School Age Child Care

  • 2017-18 SACC enrollment is ongoing. 
    Note: Some sites having waiting lists. Please do not expect an immediate start date at any site. Also, medication authorizations and other special needs require additional paperwork that can lengthen the enrollment process. 
  • The Ann Arbor Public Schools Community Education and Recreation Department is committed to enhancing the overall well being of children who attend our School Age Child Care Program. We believe that a quality childcare experience depends on continuity, planning, and children having a sense of belonging to the group. Our program is designed to both enrich and complement a child’s school experience. To that end, we strive to provide:
    • A safe, healthy, stable environment

    • A capable, sensitive, caring and energetic staff who understand the needs of children in a childcare environment and who take part in ongoing staff development

    • Well-organized, age-appropriate activities and games for recreation and skill acquisition, using materials in good condition

    • Realistic situations for informally learning new skills, for learning to take appropriate responsibility for the childcare environment, and for the practice and mastery of ways to get along well with other children and adults

    • An environment in which children’s prior knowledge and natural interests provide a platform for growth and development through organized play and activities

    • An extension of the school environment and its advantages of diversity and community

    Our primary focus is before and after school care at Ann Arbor public elementary schools, but we also offer Fun Day programs on some no-school days and day camps during some breaks.

    Families register for our child care programs online. Families without computer access can register at the Rec & Ed office. Instructions for registration are available here
