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. You are also welcome to pre-fill out the registration packet and bring it with you to registration to save time! We cannot accept registrations until public session on August 17th-18th.  You must be registered for the program by August 30th to begin the first week of school.

Public Registration Sessions
Thursday, Aug. 17th from 6-7pm at the Senior Citizens’ Center (22 Ambler Rd.)
Friday, Aug 18th from 10-11am at the Senior Citizens’ Center (22 Ambler Rd.)

*Please note: We strongly recommend making the public sessions, as a waiting list may come into effect if the program fills up.  The CER Office will be closed from August 18-22 to process the large volume of incoming registrations.  Our office will re-open on Wednesday, August 23rd.

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.  No CCN Paperwork will be accepted until the time of registration.
