Having the kids back in school can make things easier for working parents, but they often still have to consider where to place children in the early morning or afternoons.
Fortunately, there are many options for before-school and after-school care.
The county Department of Recreation and Parks has programs, and many local businesses also offer care before and after school.
There are programs focused on academics, and others geared more toward athletics, dance or art. There are even programs offered by skating centers and martial arts organizations.
We'd like to hear your impressions of the care options in the area. Who has the best program? Who offers the best value? Offer your thoughts in the comments.
