Before School Program


Does your child need supervised care before school?

If so, our before school program can help. Students will have the opportunity to play and learn prior to the start of the school day.

This is for kids attending East or West Elementary in grades Kindergarten to 5th grade.

There is a $25 registration fee and families can purchase 5-visit punch cards for $25 and use as needed throughout the school year. Times for before care is 7:30am-8:30am (or when the bus picks the kids up). Registration is in person at the Athens Community Center.
