JURASSIC Program at Bowe School
The JURASSIC Program at Bowe School is our new 21st Century Community Learning Center Afterschool Program for 4th through 6th graders and we are happy to announce that the afterschool program is free to all students, each day, for 3 hours, every day school is in session. Currently the program runs from 2:00pm-5:00pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday in person at Bowe School. Wednesday programming will be offered virtually or off site occasionally in the community.
School is dismissing at 12:30pm each day on the hybrid schedule with some additional virtual learning continuing in the afternoon, so if you would like your child to attend from 12:30-2:00pm (have lunch and get additional virtual learning support, we can provide that for all of our families at a rate of only $15 for the two days ($7.50 per day) after their live cohort day.
On the days your child is NOT in school, we can provide full day virtual support, and then free afterschool. Virtual learning day is from 7:45am to 2:00pm, and then our free afterschool program is from 2:00-5:00pm The fee for these virtual learning days is just $40 for the two days ($20 per day).
If you'd like to enroll your child with us for the entire 4 days, to provide virtual learning support AND afterschool care in our JURASSIC 21 CCLC program, you will only pay for the the virtual learning support and that fee is $55 per week. There is a $50 registration fee for the virtual learning support program. No registration fee for the 2:00-5:00pm 21CCLC program.
We will provide 1:10 supervision, all of the necessary school supplies, breakfast, (school provides lunch or you can pack) and a healthy afternoon snack. Our JURASSIC program is completely funded and anything that happens afterschool is free. Our partners are the Glassboro School District, the Fossil Park at Rowan University, the Bullock Garden Project, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Southwest Council.
Currently, if you'd like to have your child participate in the virtual learning support and child care that is not part of our 2:00pm-5:00pm JURASSIC 21CCLC free program, you can apply for special school age child care subsidies available now through December 31 here:
Families are eligible if they earn less than $150,000 per year. If a family does not meet the eligibility requirements of the child care subsidy and is eligible for free or reduced meals, we will waive the live cohort day fees for child care (12:30-2:00). It is our intention to support as many families as possible!
