The City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department has opened registration for its After School Program for the 2017-2018 school year that begins on September 5 and will hold open houses for two other programs.
The program costs $5 per week per child and is offered at select elementary schools in the El Paso and Ysleta Independent School Districts. Parents may register children ages five through 12 at any City recreation or senior center.
The program starts September 5, with hours from school dismissal to 6 p.m. A healthy snack is served on a daily basis.
The After School Program is designed to keep participants in a safe and fun environment by providing homework space, table games, sports activities, arts and crafts, and much more.
This particular program operates with the support of the Braden Aboud Memorial Foundation.
Officials also invite the public to learn about two other daycare and pre-school services provided at Veterans Recreation Center (5301 Salem Drive | (915) 822-8859 ) and the Galatzan Recreation Center (650 Wallenberg Drive | (915) 842-8754 )
Each location will host an open house at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Friday, August, 18.
Both recreation center locations have competitive rates, and residents may be eligible for discounted rates.
The hours of operation for the daycare are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. In addition, there is a pre-school program from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Registration is now open for both programs and applications will be taken on a first paid basis.
