Afterschool Program

  • Extended Learning Philosophy 

    The purpose of the Department of Extended Learning is to facilitate opportunities for quality afterschool programs which meet the fundamental needs common to all students during afterschool hours. It is important that students have access to the best possible opportunities to develop into healthy, well-adjusted and responsible adults.

    Payments are due the first school day of the month. If you are paying by installments, the first payment is due the first school day of the month and the second payment is due in the middle of the month. There is a $5 late fee if payment is not made on time. Failure to pay can result in your child being removed from the program. Fee Payment Agreements are available if needed. Once your child is removed, your child cannot rejoin the program until (1) your balance is paid, (2) the current month is paid, and (3) there is space available in the group. 

    To pay online, payments can be made online using Parents that receive ELC may pay by cash, check, or money order made out to Banyan Creek Elementary. 

    If you are late picking up your child, it is $1 minute. If your child is part-time and you are constantly late, we can change your child to full-time.


  • If I sign up my child as part-time, but then want to switch to full-time, can I?

  • Can I remove my child from the program and then put them back in if I need to?

  • If my child is on the wait list, will they ever get off?

  • Do students get a snack during afterschool? Does it cost anything extra?

  • Will my child get homework help if they need it?
