Milwaukee Recreation offers before- and after-school care

Students on PlaygroundChildcare offered by Milwaukee Recreation is now being offered at about 50 locations across the city! Milwaukee Rec has updated and expanded its list of programs to assist families with before- and after-school care. Programs are available for students in K5 through grade 12. Sites are open Monday through Friday, and hours vary by location. All-day options are available as well as before school and after school, with a few sites open until 7:00 P.M.

Child Care Camps provide a safe place for children to take part in academic support, enrichment, and recreation. Camps are affordable and Wisconsin Shares childcare reimbursements are accepted.

Community Learning Centers (CLCs) provide academic enrichment that builds upon the school day in a safe, fun environment with positive adult mentors.

Safe Places offer educational, recreational, and social enrichment activities for youth at MPS elementary, K–8, and high school locations.

Programs are operated through community partners such as Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, Children’s Outing Association (COA), Silver Spring Neighborhood Center, and others. After-school programs have been shown to increase student achievement and promote positive relationships with caring adults.

Find an updated list of programs on the Milwaukee Recreation Before- and After-School Care web page. An interactive map is available to help parents locate a convenient site. For questions, call (414) 475-8701 on weekdays from 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M
