Towne Acres Elementary Educare Program



It is the mission of the Towne Acres Educare program to provide working parents a quality, supervised, before and after school program. Yet it is not a baby-sitting service, nor is it limited to working parents. The Educare program is a well-rounded program featuring several different and enriching components. The children are divided by age groups. We do homework, center activities, some art activities and have playtime.



Our before-school program is daily from 7:00 AM until 7:45 AM

After-school care is provided between 3:15 PM and 6:00 PM


A snack is served daily after school. We are open on 1/2 half days and most vacation days. Director will have sign-ups for these days 3 weeks prior to break. Please make sure that your child brings his/her lunch on these days. We also have an extensive Summer Educare program.

New Transfer Student Enrollment

Educare directors will coordinate with previous schools for transfers between Johnson City Schools to assure there is no Educare tuition debt at the previous school before enrolling a student into the Educare Program. If debt does exist, enrollment will be denied until the debt has been paid to the previous school.
