AfterCare Drop-In Punch Card

$60

with Katie Way

Calendar at 3 pm

AfterCare Drop-in Passes are available for grades K-5. Due to limited space, we do not allow for Early Childhood AfterCare drop-ins. Breakwater AfterCare and Enrichment is pleased to support you with your childcare needs. Drop-ins are welcome from both Breakwater School and our Portland Public Schools contingent on space availability. To simplify this process for everyone, please purchase a Drop-In Punch card before your first drop-in. A card with your child's name and hours will be kept in the Enrichment Office and will be punched after each drop-in. We will notify you when your hours have run out. Drop-In Cards may also be used for BWS BeforeCare. In combination with the drop-in card, please contact us with as much notice as possible so that we can do our best to accommodate your need and staff accordingly: Katie Way at kway@breakwaterschool.org or 772-8689 ext. 228.

Pass Rates:

5 hours, $60 
10 hours, $115 
20 hours, $230 
40 hours, $465
