Child Care

  • How a child’s day begins, and what happens after school, can have a big impact on school performance. The smiling face of someone who cares, can help with homework, and offer special activities can be the key to success for many students.
  • Elkhart Community Schools’ has partnered with the leaders in before and after care, to provide students with a morning that prepares them for a day of learning at school, and an afternoon that reinforces school curriculum. Students in before and after care will experience programs that are fun and educational, and encourage participation and inclusion of all ages and abilities.
