The After-School Program includes snacks, homework time, arts, athletics/wellness, recreational outdoor activities and quiet time. Professional recreation staff supervise the children. The staff-to-child ratio is about 1:10.


Huntsville Parks & Recreation will follow guidelines and best health practices as recommended by the Alabama Department of Public Health.


Each child will be checked in upon arrival and must be checked out by an adult listed on the registration form. If someone who is not listed on the form comes to pick up a child, the parent/guardian will be contacted to ensure the individual has permission to take the child.


Parks & Recreation does not provide transportation from the schools to after-school care; however, some public schools do have busses that drop children off at select centers. Please contact your school to see if this is an option.

For more information, contact the Parks & Recreation main office 256-564-8026 or call your preferred recreation center.
