Dexter Community Education School Age Child Care provides essential support for working families through after-school care and special programs on non-school days. We specialize in enrichment and recreational activities outside of regular school hours for children from Young 5 through Grade 6. Our state-licensed child care services are staffed by qualified, experienced professionals who prioritize the well-being and enjoyment of every child. Each grade level enjoys tailored activities, games, projects, and both indoor and outdoor play. Children have the option to engage in reading and homework, alongside free time to develop social skills and explore personal interests. Our centers maintain a safe, nurturing, and inclusive environment, adhering to District policies and procedures at all times.All School Age Child Care programs are located at Bates.

We offer both full-time and part-time scheduling options (minimum of three days per week), with part-time schedules requiring consistent days/sessions throughout the entire month. The daily rate for After Care is $16.50. Care Staff escort Anchor, Beacon, and Wylie students from their schools to Bates for After Care and Half-Day Care. Creekside students are transported by bus to the hub and then walk to Bates.
