LINC Before & After School program

Overview

LINC provides affordable high quality before and after-school care for elementary school age students in a safe, fun and caring environment that supports children's social, emotional and physical development.

The program encourages children’s growth through recreational and academic activities including homework help and a healthy snack.

LINC before and after-school programs are fully-licensed and directed by LINC staff which are state-approved to operate the program.

All LINC staff at school sites pass health and annual legal background checks and are trained in CPR.

The program focuses on youth development, academic achievement and parental engagement.

Weather-Related Closings

When schools or school districts are closed due to inclement weather, there will be no LINC Before & After School programs.

Cost

There is no enrollment or program fee.

This is the most affordable school-age before and after-school care program in the Midwest.

The LINC program serves over 6,500 children during the regular school year and also during the summer.

Hours

Morning program - 7 a.m. until school begins.

Afternoon program -  School dismissal until 6 p.m.

These are the general program hours and may vary slightly between schools. The LINC site coordinator can confirm program hours.
