We are proud to offer a Surround Care program open to Swansea children enrolled in pre-k through grade 5 at the four elementary schools. The Gardner & Luther Schools are used for before school care and are open at 7:00 A.M. for drop-off. The Hoyle & Gardner Schools are used for after school care and close at 5:30 P.M.

All students attending morning Surround Care will use these two schools and be bussed to their appropriate school by the school system. Students attending afternoon Surround Care will be bussed to their appropriate school by the school system at the end of the school day.
Surround Care will be run the 180 days that school is open. It will not run during school vacations or holidays. There is NO Surround Care if there is a morning school delay. An automated call will be made if there is an early dismissal - please call the school to let them know how your child will be getting home.
Special half day Surround Care Programs during Parent/Teacher Conferences are a separate program and require
separate registration. Forms are sent home at the beginning of the school year.
This program is run in coordination with the schools but at no cost to the Swansea Public Schools. The program and its employees are funded through fees paid by parents/guardians who chose to take advantage of these services.
Fees for this program must be paid on a monthly basis between the 15th & 30th
of the previous month of service. ( I.E. Payment for Sept. is due by August 15th with registration, Oct. payment is due between Sept.15th & 30th, etc.) Bills will not be sent.
Please utilize the payment books given to you.
No more than two (2) late payments will be allowed throughout the school year.
Any subsequent late payment constitutes immediate termination from the program.
Parents can choose from three options before-school care, after school care, or both. The fees are as follows:
Before-school care (7:00 A.M. until school opening) $8.00/day
After-school care (end of school until 5:30 P.M.) $8.00/day
Both before & after school care $15.00/day
In order to hire appropriate staff for the year, the schedule that you chose for your child must stay the same for the entire school year. A school calendar has been attached for your convenience. Please note that children will only be released to their parents/guardians or anyone listed on the pick-up list located on the emergency information form.
