Are you in need of childcare before or after school? We have your solution! Through our latchkey program we provide childcare for children in grades K-8 before school, beginning at 6:30 a.m. (8:30 a.m. on days we are on an unscheduled two-hour delay) and after school until 6:00 p.m. every school day. On our scheduled 2-hour delays, latchkey will still open at 6:30 am as long as we have students who are utilizing this service. Our latchkey monitor is Pam Ulrich. She has many years of experience in the latchkey programs at Tecumseh Local. The phone number to contact Ms. Pam is (937) 543-3792. (Latchkey is also available at New Carlisle Elementary from 7:00 am - 6:00 pm and at Donnelsville Elementary from 6:30 am - 6:00 pm.)
During latchkey, in addition to having time to play with their friends, we also give students the opportunity to get homework completed in the afternoons. During latchkey, students spend much time outdoors, weather permitting, and have access to the gymnasium during inclement weather. Students also have access to a variety of board games, building toys, craft materials and much more. Morning latchkey students have the opportunity to eat a school breakfast, and afternoon latchkey students are provided a snack at no additional charge.
