Gardner/Brown Surround Care
Dear Swansea Elementary School Parents / Guardians,
We are proud to offer a Surround Care program open to Gardner/Brown Elementary School children enrolled in K-5, held at the Gardner School. Program hours are as follows: 7AM-8:30AM and 3:30PM-5:30PM.
*Brown school students will be bused to Brown school at around 8:00AM and bused to Gardner in PM after dismissal. Please provide a snack and drink.
Parents can choose from three options:
1. Before school care, 7am until school opening ($8/day/child)
2. After school care, school dismissal until 5:30pm ($8/day/child)
3. Both before and after school care, ($15/day/child)
Tuition for this program must be paid monthly between the 15th and 30th of the month prior to service. No child will be registered unless ALL ITEMS are received. Make checks payable to: TOWN OF SWANSEA example: Payment for Sept. is due by Aug. 15th with registration; Oct. payment is due between Sept. 15th & 30th. NO CASH PLEASE! Bills will not be sent. Utilize the payment schedule given to you. Policies apply to late payments or insufficient funds. Surround Care will run the 180 days that school is open. It will NOT run during school vacations or holidays. There is NO morning Surround Care if there is a morning school delay. An automated call will be made if there is an early dismissal. Please call the school to let them know how your child will be getting home. There are seven special half days of Surround Care during Parent/Teacher Conferences and Teacher Professional Development days. The half days require separate registration and payment. Forms will be sent home in time to register your child(ren) for those days. In order to provide appropriate staff for the program, you must keep your child’s schedule relatively the same throughout the year and communicate your child’s schedule with the Program Director as well as your child’s teacher. Please note that children will only be released to their Parents/Guardians or anyone listed on the Emergency Contact form. A photo I.D. is required.
