ANNOUNCING NEW SCHEDULE AND PRICING FOR 
THE 2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR

Before School Child Care 
(6:30-7:45 a.m.) $8.00/day

Panther Pride provides a safe and relaxing start to your student’s day. Our “club members” have many activity options including computers, manipulative, gym, games, and art materials. Some choose to work on their homework or just sit and visit! Snack is provided. This before school program is offered two to five days a week.  
  • One hour of care is provided from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. every Wednesday morning for PLC work.  Fun and enriching activities are provided for a minimal cost of just $5.00, if your student is not in the before school SACC program.  Families who have students in our before school program will not be charged for the additional hour each week.

Kindergarten Plus Program
(opposite of 1/2 day Kindergarten) $20.00/day

Peabody Elementary School offers a Kindergarten enrichment program called Kindergarten Plus, which compliments the Kindergarten experience. Our K+ program is staffed with experienced classified employees with an Early Childhood Education background. This program is considered to be one of the best in the district and will be celebrating its 23rd anniversary in August 2018! 

  • Our students participate in a variety of themes and activities involving art, music, drama, computers, PE, science, math, language arts, conflict management, and social play. The K+ program is offered daily. Students may participate anywhere from 2 to 5 days per week. Our class times and availability are determined yearly, based on the enrollment and needs of students in the regular Kindergarten program.

After School Child Care 
(2:45-6:00 p.m.) $15.00/day

After school “club members” start their afternoon with a healthy snack, followed by outdoor play. Then, students split into three groups (k-1, 2-3, 4-5th grade) and rotate to different “clubs”.  These include homework club, and a variety of art, gym, games, manipulative and computer clubs.  Students may attend two to five days per week.  If signed up for less than 5 days/week, student will need to come on the same days every week.

  • Care is provided on early release Fridays. 
  • NOTE:  Children who normally attend on Friday's are automatically included.  Parents need to let us know if their child will not attend on the early release Friday, in order to prevent the missing child protocol and to avoid paying the additional fee for the extended time. 
Full Day Child Care 
(6:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.) $40.00/day

A full day of care is provided on In-service days and during the summer months. The students are involved in many art, science, cooking, conflict management and recreational activities. Children in our summer program are encouraged to check out books from the Peabody library and will participate in a reading incentive program. Our “club members” enjoy twice a week trips to King’s Point Pool (during the summer months) as well as many other field trips and special presentations. Some days lunch will be provided, while other days students will need to bring their lunch from home. Students may attend two to five days per week. The fee includes all snacks, materials, field trips and special presentation costs. 

******************************

Enrollment policy: 
Our program is self funded and we usually have a wait list.  Because of this, our families need to sign up for the same days every week - a minimum of 2 days per week.  We are not able to provide for a varied schedule or do drop in care.  Please let us know as early as possible, if you child is scheduled to come to the after school program on a certain day, but they will not be attending.  This keeps us from searching the building and calling to check on their whereabouts.  

Payment policy: 
Weekly payments are due the first day of the week that your child attends. If you are paying monthly, payment is due by the 15th of the month.  
A $5/day late payment charge will be added to past due billings. 

Vacation policy: 
You can receive up to two weeks of vacation credit per calendar year. This is based on the number of days per week that your children participate in our program. For example: If your child is scheduled for two days per week, you will receive 4 days of vacation credit. 
Please inform Mary Lloyd when you wish to use this credit so it can be included in your billing. 

PLEASE NOTE, IF YOUR CHILD STARTS IN OUR PROGRAM DURING THE SUMMER, 
THEY WILL ONLY RECEIVE ONE WEEK OF VACATION FOR THE REMAINDER OF THAT CALENDAR YEAR. 

Illness credit: 
If your child is absent because of illness for 3 consecutive days or more, 
you will receive an illness credit. 

Our program is offered year round. We are closed when Peabody is closed for holidays and breaks (except for summer). These dates are always posted and will be listed in your monthly newsletter. You are not billed for these dates. We do offer care on parent teacher conference days, teacher in- service days, as well as early release and late start days. 

Late pick up policy: 
 Late fees will be added to your tuition as follows:
