We offer a Before School Program at all of the elementary schools in town.  The Before School Program opens at 7:00 a.m. every day school is in session.  Our After School Programs are open from school dismissal for grades K-8, till 6:00 p.m. every day school is in session.  This includes Early Thursdays and all other early dismissals. We are closed on holidays, snow days, and vacation weeks in accordance with the public school’s schedule.  For an additional fee, we do offer programs during December, February and April vacations, as well as all summer.

Our after school program operates out of two schools: the Hansen School, 1800 Central Street, and the Jones School, 137 Walnut Street.  Upon dismissal from school, SED staff meets the children at each school.  The children are then transported to the appropriate site by an SED program school bus.  A non-refundable $25 fee is due upon registration (one per family).   There is a 20% discount for additional children.
