School Age Care

Dexter Community Education Child Care is a support service provided for working families which includes after school care and non-school day special programs. We specialize in "out of school time" enrichment and recreation programs for Young 5 through Grade 6. Our child care services are licensed by the state and we employ qualified, experienced, caring staff to offer fun activities specifically designed for each grade level. Children participate in age-appropriate activities, games, projects, and indoor & outdoor play. They will have time for reading and homework by choice, as well as free time to build social skills and share interests and talents. We maintain a safe, nurturing, warm and welcoming environment in our centers and follow District policies and procedures

All School Age Care programs are located at Bates. 

Anchor, Beacon and Wylie students are escorted from their school to Bates by Care Staff for After Care and for Half-Day Care. Creekside students ride a bus to the hub and walk to Bates. On No School full days, students may be dropped off at the Bates front entrance after 7:30 am. 

AFTER CARE: After care runs from dismissal school bell until 6:00 pm. We offer full time or part time scheduling (at least three days/week), and part-time schedules must contain the same days/sessions consistently throughout the entire month. After care is $16/day. 

NO SCHOOL DAY CARE: Child care is offered on most of the District's scheduled No-School days for Y5's-6th grade. This includes half days (from half-day dismissal school bell until 6pm) and the occasional full day no school (7:30 am - 6:00 pm). Our programs are fun, age appropriate, and incorporate a wide variety of activities. Important: parents should send a NUT-FREE lunch and snack with your student. These programs are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. In the event that programs do not fill, they may be cancelled or plans may be adjusted. Half-day programs are $36/day and full day programs are $66/day.

A $75 non-refundable fee is due at enrollment. If you decide not to use the program after registration, the fee will not be refunded. If you need financial assistance you may contact the Department of Human Services to see if you qualify.
