General Information
  • Fees include transportation from Fort Banks and Cummings Schools
  • We will be providing a light snack after school such as WATER, goldfish, animal crackers, pretzels, etc. Please advise us of any food allergies or restrictions for your child by updating your child's household information.
  • Homework Time: After snack time and outdoor activities, we have a quiet time for the children to concentrate on homework including Lexia and TenMarks. We will make every effort to help and encourage them during this period. Be aware that this may not be enough time for all their homework to be completed. All children will be required to work on homework at this time unless otherwise specified upon checkout by the parent. We understand that some parents would prefer the help while others would prefer their children to do it at home with the help of the parent.
  • Trial Period: All children are accepted into the program on a trial basis. If there is a question about the child’s ability to fit into the program or about the program’s ability to meet the child’s needs, a conference will be set up to determine the child’s continuation in our program. Any behavioral issues, special needs, etc. should be addressed prior to registration in the program. Winthrop Parks and Recreation reserves the right to refer parents to more suitable care if necessary
  • Absent/Early Dismissal: Please call Parks and Recreation if your child will not be attending on a scheduled day due to illness, vacation, birthday party, play date, etc. Also late arrival and early dismissal need to be communicated to Parks and Recreation so that we are not expecting your child and holding up the rest of the program. **Failure to due so will result in a warning letter and repeated offenses will result in dismissal from program. We will not release them to someone else on the word of the child or another adult. Please call first thing in the morning so we can have an accurate attendance for pick up. Thank you
