Before and After Care

The Watchung Borough School District is proud to offer a Before and After School Program to our students. The Programs will run daily at Bayberry School on days when school is in session. 

During the regular school year, Before Care is available from 7:00 am to 8:30 am. After Care is available from dismissal until 6:30 pm.

During the summer programs, Before Care will be open from 7:30am to the start of the summer program at Bayberry School. After Care will be available at Bayberry School for students participating in summer programs in both schools from the end of the summer program until 5:30 pm. 

All Board Policies and Procedures, including the Restart and Recovery Plan, are in effect during Before and After Care. This may include social distancing, wearing face coverings, hand washing and sanitizing, frequent cleaning, and individual materials to avoid the sharing of items. 

During Before and After Care Programs, children will be engaged in a variety of activities, including games, arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor activities, homework time, and snack time.

Please reach out to Nicole DiTota at with any questions.
