As parents, caregivers, and students across the Brazos Valley gear up for the new school year, they should consider enrolling in the Lincoln Recreation Center’s After School Program.
High-quality after-school programs help keep kids safe, inspire them to learn, and serve as a source of support and comfort to working families.
According to the Afterschool Alliance, parents increasingly look to after-school programs to support young people’s overall health and development. However, access barriers prevent millions of youngsters from benefiting from these programs. In many cases, cost and a lack of transportation are the main contributors.
Through the College Station Parks and Recreation Department, the Lincoln Recreation Center offers an affordable program for kids 6-15 years old with constructive activities and responsible supervision by well-trained staff. The program is open to residents and non-residents, and transportation is provided from select schools.
