    The Ann Arbor Public Schools Community Education and Recreation department runs on-site before and after school childcare programs at these 5 Ann Arbor elementary schools:


     Child care programs at Burns Park and Lawton Elementaries are run by Community Day Care. Child care at King Elementary is run by KingKare.

    Program Hours 

    Before school care opens at 7:15AM and ends at the beginning of the school day. 
    After school care begins at the end of the school day and closes at 6:00PM.


    Yearly Registion Fee $30 per student (non-refundable)

    Standard Schedule (Extended Day Program ) per week $150. The $150 Weekly Program Fee is based on 173 full days of care that have been divided equally over the school year. The fee per month will remain the same regardless of how many days/weeks are in a month because the fee has been averaged out for the year. In this way of calculaing the fee, families are not charged for "no school " days, and are not charged for PM care for half days.

    For additional fees, please look at the Extended Day Program Handbook
