Child Care

Plew Child Care

Plew Panther Before and After School Child Care Program is provided for all students currently enrolled at Plew Elementary School on a first come first serve basis as space allows, and does not discriminate as to race or religion.

The purpose of Plew's Child Care Program is to provide a safe, fun, and interactive environment that allows each child to gain social skills, as well as provide opportunities to seek, explore, learn, and grow. The program must be self-sustaining and any excess contributions to overhead realized beyond the operating expenses will be used to enhance the total Plew Elementary School program.

Please note that we are not a daycare and are closed during Spring Break, Thanksgiving, Winter/Christmas Break, and all school holidays.  We offer care for the following:  before/after school, teacher workdays, and the summer.  (Please see the summer brochure for additional information on our summer program and events).  Brochures on our summer program will be available in the spring.  You may also contact our program at (850) 833-4299 for additional information.

During the school year homework assistance is available for all students. Time is allotted for students to work on their homework. There are staff members available to help answer questions about homework and provide some assistance. Please note this is not a tutoring service and one on one attention is not always available as we have a limited staff. Reviewing your child’s homework and signing their planner is your responsibility.
