Wichita Public Schools Latchkey Program



    What is the Latchkey program? It's a before- and after-school program for children from kindergarten through fifth grade. 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.


    Frequent Questions and Answers.


    Q. How can I enroll my child?

    A. Contact the site directly or inquire at your child's school. You must fill out our enrollment paperwork and will be contacted upon approval. This may take a few days so plan accordingly.


    Q. How much does it cost?

    A. We charge a daily rate with a two-day minimum commitment per week. You will be billed weekly according to your contracted days and are responsible for the contracted days regardless of actual attendance. Days of the week cannot be traded.
