Extended Care Options

  1. Before School Care that begins at 6:30 am until 7:55 am. On Late Start days, our hours are the same! Your child/ren must be enrolled in the Late Start Childcare Program through District #300 to receive care from 7:55 am until the start of school (10:00 am).
  2. After School Care from dismissal that goes until 5:30 pm

Important Notes

The program requires a minimum of 20 children to run at each facility, for each program. For example, if 20 children are not registered for morning care at any school, morning care will not be offered. However, if there are 20 children for morning care between 2 schools, we may combine morning care to 1 location. Likewise, if 20 children are registered for after care, but only 2 are registered for full day, only half day will be offered.

Online registration is not available for this program. All forms must be completed and fees must be paid at least 2 days (not including weekends) before your child may attend the program.

Registration Documents

All necessary forms must be completed and faxed to 847-683-1741, emailed to , or dropped off at 390 South Ave., Hampshire. NO ONLINE REGISTRAION IS AVAILABLE.


Registration Fee

There is a $70 resident/$100 non-resident registration fee per family (not per child) required at the start of each school year. Registration is continuous throughout the year when spots are available. At anytime there may be a waitlist for each school.
