Before and After School Care Programs

  • Community Education has moved!

    We are now located in the Community Education building at 7071 W. Hillcrest Boulevard, Glendale, AZ 85310.  We are at the far east end of the Copper Creek campus; enter the main drive, continue past the school to the east parking lot.  

     

    Before & After School Care Programs

    As of 6/20/19, the following sites are on a waiting list due to due high enrollment.  To be considered for placment when registration re-opens, please complete the online registration after you have read through all program information.

    • Norterra Canyon
    • Sierra Verde
    • Sonoran Foothills
    • Stetson Hills
    • Terramar

    We do expect that all contract applications for these sites that were submitted through 6/19/19 will be accepted, pending verification of proper documentation.  

    Register Early!  

    We typically ask that people start registering early because of the high volume of registrations we receive for our various programs. We offer the incentive of a reduced registration fee in the hopes that you will submit your information early. It takes us several months to work through the large number of contracts that we receive for our programs, so we do appreciate when you submit your registration early and we thank you for your patience.  Our team continues to work diligently to process them as quickly as possible. 

    We also encourage early registration as some sites will reach capacity and close.  You may be added to a site's waiting list by completing the online registration.  This registration contract will remain in a pending status and secures your space on the waiting list.  If a site re-opens, the pending registrations will be processed in the order they were received.  There is a possibility that a site may not re-open.  

    Please do not try to create your registration application until the new program year/season has opened.  If you start an application for the old year -- prior to the new year opening -- you will not be able to change the program year on this registration once new year opens; it will automatically default back to the old year and you may lose your placement status, as all contracts are approved on a first come, first serve basis, and are date and time stamped upon submission.  

    • Please submit your registration early. 
    • Registrations received after July 30th may be subject to a delayed start date. 
    • Some sites reach capacity early and will close; we make every effort to re-open when appropriate staffing and space is available
    • To secure your place on a waiting list at a closed site, you must complete an online registration (see link below under How to Register)

    A new and separate registration is required for each school year.  

    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.

     
    Hours

    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/closures

    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
     
    Due to the high volume of registrations we receive, we strongly encourage early registration.  Please do so by July 30th to ensure attendance by the beginning of the school year.  Registrations received after that date may be subject to a delayed start.  Some sites may reach capacity and new registrants will be placed on a waiting list.
     
    Registration for 2018-19 is now open at ELEYO; registration for 2019-20 opens on April 1, 2019.  To register, first set up a family profile at ELEYO.  A new registration is required each school year; if you are returning, you will use the same family profile. 
     
    There is an annual per family registration fee that is collected at the time of contract 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. 

    Per family registration fee

    • $20 during April
    • $30 during May and June
    • $60 in July through the remainder of the school year

    You have the following 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 $14 daily AM/PM rate; if the reserved days are not the same, you will be charged the morning rate of $6 per day and the afternoon rate of $10 per day.  Additional days will be at the rate of $11 for mornings, $15 for afternoons, or $19 for morning and afternoon.  This plan is designed for those families with a consistent schedule that remains the same every week.
    • 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 for the calendar month. You may reserve for as few or as many weeks at a time as you wish, but we do ask you to choose your days for a minimum of the calendar month to avoid additional charges.  Your weeks chosen do not have to be consecutive weeks.  A calendar will open during registration to allow you to see the dates.  You may reserve additional weeks throughout the year if you are uncertain of which weeks you need.  PLEASE NOTE that on this plan, any days that are added after the invoice has been issued for the next month will 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.  This plan is designed for families who have fluctuating schedules that may change from week-to-week. 
    • Daily Drop In is for occasional days when you need care but you are not on a regular plan.  No discounts available.  Dates not chosen and approved in advance are subject to availability at the site.  It is recommended that you choose your dates in advance, if possible, to ensure the dates you require.  Please note, however, that dates reserved but no longer needed must be removed; once they are invoiced, they are locked in and will not be refunded.  
    • Employee Only-PLC 90-Minute Early Release Friday plan is only for qualified DVUSD employees.  This is a separate contract from any other plans or days that may be needed.  This plan does not include conference or half days, and only provides care for 90 minutes on those days designated as Professional Learning Community (PLC) days.   If an employee needs care for days other than PLC Fridays, they will need to submit two (2) separate contracts.  Please contact your Account Representative if you need assistance.  

    Invoices will be generated around the 25th of each month for a due date of the 1st of the upcoming month; this date will vary for weekends and holidays.  Once invoices are generated your dates are locked in for the month, and you will need to email your account representative (see below) to modify your schedule.  Please watch for messages on your monthly invoices regarding invoice dates, especially around holidays and break times.  

    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.  If you know you will need care on the weekly PLC 90-minute early release days, we recommend you reserve these days in advance.
