Latch Key

A fun and exciting place for children kindergarten through grade 6 to receive care while enjoying outdoor activities, indoor play, crafts, and gym games.

At our School Age Care program, children are well supervised by qualified staff with years of experience. Children enjoy outdoor activities with access to playground equipment, ball field, and grassy play area. Indoor play includes crafts, creative play, computers, Wii, and a gym for games and activities.  Staff are CPR and First Aid certified.

Join us all day in the summer and on in-service and school vacation days. During all-day Latch Key, breakfast will be provided at 8:30 each morning and there will be an afternoon snack. Children must bring a bag lunch. Milk will be provided.


Registration for SUMMER LATCH KEY typically opens March 1. As we face another summer of likely needing to operate under some continued restrictions due to COVID-19, we have a few things still to determine before we can open registration.

If you want to enroll your students in Summer Latch Key, please complete this survey/pre-enrollment form so that we are able to best determine the needs for child care this summer and how we can structure our program to accommodate the most families. 

We will contact families who complete the form in the next couple of weeks to confirm if we have space available and send out a full enrollment packet and more detailed information.
