After School Care Program

  • Varnell's After School Care program is an extension of the school day that is both fun and educational. It is offered to Kindergarten through 5th grade students. Our ASC provides a balance between learning and fun through a variety of activities and engaging experiences. We provide students with a schedule that allots times for homework help, a healthy snack, physical activities, and creative expression.

    Please be sure to complete both the ASC contract as well as the ASC information sheet before your child attends to ensure that we will be able to have the most up to date information needed to stay in contact.

    *After School Care is provided from 2:30-6:00 pm each school day.
