Panther Kids After School Program
NOTICE regarding 2020-2021 Panther Kids registration:
All of our campuses are full at this time for after-school care. Families are welcome to apply for the current school year through January 31 but will be on a waitlist until space opens in the grade level needed. Registration for the next school year begins in the spring.
Sometimes space opens prior to the school year beginning, sometimes during the year, and sometimes no space opens in the grade level needed. Those families on the waitlist do get to apply the following year prior to open registration for a better chance to secure a spot in the program. But, since space is limited each year, there is no guarantee. The non-refundable, annual application fee is $25.00 per family.
Applying automatically places your child on the waitlist.
If using a smartphone or IPad, click on "Switch to Desktop Version" or "Full Site Version"
before logging in or creating an account.
WAIT LIST: If no spots are currently available for your child's campus/grade level, your application will automatically go on the wait list for their campus. When we have an opening for your child, you will receive an email asking if you are still interested in your child being enrolled in Panther Kids; You must respond within 3 calendar days. Applications are reviewed in the order they are received.
Elementary students must be picked up by 5:30;
Intermediate students by 5:45 p.m.
Space is limited per grade level; applications are reviewed based on date of registration and availability.
Submitting an online application does not ensure a spot in the program. An automated email that your application was received ensures we have your application.
An enrollment email will be sent to you if your child has a spot in the Panther Kids program.
Panther Kids is an after-school childcare program that operates each day school is in session serving students in grades Pre-Kindergarten - 6th grade at their respective Midway elementary or intermediate campus. Each day, once students are accounted for, groups transition through various stations including snack, outside playtime (weather permitting), gym games, 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 an assistant director; Panther Kids’ staff includes college and high school students who work with children at a 1 to 12 ratio; adult station leaders facilitate groups at a 1 to 24 ratio. Staff members are CPR & First Aid trained. There are no nurses or specialized personnel during the after-school program.
Children must be able to interact in positive ways with other children in large group settings while being monitored by high school and college staff; children are expected to be respectful, stay with their group, follow safety procedures (including proper mask wearing), and take direction from all Panther Kids staff members.
Panther Kids is self-funded through fees paid by the parents and guardians of children enrolled.
Registration fees and tuition must be paid online by credit card or e-check. Payments will not be accepted at the schools.
