Latchkey & Dynamic Ducks

Purpose

The Latchkey & Dynamic Ducks Program Staff are committed to providing quality care to the children of our community and peace of mind for parents through programs that offer a clean, safe, and caring environment where children can develop physically, mentally, and spiritually.  These programs have been operating since 1993 and are run by a dedicated staff trained and certified through Safe Sanctuaries.

 

Latchkey After-School Program

About

The Latchkey Program provides children with a fun and safe environment during the after-school hours.  Children in grades K-6 are provided with a snack and participate in activities that take place in the gym, the craft room, or outside on the playground.

School Districts Served

The Latchkey Program is available to students in the Lebanon and Joel E. Barber Schools.

Hours

When the Lebanon School District is in session, Latchkey services will be available after school from 3:15pm until 5:30pm.  Latchkey will also be available on days when Lebanon is not in session – this includes dismissal for an entire day due to weather.  If school is dismissed early due to weather, partial-day Latchkey services will be available.
