Webster Central School District recently announced the opening of WonderCare, the district’s new before and after school childcare program.
WonderCare will open its doors in September at each of WCSD’s seven elementary schools and will be available to all WCSD-enrolled kindergarten through sixth-grade students.
WonderCare has been established in an ongoing effort to ease the transition for families as the district prepares to shift to an earlier start time for elementary schools in fall 2019. New start times for elementary schools will be 7:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. and 8:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. for secondary schools — middle and high schools — with all times plus or minus five minutes.
WonderCare will provide a part-time, full-time or drop-in program for WCSD elementary and sixth-grade families seeking child care. The program includes caring, experienced directors and staff members with an on-site coordinator at every elementary building. All elements of WonderCare programming will support WCSD’s curriculum and provide educational experiences for students.
As with all public education programs, WonderCare will be overseen by the New York State Education Department. WonderCare will serve as an option for families seeking before and after school child care programming for the 2019-20 school year. Enrollment packets will be available beginning in January.
