Extended Day Programs
Parents, the next opportunity to register your child for Extended Day will be at your child's school orientation. Space is limited and we have several schools on a waiting list currently. For more information, contact the Administrative office at 352-671-4135.
The Extended Day Program of Marion County Public School’s 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.
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, The Humane Society, Feed the Need Gardening Program, and various programming activities such as wellness, sewing, science, arts, cooking projects, outdoor sports, Spanish, and more.
