Before/After School Programs

Before Care

Our Bearss Avenue Campus offers an early morning care program that allows parents to drop their student/s off as early as 7:00am. Students from the ECC campus can also enjoy this service at no charge.  Bussing to our ECC is available. Please contact our Transportation Manager, Dennis McGlinsey for more information about the ECC shuttle bus.

After Care

Both campuses offer an extended day program until 6:00pm daily as well as weekly special interest classes and clubs. During a child's stay in the after school extended day programs he/she will be able to participate in supervised indoor/outdoor play, crafts and quiet time, while older students will have the option to work on homework. 

Before Care and After Care Fees

  • There is a fee of $5 per hour for before school care at the ECC and after school care at the ECC and Bearss Avenue Campus. These fees are billed in full-hour increments. Anything after the 10 minute grace period is charged the full $5. 
  • Fees are charged for each child who attends before school and/or after school care.  (There is no discount for siblings.)
  • All fees for before school and after school care are billed to the family's FACTS account. 

Children may stay for before or after school care occasionally or daily, and reservations are not required.

Carrollwood Day School offers a robust menu of after school programming for CDS students at the Early Childhood Campus and grades 1 - 8 on the Bearss Avenue campus.  Additional fees for these programs are billed to the family's school FACTS account. After school enrichment programs vary throughout the years and have included Art, Chess, Culinary Arts,  Filmmaking, Golf, Homework Help, Intramural Sports, Karate, Minecraft, Music Lessons, Nature, Track & Field, and Zumba.  The ECC has offered intramural sports, cooking, dance lessons and soccer.

Aftercare activities

At both campuses, CDS uses KidCheck® to provide an online check in/check out system that improves the safety and tracking of our children.  

It is recommended that every family with students in ECC through grade 5 create an account on KidCheck. All students must be pre-registered in order to be able to attend the extended day program.


After School Clubs

Learning does not stop at the end of the school day.  Students can choose from a variety of after-school programs designed to create enthusiasm for learning while building creativity, imagination and positive social skills. These programs are offered by CDS staff and other professionals who want to share their talent and passion for their field.  

Programs vary throughout the years and have included Art, Chess, Culinary Arts, Equestrian, Filmmaking, Golf, Homework Help, Intramural Sports, Karate, Minecraft, Music Lessons, Nature, Track & Field, and Zumba.  The ECC offers intramural sports, cooking, dance lessons, and soccer.
