Please note: The Before and Afterschool program follows the School District of Waukesha calendar and in-school session days/times.  Any changes made by the School District of Waukesha in-session calendar may result in changes to our program offerings.

Commitment to Safety

We will follow all orders issued by our Federal, State and Local Government. The offerings, policy and programs are subject to change at any time pending Government Orders.

Cool School Recreation and Enrichment Programming

Our quality, school-age, affordable recreation programs offer a balance of academics, recreation, and social activities focusing on healthy choices in all program areas.

  • Before and After School programs are held at Banting, Bethesda, Hawthorne, Heyer, Hillcrest, Lowell, Prairie, Randall, Rose Glen and Whittier Elementary schools.
  • Before School Programs available starting at 7:00 am (6:45 am at Randall)
  • After School programs begin directly after school until 6:00 pm.
  • 4K - Early Childhood
    • Ages 4 and 5-year-olds (must be enrolled in the selected site's 4-year-old kindergarten) and up (Randall site must be in 5-year-old kindergarten and up) Programming is not available on Fridays for 4K students.  Tuition remains the same as we keep a 10:1 ratio in our 4K program M-Th.  
    • Please consider the length of day for young students in 4K and Kindergarten when enrolling in both before and afterschool programming.  We have found our younger students perform best when they participate in either before or afterschool and not both. 
    • Due to the nature of our Recreation and Enrichment Before and Afterschool program and School Day Off program activities we require all participants be toilet trained and independent with all bathroom needs
