After School Care
Rogers Public Schools offers after-school care at a minimal cost for working families at most elementary schools (except Garfield). Kid's World provides a safe and wholesome environment where students in kindergarten through fifth grade can be creative, have fun and have additional learning opportunities after school.
The after-school program is available at most of the elementary schools in the district until 5:30 p.m. (After-school care is currently not available at Garfield Elementary due to too few families needing the service.)
