Panther Kids After School Program
Click here for Parent Guidelines
Panther Kids is an After-School Childcare program operated by Midway ISD. Childcare is offered each day school is in session to Kindergarten - 6th grade students on all Midway elementary and intermediate campuses. Each day, once students are accounted for, they 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. Panther Kids has a worker student ratio of 1 to 12, with both adult site directors and assistants, as well as college and high school student assistants. All staff members are CPR certified.
