After School Recreation
The 2015-2016 School Year
The Wilmette Park District offers an After-School Recreation program for students in grades K-6. Our qualified, caring staff not only provides group attention, but also gives time to children on an individualized basis. Families are offered the option of registering children for three or five days a week. The three-day participants may choose which three days they prefer, based on space availability according to DCFS licensing standards, but the three days must remain constant throughout the year.
Children will meet from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wilmette Public Schools District 39 days off. There is no program on Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Friday after Thanksgiving, the two weeks of Winter Break, the week of Spring Break or Memorial Day. All school holidays, Winter Break Camp and Spring Break Camp require separate sign-ups.
The Park District provides bus service for students from Wilmette public and parochial schools. District 39 buses children attending Highcrest and Romona Schools. Please contact their Transportation Department to arrange for bus service. Parents of Romona students eligible for reduced tuition must provide verification of paid bus service from Romona School to the CRC.
A $200 deposit is required at registration and is non-refundable after June 1. Withdrawals prior to June 1 are subject to the standard Park District 10% service charge, applicable on the deposit. Fees are paid in nine equal payments, due on the 20th of each month, with the first payment due by August 20, 2015. Fees for the 2015-2016 school year are:
