Dependent Care Program (Before & After School Child Care)

Before and After School  Children residing in Highland and attending the Highland public, parachoial and private schools, K-6th grades, are eligible to enroll in the dependent care program.

We encourage you to register early as available spots tend to fill up quickly.

The program is housed in all four elementary schools during the school year. Johnston Elementary houses the program both before and after school, while the other three schools house only the after school program. 

The program is available for elementary students from 6:45 - 7:45 a.m. at Johnston Elementary School only and from 2:45 - 6:00 p.m. at the child's school on days school is in session. If your child is in middle school, he/she will be transported to their HOME elementary school for Dependent Care.


The fee for participating in the Dependent Care program is determined by the number of hours a child is scheduled to attend.
