2019-2020 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 2:40 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 an additional fee for the full-day programs. There is no program on Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, the Friday after Thanksgiving, the two weeks of Winter Break, the week of Spring Break or Memorial Day. 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. Wilmette Public Schools District 39 provides bus service for children attending Highcrest Middle School and Romona School. Please contact their Transportation Department to arrange for bus service. Parents of Romona students are eligible for reduced tuition.
A $200 deposit and payment information is required at registration. Fees are paid in nine equal payments, due on the 20th of each month, with the first payment due by August 20, 2019.
