Facility updates

School-age care update


Kids Club after-school programs return to Springfield Public Schools after spring break. Programs will be offered in three selected elementary schools: Thurston, Douglas Gardens, and Yolanda. These locations were collaboratively identified by Willamalane and Springfield Public Schools based on need, historical participation enrollment, and available space to host programs. The first day of programming will be March 29. 

Willamalane is also offering on-site Wednesday care for school-age youth beginning after spring break. The first day of Wednesday care will be March 31. Plus, spring break camps and programs are also running this year. 

Registration for all these programs is open now.  More information is available at willamalane.org/youth.
