Before and After Care for Central Road, Kimball Hill, and Willow Bend Schools

R.E.C. is a Park-District-run program, which offers before and after school care for children whose parents require extended childcare. R.E.C. is a self-supporting program and is not supported financially by the school district or tax funds. Enrollment is limited. The Park District processes registrations and payments. All registrations, drops, schedule changes, refunds, and additional fees are billed through the Park District. The program is structured to be relaxed and recreational to counterbalance the educational activities during the school day. We offer quality childcare with a variety of structured and unstructured activities including: arts, crafts, sports, active fun, outdoor play and games they can play with their peers, such as card or board games. Children are also given time to work on homework. The R.E.C. Supervisor hires, trains and oversees all R.E.C. program staff while the school district houses the before and after-school programs. Each site has a Site Director who reports to the R.E.C. Supervisor. The Site Director and the R.E.C. staff are responsible for the daily program under the direction of the R.E.C. Supervisor.
