Activities include homework assistance, daily snack and drink, physical exercise, recreational games, KidzLit program, art and craft time, character building, table games, and more. Activities stimulate social interaction among peers, teach and enhance good character qualities, and help the child develop intellectually. C.A.T.C.H. (Coordinated Approach To Children’s Health) taught by U of I Extension Nutrition Education Programs, will be a new component in our District 27 After School Programs at Central, Adams, Northwest, and Washington-Monroe schools.
All ages attend the before school programs at their respective schools. After School will be held at Faith Assembly of God church for Chester East and District #27 children.
Parents have the option to register for part-time (1-2 days), or full-time (3-5 days) care. When you enroll your child, you are reserving space, time, staffing, and provisions whether or not your child attends. Therefore, if your child is absent, you will be responsible for the full payment of your committed time.
There must be a minimum of ten children at each school site to run the Before & After school program. If enrollment is below ten children at any school site, we will start a waitlist. If you have questions about our waitlist or would like to add your child to the waitlist, please contact Kristina Snellen at (217) 735-3915 or you can email Kristina at email@example.com
