Extended Day Programs

  • Federal Grants and Programs administers the Marion County Public School’s Extended Day program. This program provides before and/or after school childcare services at thirty-eight school sites throughout Marion County. Approximately 3,000 students per day participate in this program. The morning programs are open as early as 6:30 a.m. until school starts and the afternoon programs open at school dismissal until 6:00 p.m. The program is available every day school is in session, including early release days. This is a flat rate, fee-based program. Parents/Guardians must pre-register their children.  For more information about the Extended Day Program, please click on one of the links to the below or call the Extended Day Office at (352) 671-4135.

     

    Extended Day provides opportunities for children to develop socially, emotionally, and physically, within a warm and caring atmosphere.  This is accomplished through our focus on leadership, academics, wellness, and S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math).

     

    Programming enrichment opportunities include: the Discovery Science Center, 4H, Ocala Civic Theatre, The First Tee of Greater Ocala, University of Florida’s Entomology Outreach Program, and various programming activities such as wellness, sewing, science, arts, cooking projects, outdoor sports, Spanish, and more.
