After-School Care

  • CASTLE is Squires’ very own licensed childcare program!  381-3015

    WHAT IS THE COST?  Registration:  $30.00 single child/$40.00 for 2 children from the same family.  The daily rate is $10.00 per day for FULL-TIME and $11.00 per day for PART-TIME (minimum of 3 days per week).  Tuition is to be paid by the 15th of each month.  Snow days are credited in May.  There is a late fee of $2.00 per minute after 6:00 p.m. pick-up payable at time of pick-up.

    WHAT ARE THE HOURS?  Starting at school dismissal, 2:40 P.M. until 6:00 p.m.  Child care is not provided on days Fayette Public Schools are not in session.

    WHAT IS THE CURRICULUM?  CASTLE is strictly an enrichment program offering arts and crafts, snack outdoor activities, homework assistance, movies, games, computer and gym time.  Additional enrichment activities are available at different times during the year based on availability.

    WHAT IF I DO NOT GET A SPOT?  Your child’s name will be added to the afterschool wait list.  You will be called when the program has an opening.  Please seek other childcare in the meantime.

    **The CASTLE program is licensed by the cabinet for Health and Family Resources.  The program is extremely popular and therefore we must limit the number of students that can be enroll.  State guidelines and ratios for enrollment dictate the number of students that a licensed center may enroll.  If you think this program will work for you, please attend the open Registration beginning in April and the Back to School Night held in August.  There are no guarantees for a spot in August.
