After-School Care

1PROGRAM
The After-School Care Program at Dante B. Fascell Elementary School offers a variety of activities, including homework assistance, indoor/outdoor games, music, and arts and crafts. If we can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to call us at (305) 380-1901. Our fax number is (305) 380-1912.

STAFF
The program managers supervise group activity leaders that have been screened by Miami-Dade County Public Schools to work directly with your children in smaller groups. All activity leaders receive a minimum of 45 hours of Department of Children and Families training.

HOMEWORK
Students in After-School Care classes will have time for doing homework assignments. The After School Care activity leader is only responsible for providing a time for homework. Even though the students frequently receive help and encouragement, it cannot be assumed that our workers know the expectations of the classroom teachers or the instructional methods used in the classroom.

SNACKS
Each day a snack will be provided for your child after the end of the regular school day. Please notify staff of any food allergies upon registration.

REGISTRATION

No registration card is considered complete without EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION. All information on the card must be filled in. It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you notify the program manager if there are any changes in the parent contact and/or emergency contact.

INSURANCE
Upon registering your child, it is mandatory to obtain the student accident insurance. No child may attend before-school care or after-school care programs without insurance. This is supplemental insurance and DOES NOT take the place of family or individual medical insurance coverage. It is the responsibility of each parent to become familiar with any insurance limitations and other information provided in the brochure.
