READY TO R.E.A.D.: New partnership provides an in-person child care and remote learning support program for school-age children
In response to local community needs, Bensenville School District 2, Tri- Town YMCA, and St. Alexis Parish have partnered to offer flexible options for families through their new Remote Enrichment At District 2 (READ) program for children enrolled in kindergarten through eighth grade.
READ is a resource that simultaneously meets the child care needs and provides remote learning supports that many BSD2 families are seeking for their school-age children. Its goal is to provide children with a nurturing experience in a mainstream environment that keeps them learning while gaining a sense of achievement and belonging and boosting their confidence and individual potential.
Offered at St. Alexis Parish, READ is now accepting enrollment in its part-day (7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.) and full-day (7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.) programs. Weekly enrollment fees include:
Staff with backgrounds in supporting students in remote learning environments
Breakfast, lunch, and snacks
Sports and recreation activities
Arts and Crafts
Fast Wi-Fi for devices
Child care during holiday breaks, early release days, and days off from school
Enhanced safety and sanitation practices that support a safe environment for everyone
If your family is facing financial hardship, you may qualify for Child Care Assistance subsidy.
