    PROGRAM INFORMATION

    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), 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 an assistant director; Panther Kids’ staff includes college and high school students who work with children at a 1 to 12 ratio; adult 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.  

    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.
