2018-2019 School Year
REGISTRATION IS CURRENTLY OPEN
The RAH program is a before and after school program that provides transportation to and from your child's school. Our program serves children in Kindergarten through 8th grade attending Ridge Central, Finley and Ridge Lawn.
A typical day at RAH includes structured and age-appropriate activities. Our RAH program is held at the Freedom Activity Center but we do utilize our other facilities and Parks at times. The children will get involved in physical activities, crafts, socializing, field trips and much more. The children will have the opportunity to get their homework done. RAH is offered Monday through Friday until 6:00pm.
Each month, all RAH participants receive a newsletter and activities calendar. We will highlight RAH happenings, field trips, parent reminders on half days and full days and other park district special events.
When your child's school has an 11:30 dismissal we will pick your child up from their school. Please make sure you send your child with a lunch and snack to get through the day. An early dismissal session is 11:30am - 6:00pm.
Children should bring a snack everyday to refresh after school. We provide vending machines if you wish to send your child with money.
When you child's school is off or on break you can sign your child up for an exciting fun day at RAH. The children will participate in indoor and outdoor activities, crafts or may even have a field trip scheduled. Your child will need a lunch and 2 snacks. Full Day RAH is available from 6:30am - 6:00pm.
Throughout the school year the RAH program utilizes various park district facilities during each day. Facilities include Freedom Activity Center, Frontier Fieldhouse, Ball Fore, Lily Pad; as well various park district playgrounds. The RAH participants may visit the Chicago Ridge Library on some occasions. All information will be listed on our monthly newsletter.
Flexible Scheduling; your child can be signed up for different days each week as long as fees are paid in full by the Friday prior to attending. See our price Chart below.
