Before & After School Care


Children enrolled in the after-school program at Howard Drive Elementary are offered a variety of activities.  These activities include: homework assistance, indoor and outdoor games, arts and crafts and computer lab time. 


The program managers supervise group activity leaders previously screened by Miami-Dade County Public Schools who work directly with your children in small groups.  All activity leaders receive a minimum of 30 hours of Department of Children and Families training.


Each day a snack will be provided for your child after the end of the regular school day.  We ask that parents notify staff of any food allergies upon registration.


Upon registering your child, it is mandatory to obtain student accident insurance.  No child may attend before or after-school care programs without this supplemental coverage. This is supplemental insurance and DOES NOT take the place of family or individual medical insurance coverage.
