• Online enrollment for latchkey is not an option. You will need to go in person to your latchkey site during the in-person enrollment July 29 and 30. Enrollment is first come, first served. Many sites fill quickly and maintain a wait list.


    Summer 2025 Latchkey information will be available in March 2025.


    Be prepared with required information.

    • Emergency contact name, address (including zip code) and phone number.
    • Parent's employer address (including zip code) and phone number.
    • Doctor's address (including zip code) and phone number.
    • Insurance name and policy number.
    • Hospital preference.
    • If your child is starting Kindergarten, we will need a copy of their immunizations.

Wichita Public Schools Latchkey Program



    What is the Latchkey program? It's a program for children in kindergarten through fifth grade that is offered before and after school through the school year. Students have fun and enjoy friends while under the supervision of caring adults. The program is tailored to meet the developmental characteristics and needs of each individual child. Certified teachers direct the USD 259 district programs and follow the Kansas Department of Health and Environment guidelines. District sites are licensed child care facilities and 100 percent self-funded.


    Enrollment: Parents can pick up enrollment paperwork from any latchkey site but paperwork must be turned in at the site you're registering for.
