Childcare Enrichment Program

Child Enrichment Program

Kids like the Child Enrichment Program (CEP) because it’s fun. Homework help, healthy snacks, crafts, and physical activity keep students learning and laughing. Parents like the program—a partnership between JCPS and the YMCA—because it provides high-quality care in a safe, familiar school environment for kindergarten through eighth-grade students.

  • Before-school care starts at 7 a.m. After-school care lasts until 6 p.m.
  • Full-day care is available on holidays and other days when there’s no school.
  • CEP sites are located at more than 50 JCPS schools.
  • Financial assistance is available.

Learning Places

Many Louisville organizations (such as Boys and Girls Clubs) have partnered with JCPS to provide Learning Places that offer after-school educational programs.

Other organizations (such as the Louisville Science Center) offer Enrichment Sites, which are great places to visit for fun, educational visits.

Other Programs and Services

Referrals for childcare are available through Family Resource and Youth Services Centers (FRYSCs). Plus, many schools offer Extended School Services (ESS), which provide extra instruction to help with classroom work. ESS Programs take many forms, including before- and after-school instruction, Saturday activities, and summer programs.
