Programmed After-school Recreation for Kids (P.A.R.K.) is a daily after-school childcare program for children in kindergarten through fourth grade. The program takes place in the gymnasiums at Bolton Crossing, Buckeye Woods, J.C. Sommer, Highland Park, Monterey and Richard Avenue elementary schools, and runs from 2:40 to 6 p.m. every day the SWCSD is in session. The program does not operate when the SWCSD is closed for inclement weather. Qualified childcare providers staff each site.
P.A.R.K. provides planned cooperative games, fitness, indoor and outdoor activities, free art, special interest activities, stations, free-choice activities and much more. Children should bring a snack to P.A.R.K. daily.
Parents of participants are responsible for reading and abiding by the information contained in the Parent Handbook. To ensure proper care of your child, a number of forms must be completed and returned to the office before the child may participate in the program.
