We offer an enriching and engaging Before and After School Childcare Program for Early Learning and Kindergarten through 5th grade Students enrolled in Mason Public Schools.
We use Mason Public Schools transportation to provide busing to the elementary buildings. The Elementary Students ride the bus to and from Alaiedon, North Aurelius and Steele schools.
The program includes breakfast (before school) and snack (after school) through Mason Public Schools Food Services program. All food is prepared by program staff, and ordered though GFS. We accommodate allergies, and dietary needs within reason. If your child requires food accommodations, you may provide snack and/or work with staff to meet the needs of your student.
Activities include arts and crafts, games, recess, sports in the gym, computer time, homework time, and center-time rotations. We participate in community service projects and partner with local organizations as well.
Staffing is based on maintaining a proper ratio through the LARA State of Michigan licensing guidelines. We have a Before/After School Childcare Program Lead Caregiver and many staff members within the program hours. HEC provides a 1:18 ratio for school age children and a 1:12 ratio for Early Learners (ages 4 and up). We currently do not offer childcare options for children under the age of 4.
All K-5 and Early Learning Students are required to follow all Mason Public Schools Behavior Expectations and the district Code of Conduct. This includes maintaining safe and respectful behavior with all students and staff members. Students are at risk for dismissal from the Before and After School Childcare Program according to district guidelines if safety, or behavior prohibits maintaining a positive environment for all students.
