GFW Public Schools Pre K-Grade 5 Before & After School Care
T-Bird club is a childcare program for preschool through grade 5 students. Preschoolers need to be enrolled in a preschool program in order to attend. It is a safe, supervised and fun care plan for your child. The program provides structured activities, as well as time for open play and recreation. The program does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, creed or national origin in its enrollment policies.
T-Bird Club is open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. If school is dismissed early or canceled due to the weather, we will provide care for all registered children. T-Bird Club is also open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on snow days, teacher in service days and other scheduled non-school days.
T-bird Club is located in the GFW Elementary school.

T-Bird Club will be open on teacher workshop days and other days prior to or following legal holidays, numbers permitting.
