Hickory Creek’s Extended Day Program

Before school care begins at 6:30am until the start of the school day. After school care begins at the end of the school day until 6:00pm.

To attend Extended Day, please contact Mrs. Southworth to receive Registration Forms & to see if there are any openings for a particular grade level.  Extended Day is so much fun that we do have wait lists at times.  Please note, there is a non-refundable $75 Registration fee per child.  These monies go towards all the great crafts, games, and equipment that is solely for Extended Day use.  Please see the Schedule of Fees for service dates.  FL Law requires pre-payment for all extended day services.  Payments are due on the 1st of the month.
