Program & Registration Information

Registration is now open! The deadline is August 31, 2022, to begin the program on the first day of school, September 6, 2022.

Kidcare is a recreational extended care program for students enrolled in grades K-5 in the East Windsor Regional School District. We provide a safe, friendly, and stimulating program through both group and individual activities. Outside activities, gym activities, homework assistance, crafts, and quiet play help to create a positive before and after-school experience for your child.

The Kidcare program offers five-day, four-day, and three-day-a-week programs. All fees are monthly, and all plans require you to select in advance exactly which days of the week you will be sending your child. These days will remain the same for the duration of the contract.

Drop-In Program
You can purchase multiple quantities of coupons for before/aftercare on a drop-in basis. (ex. 10 coupons provide 10 aftercare days). These are virtual coupons that will be redeemed when you drop off or pick up your student.

If your student is NOT registered for the drop-in option, he/she will not be able to drop in. For example, a student is registered for the 3 PM day option and they now need to drop in for an AM session. That will not be possible. The student MUST be pre-registered for an AM drop-in and have a coupon purchased.
Coupons are non-refundable, non-transferable, and expire on the last day of school.
