Day Passes

Day Passes are $40.00 per day Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday and Tuesday afternoons is $60.00 (generally, there are no spaces available on Tuesdays). The daily rate includes snacks, activities and supervision by the terrific teaching staff from arrival at program until to 6:00 pm.

There is a one time $75.00 administrative fee charged to all enrollees. This fee provides families with monthly newsletters and schedules of upcoming activities and events, as well as covering all administration costs. If you decide to sign your child up as a regular weekly participant, the application fee will be waived in lieu of this administrative fee.

Please note that the regular cost per day per month, all days except Tuesdays is $27.00 per afternoon and the fee for Tuesday is $50.00. It’s financially advantageous to be a regular enrollee in the program.

$110.00 FOR 3 PASSES (to be used Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday)

  • Passes can only be used as space permits in the program and at the discretion of the program Director, Rochelle Acker.
  • All requests should be sent directly to our email address:
  • We ask for as much advanced notice as possible to make sure we can make the accommodation. With more then 5 days notice, we should be able to honor most requests.
  • Because of scheduled trips and special activities, the program reserves the right to determine days a child may use a pass.
  • We encourage families to use their passes on a regular basis and not save them for the end of the school year when we might not be able to grant a request.
  • There are no refunds for unused passes, but your balance can be deducted as a charitable contribution to the Highlands After-School Program.

Early Release Days:

The program will honor Day Passes on Early Release Days on a first come first serve basis as space permits. Early Release fee: $60.00 with coverage from 11:30-6:00 PM.
