School Age Before & After Care

5 yrs – 11 years

During the school year, our School Age program is offered for children ages 5 – 11 years of age. Our center is located within the Lincoln Consolidated school district. Lincoln provides bussing for before and after school on a tiered schedule based on the schools. DDDC offers before and after school bussing for East Arbor Charter Academy. This service is available at our Merritt location only.

Because communication is the key to keeping parents involved and aware of their child’s homework participation and behaviors while at the center, we will provide the following:
* Frequent conversations between teachers and parents either in person, by phone.
* The opportunity to develop relationships between the classroom and the families through our family events and activities.
