Delayed Start Announcement

Dear ASC Families,

September is fast approaching, and we have been hard at work planning our reopening for the fall. We are happy to report that The After School Club was one of few daycare centers that has not had a single case of COVID-19 during the pandemic. Two of our top priorities have always been to keep your children safe, and make sure they have fun! We’re so happy we’ve been able to do that so far. While we know we can continue to give them a place to go to have plenty of fun, we are very concerned about how safe we can keep them from this virus.

Reliable authorities are reporting daily numbers of positive COVID-19 cases higher now than at the peak of the pandemic prior to a vaccination being available. Children are at an increased risk of infection due to the Delta variant. Hospitals, emergency rooms and doctor’s offices are overwhelmed.

Because of these things, we have decided to delay the start of all our programs, preschool and k-5, for the time being. We think the impact of the start of the school year on our community will be very telling about how contagious this virus is among children. So, the ASC is going to take a wait and see stance. We just do not feel confident that we have the staffing and resources needed to prevent or cope with an outbreak, if this variant is truly as contagious as it seems to be. This will give us time adjust and adhere to any health and safety regulations that come through in the next several weeks without inconveniencing families. 

Although, we do not have an exact start date to give you at this time, we wanted to assure you that we are doing our best to keep up with information and are very focused on how and when we can move forward to provide the best and safe care for your children.

This was such a hard decision for us to make. We know you count on us, and we want to be reliable for you, but we just cannot risk the health and wellness of your children, your families or our staff.

All children currently enrolled for the fall will still have their place in the program when we reopen. We will keep you informed as we move forward. We will be reevaluating where we stand mid to late September.  Be sure to subscribe to the website and check our website,, regularly as we will use that platform to update our families as a whole. 

We hope we will see your student as soon as we can but we understand if you have to make a change before then for your family- but please keep us updated with your enrollment status. This is especially important for preschool because we have a wait list for this program. 

We appreciate that you trust us to care for your amazing, precious children and we can’t wait to see them and watch them explore, learn and grow.

Please keep in touch with us and we will do our best to keep you informed as well.

Lori, Kasey and Amy
