The Edison Club
MPA's Before & After Care Program
With the help of an experienced Director with her Masters in Education, we offer a before and after care program called The Edison Club. It is designed to be an affordable option for those families needing childcare on a regular basis, without the additional worry and expense of transporting them to alternative daycare providers. We meet the needs of working parents with both consistent and irregular schedules. Monthly statements will be provided to all families for tax purposes.
The Edison Club meets from 7:00-8:15am in the morning and from 3:15-6:00pm in the afternoon, with 3 designated pickup times at 4:30, 5:30 and 6:00pm. It is staffed by a trained Menlo Park staff member. Cost is just $4.00 per hour per child and includes materials. There is a 10% discount for two or more children, and a one-time $25 registration fee per family. For those planning to use the club only on certain days, you must provide notification each Sunday evening by 6:00pm.
The morning club includes quiet activities and games. The afternoon club includes snack time (you provide the snack), homework time and other educational yet fun activities such as crafts, recreational activities, special events, field trips, computer time, movies, community service projects and more. See the sample calendar attached below for an example of monthly programming.
The children benefit from playing with friends of all ages, and parents are at ease knowing that their child(ren) can stay in the same caring place before and after school.
