Before/After School Care

Extend your child’s learning experience through discovery, social interaction, and fun during the Explorers Club offered at the Brandon Campus.  Explorers Club is a program at Bell Shoals Academy at the Brandon Campus designed to help parents who need care for their children on a regular basis beyond the hours of the school day. Explorers Club offers supervision and a variety of enrichment activities for children from our Early Learning Center through 8th grade.

Families may choose part time care (1 to 3 days per week) or full time care (4 to 5 days per week).  Daily activities include homework time, snack time, supervised free play, crafts, and organized games. *Snack is not provided.

For safety and staffing requirements all enrollment intentions must be pre-scheduled.

Hours of Operation: 6:30 am – 8:00 am – Before School Session
3:00* pm – 6:00 pm – After School Session

The program operates every day that school is in regular session. When Bell Shoals Academy is closed, Explorers Club is also closed unless otherwise notified. Explorers Club is available on early release days from dismissal until 6 pm.

* Students who are dismissed from their Academy classes before 3:00 pm will receive supervised care beginning at their Academy dismissal time, i.e. 2:20 pm, 2:30 pm, 2:45 pm.

Pick Up Phone number: 813-454-0733

For your convenience we offer care for those times when families need just one day of before or after school care instead of an entire month. Day of care needed must be paid at least 24 hours in advance.
