Extended School Day Program

The Waretown Extended School Program (Latchkey) is a before and after school program sponsored by the Ocean Township Board of Education.

We offer childcare for students of working parents in grades K-6. We open at 7 A.M. and close at 6 P.M. Our calendar follows that of the school year. We are closed, though, for full-day in-service trainings for the staff, as well as all for all weather related emergencies, including weather early dismissals and delayed openings.
