Webster Public Schools Before and After School Program

 

The Webster Public Schools Before and After School Program is pleased to offer child care at the 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.
