NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2020-2021 AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

OUR MISSION

To lead, inspire, nurture and keep children educated, enriched and engaged.

OUR PRIORITY

Providing a safe, inclusive, stimulating learning environment to nurture the healthy cognitive, social-emotional and physical development of all children.

OUR VISION

To support our community's long-term and ongoing efforts for child care and youth development in the Grinnell community. We strive to expand options for high quality, developmentally appropriate education and enrichment for children and youth.

OUR GOAL

To expand opportunities provided by LINK Grinnell to address families' needs for child care and children's needs for additional educational and extracurricular options, with the development of an after-school program. LINK Grinnell is now offering after-school care until 6:30pm on regular school days, full-day care on Professional Development days and will offer summer programming in 2020! We are partnering with the Grinnell-Newburg School District to house all programming at Davis Elementary.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

We are working on plans to provide programming during the District’s remote learning period, beginning Monday, November 16, 2020.

To help us determine staffing needs under these new circumstances, please complete the survey below if you will be enrolling your child(ren) in full-day programming.

Given that the spread of COVID-19 is at an all-time high, we intend for this program to be primarily available to families for whom having children at home during the work day is not an option.

Please note: if you are not a current LINK family you will need to submit enrollment paperwork for your child(ren) before they are able to attend.
