Before and After Care

GPS Club Superheroes: Before & After School Care Program

GPS is proud to offer the Club Superheroes Before and After Care Program. The program engages students through a balance of art, games, science and physical activities. Before school we offer breakfast and a safe space for your child to gear up for the day, play and ask questions to help him/her feel prepared to learn. After school we provide a daily snack and a combination of structured activities and free play that allow your child to relax and have fun with their friends during the after-school hours.

 

Annual Calendar and Hours of Operation

Please review the Club Superheroes Annual Calendar as the program is available during many of the days when GPS is not in session. Club Superheroes is also open 6:30am-6:00pm during many of the days when GPS is not in session. Fees for care on these days are not included in the regular monthly registration fees.
