About Before School Care:
For families who need an early drop-off option, The Connection is now offering Before School Care!

Students will start their day at The Connection with a light snack, board games, and crafts before they are bused to their school. Transportation will be provided to all Summit Elementary Schools and Primary Centers.

Holidays, Vacation & Single-Session Days
Held at The Connection and available only for children enrolled in any of our Before & After School programs.

  • Single-session 12:30 – 6:00pm
  • Full-day 8am – 6:00pm

Space is limited and is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Transportation on single- session days at 12:30pm is provided from the Summit elementary & primary schools.

For single session days, you may have to place yourself on a waitlist. This is in order to manage the bussing from each school. Before each single session day, you will be contacted if there is availability and to confirm you still need coverage.

Unscheduled closings: The Connection does not provide childcare if the Summit primary centers and elementary schools are closed for any reason including snow days or delayed openings.
