Before/After Care

Welcome to the Somers Point Community Education & Recreation Before and After School Program! SMILE (Students’ Morning Leisure Experience) and CASTLE (Children’s After School Time & Leisure Experience) take place on school grounds for working parents to place their children in a safe and fun environment. The program is open for students in grades Pre-K through 6th.

SMILE is held from 7am-9am daily and CASTLE is held from dismissal – 6pm daily. Each family must re-register every school year; there is a one-time, $25 registration fee for new families that is good for your tenure in the Somers Point School District.  Please make sure to read through the informational policies and pricing in the packet download below. 

***NYA Pre-K Students: We apologize, but there is currently a waiting list for both the before and after-school programs.

Attn: All families receiving Childcare Network Funding – You must have your papers ready upon registering for Smile/Castle, otherwise you will be required to purchase an attendance card in order for your child to begin.
