The Summer Program
Enrollment for The Summer Program will begin March 2, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. The Summer Program is held at Helen Tyson Middle School, and operates from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Your child must be entering Kindergarten for the 2020/21 school year, and not turn 13 before August 5, 2020 to be eligible to attend. The program will begin on May 26, 2020, and ends one week before Springdale Public School resumes on August 5, 2020. The district asks that we allow them one week before school resumes in order to prepare the building for the upcoming school year. The cost of the program consists of a $75.00 registration fee for one child, $125.00 registration fee for two children, and $175.00 registration fee for three children. The weekly tuition fee is $150.00 per week for one child, $295.00 per week for two children in the same family, or $440.00 per week for three children in the same family. We offer a $2.50 per week discount if you choose to have your weekly tuition automatically drafted from a credit card or checking account. This discount applies to full-time enrollment only. We do offer a part-time rate of $65.00 per day/per child. Each family receives one half-price vacation week that can be used at your convenience.
The Summer Program includes many fun activities and field trips which are included in your tuition cost. We try and have a field trip daily such as skating, bowling, Fun City, local parks, hiking, U of A farm, swimming at the Jones Center, Amazeum, Altitude Trampoline Park, and many more. In addition to field trips, we have persons from the local community visit our program including local dentist offices, fire department, canine police dogs, Strike from the Naturals, humane society, girl/boy scouts, local 4H club, railroad, etc. We feel that it is important to involve the community with our program to allow the children to see and learn about their different roles. There will be a few occasions that your child may bring spending money. This is always optional. While at the program, your child will enjoy ping pong, air hockey, foosball, art center, Legos, dramatic play, free time, gym, and outside play. We also offer different themed days such as sports day and rodeo day. Your child will pack their lunch daily. The Summer Program will provide a morning and afternoon snack. The program fills up very quickly, once enrollment is full, we will default to a waiting list.
