FunZone is our before and after school program. We pick up from most schools in Fort Collins and bring them back to our program space for awesome enrichments and field trips. We believe in kids getting a break after school and some downtime. We have remained open and keeping families safe throughout the pandemic and will continue to be sure we are following all recommendations from local health officials to ensure things stay that way. 

Daily rates: 

Before School only: $16

After School only: $21

Before and After School: $34           

In the morning, we will transport to O’Dea, Bauder, Beattie and Kruse Elementary.


In the afternoons, we will transport from Olander, Shepardson, Putnam, Laurel, Polaris, Bauder, O’Dea, Dunn, Kruse Elementary Schools. 

  • Children registered for before-school care may be dropped off as early as 7:30 am. Children may bring breakfast or an early morning snack, but we do not provide food during this time. During this time, children will have options to play board games, build with legos, read, draw, cup stacking construction. Use of electronics are not permitted during this time.

    Children will leave to be transported to their schools at 8:15 am. Any child who has not arrived by 8:15 am will be considered absent for before-school care.


  • Children registered for after school will be picked up with one of our vans. We will work with the school for pick-up options and times. Once children are picked up, they will return to the FunZone location.

    Pick up is between 4 and 5:30 pm. 

    We do not have built-in homework time. If you would like your child to work on homework, please speak with staff about how we can make it happen and still get your child the brain breaks they might need.
