Program Hours
Before School Programs begin 1-2 hours before the start of the school day at the school, unless the school start time is not a standard time. The Before School program may be longer at those particular sites. Click here for Broward County School hours.

After Care hours are generally from 2:00pm - 6:00pm. If the schools have a later dismissal time, hours and rates are adjusted accordingly. Some programs might stay open beyond 6:00 pm.

Early release day's hours begin as soon as school is dismissed and run until program close time. Click here for Broward County School calendar.

A late pick up fee is charged if students are not picked up by program close time.
