KidsCare Before & After School Program

The KidsCare program is a before and after-school program operated by the SPCS Education Foundation located at Springfield Elementary and supports both elementary schools.

KidsCare offers programming during regular school days, early dismissals, non-school days, and summer vacation.

KidsCare operates under a school age license. In order to be eligible to enroll, all children must be currently enrolled in SPCS public schools and be of school age. School age starts the first day of kindergarten and goes through 6th grade. Due to this restriction, all incoming kindergartners will not be able to attend our summer program until after they have completed kindergarten.
