PAE Before and After Child Care

Park Avenue Elementary School Before and After School Child Care

The Webster Public Schools is pleased to offer child care at Park Avenue Elementary School during the school year for school-age children from Kindergarten through grade six.  The program is offered in an enjoyable, comfortable and safe atmosphere. Current public health and safety measures will be followed based on the state of Massachusetts and the Department of Early Education and Care guidelines. Our philosophy is that each child deserves the love and respect that will foster self-esteem, independence, and self-worth.  We provide activities that will address the physical, intellectual, social, and emotional needs of all of the participants.
Students participate in activities such as physical fitness, engage in educational activities during “creative learning” in mathematics, literacy, science and technology. At enrollment, each student will receive materials for individual use during programming, such as drawing & art, Legos, fidgets, yoga mats, games and storage.  A designated time is scheduled each session for students to work on homework assignments and participate in mindfulness exercises, techniques, and activities.

Weekly tuition is determined by the number of days on which your child is registered, in order to add/drop days.  At any time the program closes due to school closure, or early release due to inclement weather, you are not responsible for that daily tuition.  Should the unexpected occur, you will receive a tuition credit on your account.
