eCARE is a Park District run program, housed in Fox Valley Park District facilities, which offers full-day options for children whose parents require extended care.
eCARE is designed to meet the needs of parents and children in kindergarten through 5th grade outside of school hours. This extended CARE program helps provide solutions for families in our community by providing activities, recreation and enrichment for the youth in collaboration with the school district. Arts and crafts, healthy snacks, indoor and outdoor play, eLearning/homework time and games are offered under the supervision of qualified, caring staff.
- It is our goal to provide quality CARE where the participants feel safe, stay active and are fully supervised. We look forward to this school year to offer extracurricular activities, create lifelong friendships and create school aged memories.
Those that pre-register will be sent a link on Thursday or Friday to sign up for the location they prefer along with a registration password before registration opens up to all.
