DISCUSS: Best Before-School and After-School Care?

This time of year, you may need some help when the kids are getting out of school earlier than you get off work. What's the best option?

Having the kids back in school can make things easier for working parents, but they often still have to consider where to place children in the early morning or afternoons.

Fortunately, there are many options for before-school and after-school care.

The county Department of Recreation and Parks has programs, and many local businesses also offer care before and after school.

There are programs focused on academics, and others geared more toward athletics, dance or art. There are even programs offered by and martial arts organizations.

We'd like to hear your impressions of the care options in the area. Who has the best program? Who offers the best value? Offer your thoughts in the comments.

Our son has attended the before/after care and summer camps at Wheels for the last few years, and we've been completely satisfied.

My 2 kids are in their second year of before/after care at Wheels as well, and were there all summer for camp. It's a great feeling knowing that they're well cared for when I'm at work. I know they're having fun, and also know that they're safe.
