After School Programming at H.D. Cooke

Information for After School Program


We have partnered with Champions for our after school programming. This means that we will need to have a separate process for enrollment. As always you will still need to fully enroll your child for next school year before you can sign-up for the after school program.

Champions is excited to offer AM programing. The program is open at 7:00AM until the start of the school day. The weekly fee is $20.00 for School Age (K and up) and $22.00 for PK (3 and 4 years old)

Kinder – 5th $60

Multi-Child Discount: 15% for 2nd child; 20% for third child
