A committee says the before and after-school childcare programs at Quincy Public Schools are a success.
A pilot program for the after-school care was offered last school year at Lincoln-Douglas Elementary School.
It was such a hit with families, the school district decided to expand the childcare this school year to before and after-school at all K-5 schools.
At Wednesday’s QPS Human Relations Committee meeting, members discussed some changes to improve the program.
“Hopefully we’re looking to do a multi-family discount. So we’re going to look at the end of the school year and see if we can offer that to families for next school year,” said Stephanie Dickens, QPS Childcare Coordinator.
Dickens says they’re also looking to add substitutes to keep their staff covered heading into cold and flu season.
All recommendations now go to the full school board for approval.
