Before and After School Care
Bruderheim Community School has offered before and after school care services for our parents for the past several years. The program has been generously funded by the Town of Bruderheim. This program will continue this year with a minimal charge of $7 per session to the parents. We have a caring, responsible staff who begin each day at 6:30 a.m. and continues to 8:15 when the students then go out to play with the others coming to school at that time. The after school care begins at 3:00 and continues to 5:45. The activities over the time the students are there may include working at homework, or may include play time, gym time, outdoor activities (weather permitting), and crafts. Stop by the office to pick up a registration form.
