Before and After School Child Care

The Young Oaks Latchkey Program offers comfortable, supervised before and after school care that includes activities that enhance the child's physical, social, and academic growth. The Young Oaks Program works with the State Licensing Division and must meet the requirements set forth by the State of Michigan. The Young Oaks Program is not to be considered an ‘academic’ program.

Currently, sites are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:20 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, on regularly scheduled school days. Young Oaks sites include: Addams, Keller, Northwood, Oakland, Oak Ridge, and Upton Elementary Schools. We anticipate resuming a five day program when school starts in September providing that there are no state restrictions in place prohibiting in-person instruction due to COVID-19.The times will be 7:00 a.m. - 8:20 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Space is limited. 

The Young Oaks program has a site supervisor and fully trained staff at each elementary school site along with an 18:1 student-to-staff ratio. The program meets the State of Michigan Licensing Guidelines.

We are asking that all parents return any previously issued Young Oaks Latchkey Key Fobs. Damaged or lost Key Fobs will result in a $20 charge to your account. Fobs can be returned to the Addams ECC Office, located at 2222 W. Webster Avenue, Royal Oak, MI.  Our office is located at door #27, closer to Linwood Drive.

Any Fobs that are not returned will be billed after that date to the account on record.  Thank you. 

We do ask that keys be returned with the following information:

Key Fobs will need to be placed in an envelope and labeled with the student name, parent name and school name. Envelopes should be sealed with tape and not licked closed. Any envelope will work. Do not leave a Fob with no information.
