Students enrolled in our before and after care programs from Davenport, Miller, or Alder Avenue Schools will recieve transportation provided by the Egg Harbor Township School District.

Until such time, there will be a transportation fee of $5 per session per child.
AM Sessions = $7 PM Sessions = $10 Abbreviated days = $25
Full Days = $60 per day for Before & After Care Members
$75 per day for non Before & After Care Members
Last minute, AM drop in rate - $20.
