The Andover Recreation Division is proud to offer our new licensed, extended-day program for children in Grades K – 5 at the Bancroft Elementary School. Andover Kid Care is a great solution for busy working families that combines fun and learning with the safety and convenience of a high-quality afterschool program right inside your child’s school. Andover Kid Care is licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care.

There are 5-day, 4-day, 3-day, and 2-day per week options. Enrollment is limited and space will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Time of the program is right after school until 6:00 pm daily. Andover Recreation Kid Care follows the Andover Public School calendar with the following exceptions: it is not open when school closes at mid-day for a vacation period or closes early because of bad weather. Early release days are included as long as you are registered for the respective day.

Andover Kid Care operates five days a week from the end of the school day until 6:00 pm. Students from all grades will do activities together. There is time for playing sports and games, music and drama, arts and crafts, a quiet space for homework, and a caring staff. Students will also participate in special events throughout the year.
