Latchkey Information

The Huntington Woods Recreation Department offers dependable programming before and after-school in the Gillham Recreation Center.  We provide a safe, nurturing, and fun environment utilizing the gym, playground and classrooms, for children in all grades attending Burton School.  This State of Michigan-licensed program delivers quality care and age-appropriate activities, including ½ days, snow days and vacation days, with various planned field trips. 

LATCHKEY ENROLLMENT FEE is $65 per child.  You will receive a $5 credit for siblings, living in the same household, also enrolled in Latchkey.

PLACEMENT NOTIFICATION /WAITLIST

Due to state licensing guidelines each classroom has limited space.  Enrollment will continue until daily classroom (grade) maximums have been reached.  Therefore, some students may be on a waitlist, and we will notify families if space becomes available.

Children must be pre-registered each month for a minimum of three days per week, not including Vacation Days.

AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES PROCEDURE

Should you enroll your child in an afterschool class or activity, they will start at Latchkey and then be escorted to the class.  Your child will be returned to Latchkey after class and must be checked out by a parent.

The hourly after school rate is not reduced if your child attends a class/activity.

COVID-19

The Latchkey program could change based on anticipated COVID guidelines for September 2021 if needed. If guidelines change, schedule days and times, field trips, vacation/snow days, and number maximums could change accordingly.
