Rec Station is a cooperative program between the Elmhurst Park District and School District #205 for kindergarten through fifth graders needing before and after school care in a supervised setting right in the child's school. District #205 and the Elmhurst Park District are committed to providing quality care for your child, working together to make the school day care transition easy and fun. Rec Station will follow along with all of Elmhurst School District #205 guidelines and policies.

Rec Station is relaxed and recreational in nature, providing a safe and fun environment. The experienced staff plans daily activities, including arts and crafts, indoor/outdoor gross motor activities, large and small group games, in addition to afternoon quiet time for homework.

Activities will be set-up to social distance participants as much as possible. However, children and staff will be considered close contact with one another due to the nature of the program. Close contact is defined by the CDC as someone who was within 6 feet of a person for at least 15 minutes over the course of a 24 hour period. If there is a positive test for COVID-19 in the program, all staff and participants will need to follow the CDC Guidelines and quarantine.

The program is held daily, Monday-Friday, 7-8 a.m. and 3-6 p.m.
