Before and After School Activities
Before and After School Care
Care before and after school is offered by the Skokie Park District through their SPACE program (Skokie’s Place for All Children in Extended care). This recreational program is offered for children K-5, in cooperation with School Districts 69, 72, 73, 73.5, and 68.
Designed to serve the needs of working parents in the Skokie community, SPACE programs are held in Skokie school facilities and offer before- and after-school recreational programs. Care is available during the school year, Monday through Friday, mornings 7-8:45 a.m. and afternoons 3-6 p.m. (times vary).
The low program fees includes a nutritious snack every afternoon and provides recreational and educational activities in a safe and nurturing environment. Exceptional Skokie Park District staff oversee a wide variety of activities including enrichment classes, active games, arts & crafts, music, story time, homework time, outdoor play and more. The SPACE program also provides special event and theme days, family events, walking field trips, and the option to bring breakfast to the morning program. Our goal is to promote social interaction, independence, self-esteem, creativity, and problem solving skills among all children. The Skokie Park District Staff is committed to building a cooperative and supportive relationship with each family.
