WELCOME TO THE
OLD BRIDGE TOWNSHIP BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
The Before/After School program is a non-profit program sponsored by Old Bridge Township that has been providing affordable childcare for over 20 years to township residents. Please read over the entire web page. There are also links at the bottom of the page that contain more information such as cost, hours of operation and our policies. Please do not contact the Board of Education if you have questions since they are not responsible for our program.
Our program is supported by parent tuition fees only. The parent/guardian/custodian will be responsible for payment of any fees from enrollment until withdrawal from the program. All tuition fees must be kept current in order for child care services to be provided. Activities will include homework time (45 minutes to do homework in a quiet environment), organized games, special arts & crafts projects, and movies.
Breakfast will not be served in the Before School Program. However, you may send your child with a nutritious snack/meal. We don’t provide utensils, microwave to heat up food, or refrigeration. The After School Program does provide a daily snack and drink for your child.
