After School

After School Program Details

After 3 at BCD is a program that provides after school care and specialty classes to students who are currently enrolled and attending BCD. After 3 at BCD and is divided into two categories: 

1.) Daily after school care - After 3 at BCD
2.) After school specialty classes - Specialty Classes

After 3 at BCD

Daily after school care is designed to serve families who need after school care on a daily basis for the entire school year.
As such, families must register for the whole school year and pay our unlimited use program fees. 
  • Daily after school care - unlimited use program - begins on Monday, August 26, 2024 and is open on most regular school days from dismissal time – 5:30pm (students must be picked up by 5:30pm). Dates when the program is closed and program specifics are posted on our After School webpage. 
  • Daily after school care is not offered on a drop-in basis or at an hourly rate. However, for families interested in after school care on a part-time basis, we offer "Stay-and-Play" or "After School Hangout" one day / week (M, Tu, W, or Th) for $299 / trimester as a specialty class.
After school specialty classes are designed to meet the needs of families who do not need daily after school care - but would like their child to engage in after school activities one or two days / week. 
  • Spaces are limited and registration is taken on a first come - first served basis.
  • Specialty classes are typically offered in 4-6 week sessions. Families may sign up for the specialty class on a session-by-session basis.
  • Specialty classes are not offered for every age student. However, we do our best to provide a selection of classes that serve several ages and meet a variety of interests. In addition, we offer "Stay-and-Play" or "After School Hangout" options under our specialty class enrollment. Current offerings are listed below.
Daily After School Care - Unlimited Use - Program Cost 
  • $2,380.00/child/for the school year. This is an exceptional value - especially for families who use the program to its fullest capacity. 
    • For families with 3+ children, we offer a discounted rate of $5,820/3 children/for the school year. 
    • Families who receive financial assistance over 50%, will receive the same percentage off the cost of daily after school care. Families are required to register for the entire year. However, we will work with families who need to space out their payments.

Specialty Classes

Specialty classes are offered each trimester and are designed to meet the varied interests of BCD students such as cooking, sports, science, chess, technology, STEM, Lego™ Engineering , etc. Our after school specialty classes save parents time and make scheduling easy!

Specialty classes are not included in the cost of our daily after school care - unlimited use program fees. 
    • Families who want to register for specialty classes in addition to daily after school (unlimited billing program) must register and pay for after school specialty classes.
• Students enrolled in an after school specialty class are escorted by a BCD faculty member to their class.
• All students except those who are enrolled in our unlimited-daily after-school care program MUST be picked up on time at the end of their specialty class. We do not offer drop-in care after specialty classes end.
• Specialty classes vary throughout the year. Our 2024-25 Specialty Class Catalog is under construction. Please check back in late July for an update.
