Our Before/After Childcare program hours of operation start at 6:30 AM and end at 6:00 PM. The program is designed to be a safe and stimulating environment for students whose family situations or schedules require childcare before and/or after school. Our program is supervised by staff members and support staff who have been through an interview and training process as well as a background check. All K-5th grade students who attend Dixon Road are eligible to attend.

Our program is successful because our staff, students, and parents work as a team to closely follow the rules, policies, and guidelines of the program. Please be sure to discuss the importance of following the rules with your child.
Dixon Road Elementary's rules and all aspects of the JCS code of conduct will be enforced (please review the student handbook). Any behavior issues will be discussed with parents. On the 3rd offence, the student may be dismissed from the program.
All parents will be required to leave updated emergency contact imformation and any medical concerns with our staff.
Aftercare students are to be picked up in the cafeteria. Parents must come inside the building to receive their children.
Please do not drop your child off to the school after 8:20 AM or pick your child up before 4:15 PM due to buses and carpool loading and unloading students during this time.
There is no after school care on early release or early dismissal days (including inclement weather). We follow the JCPS student calendar and our program only operates when school is in session.
If there is a weather delay, before school care will open with a delay as well. (2hr delay we will open at 8:30 AM.)
Please send a snack with your child in the afternoon. We do not provide any food.
Students may attend school breakfast at 8:25 AM once the bell rings for school to open.
The preferred method of payment is the online payment portal K12 Payment Center.
