Latchkey Program

Latchkey is a program offered by the Ashtabula County Educational Service Center that is provided at Jefferson Elementary on days that school is in session from 6:30 to 9:30 AM and 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM. Shuttle is available to and from Rock Creek Elementary. The bus leaves for Rock Creek around 8:05 and brings back to Jefferson around 4:45 pm. Breakfast may be purchased through the school if needed, and an

afternoon snack is provided around 4:30. On 2 hour delay days, we will operate on a delay as well opening at 8:30 am. (No breakfast is available on these days.) The center is closed on all days that school is not in session.

We are located in the school library. There is an annual registration and supply fee of $25.00 per family and the rate for care is $2.50 per hour. Discounted rates for additional children may apply. Children must be registered in order to attend. Unfortunately, due to space limitations and childcare rules through the Ohio Department of Education, there is a limit on the amount of children we can accept into the program.
