SAFE Before & After School Care

SAFE Before & After School Care

Safe, Active, Fun, Enrichment – S.A.F.E.

The S.A.F.E. Before and After School Program is for students in Plano, Sandwich, Somonauk and Yorkville school districts and provides an inclusive atmosphere where children are nurtured and encouraged to have fun and cultivate friendships. During S.A.F.E. staff honor families by allocating time and assistance when needed for students to complete homework successfully. The kids in the SAFE program will have the choice to do arts and crafts, play large group games, play board games and much more. We offer a light breakfast in the morning and a snack during afternoon care.  We are a nut-free program.

On days off school, our SAFE program offers Activity Days. Registration for Activity Days is separate from the SAFE program and is $40M/$60NM per day. Activity days are no longer included in the full time SAFE rate. Activity day registration and days of care are listed by searching “Activity Days” under programs.
