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.

The fee is paid at the entry into the program and again for any re-entry throughout the school year. At sites offering credit card payment, you may use American Express, Visa or MasterCard. Some programs allow for payment online via the Broward Schools estore.

Please note that these payment amounts will be different for year round schools and those schools that end after 2:00 PM. Fees are paid in advance for services and are due on the given due date.
