plans, but with more scheduling flexibility and simplistic fee structure using daily rates. 
There is an annual per family registration fee that is collected at the time of approval.  We encourage early registration -- and offer an incentive to do so -- to avoid delays in processing your approval and/or being put on a waiting list.  Early registration helps us to plan more efficiently.

  • $40 during July 2016

You will have three plan options to choose from when registering online:
  • Consistent plan is for the same days every week for the entire school year, whether 3, 4, or 5 days per week.  Mornings and afternoons must all be the same days to qualify the $13.50 daily AM/PM rate; if the reserved days are not the same, you will be charged the morning rate of $5 per day and the afternoon rate of $9 per day.  Additional days will be at the rate of $10 for mornings, $14 for afternoons, or $18.50 for morning and afternoon
  • Pick Your Days plan is for 3, 4, or 5 days per week.  The days may vary, and you choose which weeks you will use. You may reserve for as few or as many weeks at a time as you wish.  They do not have to be consecutive weeks.  A calendar will open up for you to choose.  You may reserve weeks throughout the year if you are uncertain of which weeks you need.  PLEASE NOTE that on this plan, days added after the first of the month, days may be charged as additional days and/or be subject to a change fee.  In addition, if days are added to a week you do not have scheduled, you will be charged the Daily Drop In rate.
  • Daily Drop In is for occasional days when you need care but you are not on a regular plan.  No discounts available

Invoices will be generated around the 20th of each month for a due date of the 1st of the upcoming month.  Once invoices are generated your dates are locked in and you will need to email your account representative (see below) to modify your schedule.

Please note that choosing a consistent schedule, or a pick your days schedule for the entire school year, will guarantee your child’s placement in a program. While we do not anticipate this to be a problem, a school may reach capacity at various times throughout the year which may prevent some days from being available for less frequent pick your days or drop in schedules. 

Important:  You are not confirmed until you receive the approval email
  • The first time you register for the year, you must provide a copy of each child's current immunizations to the DVUSD District Office.  If it is not already on file with Community Education, you may:

  • If you choose the Pick Your Days or Daily Drop In plan, each additional registration throughout the school year must be approved before your child may attend
