The program provides services to children from kindergarten through 5th Grade.  It is one of the largest afterschool childcare programs in the District.  It serves both subsidized and tuition-based families.  The program provides a safe and nurturing environment year-round for all students.


There are two separate waiting lists, for state-subsidized slots and for tuition-based slots.  Determination is based on family income.  State-subsidized families must meet state income guidelines and show a parental need for the program.  Tuition-based families do not need to meet state income guidelines.


  1. Fill out appropriate application.

  2. Priority is given to siblings, children attending Jefferson Pre-K Child Development Center, and children in Child Protective Services.

  3. Enrollment list is made after children receive acceptance notice to Jefferson Elementary.

  4. Parents are notified in late June about acceptance into program.

  5. Appointment is made to fill out appropriate forms and contract.


State-subsidized contracts are for a one-year period, and the family needs to be recertified each year.  Tuition-based contracts are for the school calendar year.  Extended care is sometimes available.


Subsidized:  Sliding scale based on income and size of family.

Tuition-based:  $510 per month.
