General Program Information

If you are interested in services, please complete the Online Interest Form so we can capture information and contact you when registration opens. Individuals using this form will be given one week of priority access to ensure space is secured for their families.

Opening Date: School-age Before- and After-School Care will begin on the first school day, September 3, 2024. Because of the licensing process, the program may open unlicensed for a brief period. Until the initial provisional license is achieved, we cannot accept the Working Childcare Connections Subsidy. For families enrolled in the WCCC program, we will honor your monthly co-pay as the only payment required to ensure a smooth transition for your school-age child and family between existing services and the new services provided by Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County.

Hours: Opens at 6:30 am. Closes at 6:00 pm. Transportation to/from school is provided by the Anacortes School District. There is no additional charge for scheduled early release or late start days.

Tuition/Dues/Fees: More information is available in this document.

Discounts: A maximum 10% Discount is available for Families with Multiple Children enrolled in Club programs or Families with at least one parent who works for the following: any branch of the United States Military, Anacortes School District, City of Anacortes, Island Health, Anacortes Family Center, or Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County.

Future Expansion of Services: Services for Infants, Toddlers, and Preschool children will open as classrooms become licensed and staffing is secured. Based on the census of requests from our Online Interest Form, our current priority will be services and programs for Toddlers, followed by Infants. Families with Preschool students should contact the AFC Discovery Center at 360-545-9544.

All Club Programs are CLOSED the week of August 26th for Training and Health, Safety & Hygiene protocols.

Students will be offered breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack daily.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County will have no cap on the number of families participating eligible for WCCC/DCYF Childcare Subsidies.

Program Design Strategies

Our purpose is to educate young members in an atmosphere designed to build self-esteem, confidence, and personal achievement while promoting respect for others in a positive environment. We aim to foster a natural love of learning in both group and individual settings that equip each child to reach their full potential as a productive, responsible, and caring adult in the community in the future.

Creative Curriculum by Teaching Strategies has been adopted for implementation and is a benchmark for wrap-around programs, activities, and family engagement strategies nationwide. Through regular individual assessments, classroom teachers can scale and scaffold each child’s learning experience to accelerate their mastery of developmental standards.

A state-of-the-art, secure facility with large classrooms offering lots of natural light will ensure students thrive in an environment regularly and purposefully integrating Music, The Arts, STEM, and all manners of creative discovery and inquiry. Because of limited outside space, regular trips to area parks and the Anacortes Boys & Girls Club gymnasium will occur and be augmented by intentional field trips in the community. Regular transportation will be provided by Thomas Minotour vehicles meeting Multi-Function School Activity Bus standards and include integrated child seats for additional layers of safety.
