Downingtown Area School District

Since 2015, A Child’s Place has partnered with the Downingtown Area School District to provide extended-day child care in all ten elementary schools as well as the Marsh Creek Sixth Grade Center.

Our Before- and After-Care Programs offer a comfortable setting where students have time to explore hobbies, play games, and participate in a wide variety of activities. We create a safe, supportive, and engaging atmosphere where exploring and play go hand-in-hand. In addition, our After-Care Program includes time for homework, outdoor play, and organized and independent activities.

A Child’s Place also provides a unique opportunity to extend your kindergartener’s half day with the district. In our Kindergarten Enrichment Program, we will complement your student’s half day to create a full day of learning. Each program is staffed with a certified teacher and teacher’s assistant to ensure an involved educational experience that parallels the district curriculum.

We create a structured routine, while allowing plenty of time for students to explore their own interests and develop their social and emotional skills.
