About the Program
Designed to serve the needs of working parents in the Skokie community, SPACE programs are held in Skokie school facilities and offer before- and after-school recreational programs. Care is available during the school year, Monday through Friday, mornings starting at 7 a.m.–the start of school, and afternoons from school end–6 p.m. (times vary based on school district). Fees include an afternoon snack and recreational and educational activities in a safe and nurturing environment. Skokie Park District staff oversee a wide variety of activities including homework help, active games, arts & crafts, outdoor play and more. Our goal is to promote social interaction, independence, self-esteem, creativity, and problem-solving skills among all children. The Skokie Park District Staff is committed to building a cooperative and supportive relationship with each family.
