Tiger Den Childcare

Before & After School Tiger Den Program

Enrollment is now open for the 2018- 2019 school year will begin in August. Enrollment forms must be completed each year and prior to attendance.

Tiger Den is a licensed-exempt cooperative program between the Byron School & Park District, which provides elementary school children structured activities and quality care in a convenient and safe location. Tiger Den staff escorts students to school in the morning and picks up students in a designated location when school dismisses. The program is designed to be flexible and accommodate working parents; however, all individuals are welcome to participate!

It is the objective of Byron Park District to not only provide quality supervision and care in Tiger Den, but also help each child develop fundamental play, social, and communication skills. The school's positive behavior system is also incorporated into our program. Tiger Den activities include organized games, weekly theme activities or crafts, snacks, study time, and supervised free play. Various toys, board games, card games, arts and craft supplies, and LEGOS are available.
