The Healthy Kids Extended Day Program provides before and after school childcare to students in grades K-5 and offers recreation, arts and crafts and academic programs. The before school program begins at 6:30 a.m. and the after school program begins at the end of the school day and ends at 6 p.m. All three elementary schools in the district participate in the program.

In February of 2016, Monticello Central School District received a grant which offers a limited number of spots at a reduced cost. Working families who need both before and after school care receive priority placement at the reduced rate.

“With many families having two working parents, we understand that finding affordable child care can be a struggle,”Superintendent of Schools Tammy Mangus said. “We are proud to offer our families the opportunity for safe and educational before and after school care right in their child’s school.”

According to the program’s website, The Healthy Kids Extended Day Program is one of the largest, most experienced and highest quality providers of extended day child care in New York with programs in dozens of elementary schools in Brooklyn, Dutchess, Orange, and Westchester counties. The program’s directors and staff are highly skilled, background-checked and credentialed; the New York State Office of Children and Family Services licenses and oversees its program.

Parents and guardians can register their child(ren) at any time by contacting Jeanne Martin, at (845) 568 -6100 ext 1002
