Elementary students are very much a part of who we’re at Bayside Discovery Center. We are actually pleased to service the following area elementary schools with quality before and after school care: Westside Elementary, Odyssey Charter School and Sunrise Elementary.
Included in your weekly, flat rate tuition is transportation, a selection of after school snacks, access to a quiet homework room, in addition to organized games and activities for your school aged child. We purposefully designate our classes by grade level while keeping our ratios at or below state mandates in 4 groups: Kindergarten and TK-1, First Graders, Second and Third Graders, and Fourth-Sixth Graders. Each group has got a consistent rotation schedule consisting of inside and outside organized games and activities with enthusiastic team members and include weekly cooking, one movie day per week, sports, arts and crafts, plus much more!
We take transportation and dismissal procedures very seriously at Bayside Discovery Center and you could rest assured that if your child is expected to be our van in the afternoon, our staff member will NOT leave the elementary school without notification from the parent or an elementary school staff member letting them know that your child has made other arrangements. That stated, it has been of utmost importance that parents remember to keep our front desk informed of any changes within your dismissal plans, or if your little one is absent from elementary school for any reason.
Children who are enrolled in our before and after school program are also eligible to come to BSDC on school holidays, Christmas and Spring Break and, best of all, Summer Camp! A list of days that BSDC is closed is published each January for the entire year, but they are a limited number of days. Don’t stress about the teacher workdays or the early dismissal days- we’ve got you covered!
