Enrollment for The Summer Program will begin March 1, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. The Summer Program is held at Hellstern Middle School. The program operates from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Your child must be four years old by May 26, 2023, and not turn 13 at any point during the summer to be eligible to attend. The program will begin on May 31, 2023, and ends one week before Springdale Public School resumes on August 12, 2023. The district asks that we allow them one week before school resumes in order to prepare the building for the upcoming school year. The cost of the program consists of a $75.00 registration fee per child. The weekly tuition fee is $150.00 per week for one child, $295.00 per week for two children in the same family, or $440.00 per week for three children in the same family. We do offer a part-time rate of $65.00 per day/per child.
The Summer Program includes many fun activities and field trips which are included in your tuition cost. We try and have a field trip daily such as skating, bowling, local parks, hiking, U of A farm, Amazeum, Altitude Trampoline Park, and many more. In addition to field trips, we have persons from the local community visit our program including local dentist offices, fire department, canine police dogs, Strike from the Naturals, humane society, girl/boy scouts, local 4H club, railroad, etc. We feel that it is important to involve the community with our program to allow the children to see and learn about their different roles. There will be a few occasions that your child may bring spending money. This is always optional. While at the program, your child will enjoy ping pong, air hockey, foosball, art center, Legos, dramatic play, free time, gym, and outside play. We also offer different themed days such as sports day and rodeo day. The Summer Program will provide morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack. The program fills up very quickly, once enrollment is full, we will default to a waiting list.
