School Age Before and After School Programs

Great Beginnings Learning Center has extended
Before & After School Programs for your child!

We offer homework help at Great Beginnings After School Program

We offer homework help!

The Before School Program is designed for children who are in school all day and need a secure environment before school hours 6:30 am to the start of school, while their parents are at work.

The Before School Program offers a breakfast around 7:45 am and the children will be allowed to relax or play games before transportation to school is required.

The After School Program is designed for children who are in school all day or half-day kindergarten and need a secure environment for after school hours. The After School program provides childcare from 3:45 pm to 6:00 pm (or as needed for kindergartners) Monday through Friday, on days that school is in session.

Relaxing after school!

On the days that school is out, with the exception of the summer break, we will provide full- and part- time care, if a parent chooses. On these days breakfast will be offered at 8:00am, and children will get multiple opportunities to go either outside, or to our muscle room, for exercise and free play.

Structured play times and craft will also be provided on days where school is not in session. Please ask the administrator about the rates for School Age during Snow Days, Winter Break, School Days off and Spring Break.

Homework assistance will be offered from 4:00 – 4:30 pm Monday –Friday, with free choice options available after homework is completed.

**Summer Fun Program – watch for information regarding these camps around late winter / early spring. 

Policy for Determining Whereabouts of a Child Coming to Us After School:

If for any reason your child is not lined up with the rest of his/her class for after school care a staff member will notify the teacher at that school to determine whereabouts.  After they determine this, our staff will then take the remaining group of kids to the Center.


Great Beginnings transports children to and from Big Walnut Elementary and General Rosecrans Elementary. We also walk the children to and from Harrison Street Elementary. Permission to transport forms must be signed before we are able to transport your child.

Please note we will not transport 1/2 day Kindergarten for BWE and GRE. We will only walk HSE for half day Kindergarten. We do not provide before and afterschool care for Grades 5,6,7.

For children going to preschool at Harrison Street Elementary, we are able to walk them over and pick them up for the morning or afternoon preschool.
