Welcome to Dryden Elementary School

The qualities of resilience and confidence are fostered in students by holding high expectations throughout their academic careers. When our students are taught to think critically and creatively using all of their resources, they tackle problems with confidence.

Dryden School Age Child Care Program

We have openings in the Before School and After School programs.

Information on Fees and Payment: 

Before school child care only is $5.50 per day/per child. 

After school child care only is $9.00 per day/per child. 

The DSACCP reserves the right to revise the fees with 60 days’ notice. 

A $50.00 non-refundable annual enrollment fee (per family) must be paid prior to starting.

A two week deposit for each child is due upon arrival on the first day. The two week deposit will be  credited to the June bill at the end of the school year, or for the last two weeks the child is enrolled.

 Parents/guardians will be billed on the 15th of each month. 

Payment is due by the end of the month. If the payment is not received by the end of the month, there  will be a $10.00 per child late fee charged. 

If your payment is not made by the next billing date, your child(ren) will be unenrolled from the  program and the slot will become available. 

Parents/guardians will NOT be charged the regular daily rate for “snow days” or other unexpected  cancellations.
