Purely Recreation Before and After School Program
Recreation and more! We mix a little learning with a lot of fun activities. The curriculum includes outside play, science fun, arts and crafts, and special events. We offer both a before school program and an after school program.
Currently, the schedule of the program reflects a full 5-day in person return to school schedule. Thompson Recreation will adjust the Before & After School schedule should the school schedule change.
Students are grouped based on age into small groups. A staff trained in CPR/First Aid is always present. Space is limited to 24 at before school care and 24 at after school care.
Registration is by monthly (4 week) sessions. You may choose five days or three days per week. If you choose the 3 days/week option you may select whichever days work best for your schedule. You must call the office to select your days. These days may be different week to week but must be selected at the time of registration.
New registrations will be accepted on a rolling basis if space is available. Monthly rate will be prorated for days missed.
Once enrolled, your child will continue to be enrolled in the next month unless payments are not made by the deadline at which point the space will become available to those on the wait list.
Full payment is due at the time of registration. Payment dates for each month are below. Payments can be made by credit card, cash, or check. Invoice reminders will be sent two weeks prior to the start of the next month. Payments are not accepted at the program site and must be made online or at the Recreation Office for receipt purposes.

- Early Release Days: If your child is already enrolled in the After School program on days on which early release days are scheduled they are automatically enrolled for the half day at no additional fee. If they however are not enrolled for those days you must register them separately for the early release days.

Early Release Fridays are open to children who do not participate in the Afterschool Program.
We are now only offering a 5 day or 3 day a week option. This is due to the maximum number of students allowed per room and regulations encouraging group attendance to remain consistent. Also, we have changed our pricing to a monthly option to make payments more manageable for households.
