 Fall & Spring Before Class Care – 3:15 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.
FPD students who are participating in a Center for Discovery class at 3:45 p.m. are invited to participate in a complimentary snack period in the FPD Media Center before their class begins. This care and snack is provided at no additional charge for FPD parents who have students enrolled in a Center for Discovery class that day. Please note – for classes beginning later than 3:45 p.m., parents will need to pick up their student after school or enroll them in FPD’s Extended Day. Before Camp Care is only provided until 3:45 p.m. and only for students who are enrolled in Center for Discovery classes on the day of care.

Before & After Camp Care
FPD understands that sometimes a few extra hours are needed before and after summer camps. To assist busy parents, FPD offers Before & After Camp Care. Parents only pay for the hours their child(ren) attend, not an entire day. For more information, download our information sheet.
