BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL CARE & KINDERGARTEN EXTENSION

Our Before and After School Program takes learning and exploring to the next level with a wide variety of activities, and sports. Your child can play all their favorite games, make new friends or try something new all within the safety of the United Sports facility.

Our Kindergarten Extension Program offers Kindergartners enrolled in half-day kindergarten to spend their morning or afternoon at United Sports moving and having fun through a variety of fun games, sports, and activities.

Program Information

Our Before School Program is offered from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. with drop off directly at United Sports. Our shuttle vans will depart from our facility by approximately 8:30 a.m. every morning- or 20 min. prior to the start of your child’s school day.

Our After School Program provides vans to the schools each day between 3:20 p.m. and 3:40 p.m.- or within 10- 15 minutes of the end of your child’s school day – for pick up. We will then transport your child to our facility between 3:45pm and 4:15pm. Care lasts until 6:30 p.m. All parent pickup will take place at the United Sports facility.

Our Early Dismissal Program will begin at the end of the elementary school day ( approx. 12:15 p.m. for Collegium Charter School; approximately 11:55 a.m. for Caln and Reeceville Elementary Schools). This means that when you are registered for the After School Sports Enrichment program, whenever the students have half days, we pick them up and they come to United Sports for the afternoon. The program will continue to run until 6:30 p.m. on Early Dismissal days as well. This is included at no extra cost to your registration for the After School program. 

Children registered for After Care (or Before & After Care Combo) are automatically enrolled to participate in early dismissal days.

Our Kindergarten Extension Program offers two sessions: a morning (AM) session for children enrolled in PM kindergarten and an afternoon (PM) session for children enrolled in AM kindergarten. The AM sessions runs from 6:30am until departure for school; the PM program runs from pick-up at school until 6:30pm.

During the program, children will engage in various sports, games, and activities, including a break for snack and crafts, and time for lunch before heading to school (or when they first arrive after AM Kindergarten)

United Sports will provide transportation to school for PM Kindergarten and from school for AM Kindergarten.

PROGRAM DISCLOSURE

We offer all-inclusive programs appropriate for minorities and persons with disabilities or with Limited English Proficiency and integrate these participants to the best of our abilities providing the necessary reasonable accommodations. All our programs and geared to be all inclusive. Children are broken in grade groups; Kindergarten through second grade and third grade to fifth.

All programs offered by the United Sports Training Center encourage participation by a diverse population, accommodate those with varying abilities, and support diverse learning styles. When participants require additional support, our Inclusion Specialists develop accommodation plans and provide other assistance as appropriate. We offer reasonable accommodations to enable an individual’s successful participation in our programs and services. We ask that you make us aware of any accommodations that may be needed so we can access our ability to accommodate. No, federal law prohibits us from demanding that you submit a request; however, it is important to realize that all participants (no matter what their abilities) are required to meet the minimum participation guidelines and desired behavior expectations of a program (check with the program’s supervisor to see what these are). An accommodation assists staff in creating an environment where the participant can have a successful and enjoyable recreation experience. 

WEATHER/EMERGENCY CLOSING PROTOCOL FOR BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
