Extended Day Program
2022-2023 School Year
Extended Day Program - Before/After Care
We understand how important before and after school care is to working families in AAPS. Rec & Ed's Before/After Care program promotes children's wellbeing through enrichment activities, positive relationships, and a safe environment. Rec & Ed is actively hiring qualified staff for Fall 2022 with the intention of adding at least two more sites beyond the current five. Our child care licenses are up-to-date in 13 additional buildings -- all we need is staff.

To attract and retain staff, we have increased pay rates for all positions, added benefits, and are offering a fall financial bonus. Schedules are flexible, with both part-time and full-time opportunities ranging from assistant to program director. Find out more on our employment opportunities page.
Three schedules are available for families:
*For full-time care, please register for both the AM and PM sessions.
- Full time - AM and PM 5 days/week
- AM only - 5 days/week
- PM only - 5 days/week
As an organization, we must balance paying employees a competitive wage and benefits with keeping the prices affordable for families. Fees for the 2022-23 school year will increase to offer a higher base pay for all positions, provide benefits, and give fall retention bonuses.
