REACH Program Signups begin July 27

REACH before and after school signups begin July 27

REACH signups will begin on Monday, July 27th.

What is REACH? REACH is the Washington Park Districts before and after school program where we offer working parents a safe and fun environment for children grades K-6. Children are divided by grade into classrooms at our facility at 105 S. Spruce St. We offer a variety of fun activities ranging from playground and gym time to games and crafts in the classroom. Each room is arranged with grade appropriate activities. We have plenty of workspace to complete homework assignments if needed.

Monthly plans are available from 2 days per week up to 5 days per week. We offer plans mornings only, afternoons only, or both mornings and afternoons.

REACH registration requires a deposit and/or transportation fee and the completion of the required parent’s packet available at the Washington Park District office located at 105 S. Spruce St. Washington, IL 61571. Payment for August & September will be due at registration. The program runs the entire school year.

Transportation is provided to the Park District REACH program from Central District 51 Schools, John L. Hensey, Beverly Manor, and St. Pat’s for a fee of $85. The Lincoln Grade School and Washington Middle School buses pick up and drop off in front of our building. Parents wishing to schedule children for the Park District Transportation service should register during his/her respective school registration.

An added benefit to enrolling your child in REACH is the availability and proximity to the many seasonal programs offered by the Washington Park District. In 2015, we have offered many programs available during REACH hours. We have many participants attending tumbling, basketball, volleyball, and drawing programs that occur at our facility. A great convenience for those working parents who are unable to be in two places at once.

Signup packets will be available on the Programs Tab of this website soon.

If you have specific REACH questions, please contact our program coordinator, Bianca Mullens at or 444-9413 ext. 107
