Extended Care Registration for the 2022-2023 School Year

Priority registration opens for the 2022-2023 school year starting May 2, 2022. Open registration begins on May 16, 2022. Registration closes on July 1, 2022. Registrations after this date will be taken and put on a waitlist for enrollment.

This program is held at Big Timber Elementary, Gary D. Wright Elementary and Hampshire Elementary schools. The Hampshire Township Park District offers supervised care for your children at all facilities that meet the enrollment minimum. Registration for this program is not available online. Registration packets for the 2022-2023 school year will be available starting April 1, 2022 at the Park Office at 390 South Ave or at the bottom of this page after that date.

CPR certified staff provides your children with reliable and safe care in a fun environment. Extended Care Staff organize daily activities including games and crafts. After school children are offered supervised homework time. Physical activities are also offered daily both inside and outside weather permitting.

Because this program is operated at each school your child has the choice to attend after school art classes, dance or sport programs at their school and then attend Extended Care.

Children must be completely potty trained.

Extended Care Options

  1. Before School Care that begins at 6:30 am (until the start of school at 8:00 am.)
  2. After School Care from dismissal that goes until 5:45pm (4:30pm on early release days.)

Important Notes

The program requires a minimum of 12 children to run at each facility, for each program. For example, if 12 children are not registered for morning care at any school, morning care will be cancelled and a waitlist will be started. Likewise, if 14 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.
