The school age programs offer a variety of enriching and recreational activities, as well as restful periods at the end of the school day. Time and space are provided for children to work on homework and assignments. Activities include arts and crafts, clubs, games, cooking and outdoor play. Planned field trips and special activities are offered on inservice days and some school vacation days.

Each program is licensed through the PA Department of Human Services and participates in the Keystone Stars quality initiative program. There is an on-site Head teacher at each location, along with a staff or qualified recreational counselors. Healthy snacks are provided under the supervision of the CDFC Nutrition Coordinator.

Parents may choose one of two payment options for the year:

True Flat Rate: Parents pay same weekly fee throughout school year. School year program flat rate does not include full day care on school district inservice days, or days when school is not in session. Families who choose the flat rate for the school year will not be able to use full day care on an inservice day, without prior arrangement and paying an additional drop in fee.

Blended Rate: Covers full-day care during school district inservice days. Parents pay same weekly fee throughout school year. We have introduced the blended rate so that we do not have to adjust the bill balance on the account following an inservice day. Blended rate does not cover delays in the morning due to inclement weather. This service is provided as part of prescheduled contracted hours.

If you contract for the flat rate, and find that you will need care on an inservice day, you may change your contract to the blended rate prior to the inservice day. It will then remain at the blended rate for the school year.

Snow Policy

Care on early dismissal or delay of school days is available on a limited basis and might result in additional charges depending on the hours of care that have been contracted.

Programs will be open when the SCASD cancels school for the entire
day (AM and PM sessions).

Summer Camp

The CDFC operates a Summer Camp Program at Easterly Parkway Elementary. Camp begins shortly after the end of the school year and ends mid August. The hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Ages: Kindergarten through twelve years of age.

Counselor Assistant program is available for selected applicants who have completed sixth grade and have been previously enrolled in CDFC School Age Programs.

Summer activities include arts and crafts, field trips, swimming, clubs, and special guests.

Summer camp priority registration is available for currently enrolled children and children who attended Summer Fun Camp 2016. Please see your program head teacher for more information or email: enrollment@cdfc.org.
