We Have the Perfect After School Care Program for You!

It's that time again when students all over South Florida are going back to school and getting acquainted with new teachers, new friends and even new schools!  For most teachers, the Summer recess seemed more like a 2-day recess, but for many parents the school year could not start soon enough.


Although, we cannot deny the fact that we will face more traffic, longer commutes and, let's 

not forget the home projects; it is nice to have the kids back into their regular routine.  But if you are worried about what to do with your child when the school day ends, fear no more!  The Village of Palmetto Bay's Parks & Recreation Department has a full line up of enriched and specialty after school programs for children between 4 and 11 years of age.  Palmetto Bay has partnered with 7 different providers to bring a variety of after school programs to Coral Reef Park that include sports, art, science, nature, and more!  Our programs are sure to delight your children, keep them engaged and offer them a new learning experience.  Check out our " After School Programs" page for more details.
