Before- and After-School Care
If you would like information about the on-site after-school care programs at the elementary schools, please contact the Deerfield Park District. For information about before-school care, contact the school’s PTO. Both programs have rolling enrollment, so new families have the opportunity to register their children in these programs.
Full-Day Kindergarten Information
Full-Day kindergarten is available for all registering students. The tuition based program provides students with greater learning opportunities. Half-day kindergarten (morning only) is available at no cost. Parents will be asked to indicate their session preference (full-day or morning) on the online enrollment application.
- 2016-2017 – Tuition is $2,080 per student, which includes the annual material and technology fee. Monthly payment plan is available.

Full-day kindergarten students attend school the same hours as our first through fifth grade elementary students, from 8:40am to 3:25pm, and have the same options as older students for:

Change of Address/Family Status Documents
If you move within the District (even if you move within the boundaries of the same schools) or have a change in family status, please submit the appropriate forms to the District. Please be aware that student attendance is determined by residential boundaries, so make sure to check the boundary map or use our Address Finder to see which school residents of a particular address attend. Contact Audrey Beresid if you have any questions.
