Academic Support Programs

  • KidSpace Extended Day Care, Early Childhood Development (ECE) and School Break Camps

    Heather Whiteman, Program Coordinator - 602-896-6971,

    The Washington Elementary School District is proud to offer high quality licensed before and after-school childcare for K-6 students at 23 locations and ECE programs for 4-year-olds at 7 locations. We also offer camps during school breaks. Quality care is essential to children’s development. KidSpace provides high quality, school-age care while supplementing learning. The program is developmentally appropriate for students in preschool through sixth or eighth grade and is supported by the community through tuition paid by parents, subsidies from government agencies such as DES and grants.

    The KidSpace school sites operate under specific health and safety regulations by the Arizona Department of Health Services. Rates and registration forms are available at your child's school office, by calling 602-896-6968, or click HERE to view online details.

    Facility Use

    The Washington Elementary School District believes that the public schools are owned and operated by and for its patrons and that the schools become and integral part of the community in terms of its intellectual and social expression and development. To this end, the Governing Board encourages the public use of school facilities in accordance with applicable laws and District policies and regulations with first consideration given to the needs of the sites within the School District.

    The 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant has served more than 4,000 students annually over the past 18 years. This project affords WESD students and their families the opportunity to participate in no-cost activities and programs that extend their learning beyond the school day hours.

    The grant's primary objective is to provide academic interventions in the areas of reading and math to targeted students in need of the intervention. Additionally, the 21st Century Community Learning Centers offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities, such as youth development activities, drug and violence prevention programs, counseling programs, science, art, music, and recreation programs, technology education programs, youth development, and character education programs that are designed to reinforce skills.
