Message to our families: Our goal is to provide exceptional before and after care services to OFSD families in need of care for their child/children. We understand before and/or aftercare is vital to many working families. We are dedicated to successfully filling slots in an efficient manner along with ensuring a safe program for students by maintaining appropriate student to staff ratio. Families interested in Discovery Zone, shall complete the registration form online in the district Web Store. Families may be prompted to register onto a Waitlist. If a slot is available, families will receive a Registration receipt via email from the registration system (RevTrak). This receipt confirms your slot in the program and additional program information will be sent by email shortly after. Additional program information is also provided below. We strongly recommend families complete their registration ahead of time, the school year prior. For example: For the 2022-2023 School Year, please register before the prior school year ends, before the last week of May 2022. Registrations submitted later, risk more likely to be Waitlisted. 

Thank you for your support!
