Panther Kids is an After-School Childcare program operated by Midway ISD. Childcare is offered each day school is in session serving students from Pre-Kindergarten - 6th grade on all Midway elementary and intermediate campuses. Each day, once students are accounted for, groups transition through various activities including snack, outside playtime (weather permitting), computer time, gym time, board games and art activities. We do facilitate the opportunity for students to work on homework, but Panther Kids is unable to provide formal tutoring. Each campus has an adult site director and assistant director; Panther Kids staff includes college and high school students who work with children at a 1 to 12 ratio. Staff members are CPR & First Aid trained.Registration fees and tuition for the 2018-2019 school year must be paid online by credit card or e-check. Payments will not be accepted at the schools.
Registration for the 2018-2019 School Year Note:
The $25 registration fee due at the time of registration covers the family annually. Spots are limited per campus, per grade level. Once your child has been enrolled into the program, you will receive an email stating that the first tuition payment must be made no later than August 1 to confirm your child’s spot. After Aug. 1, tuition must be paid no later than three days after enrollment or prior to the child's first day of attendance, whichever comes first. Failure to do so may result in losing their spot for 2018-19 Panther Kids.
Please note that if no spots are currently available for your child's grade level, your application will go on the waiting list for their campus. When we have an opening, you will receive an email that your application has been approved. Applications are reviewed in the order they are received.For any questions or concerns, please contact the District Program Director, Mindi Hulme.Panther KidsCommunity Liaison254-761-5610Ext. 1105
