Before and After the Bell Program
The Community House believes that play is the best form of research, and we pride ourselves on providing safe and engaging environments where students can learn while being provided with support from highly qualified, talented and enthusiastic staff.
For many years, we have provided Before and After School Services to our community with pick-up and drop-off at school at The Community House main location on W. Eighth Street. We will continue to serve elementary students and families here and enhance our services in partnership with the D181 school district for the 2021-2022 school year and provide the highest quality services to youth enrolled in the following schools every day of the school week.
BEFORE THE BELL is a safe environment for your child to be with friends before the school day begins. Your child will do fun activities, gym time and organized games. A light breakfast snack will be provided. BEFORE the BELL follows School District 181 calendar and runs Monday-Friday 7:00am-8:30 am.
