The Blue Springs School District’s Prime Time Program provides high quality before school, after school, and full-day service in a safe and nurturing environment that supports children, youth, parents, and the community. To assure sustainability, the program is fee-based with weekly tuition covering all operating costs, including field trips and special activities. As a result of being fee-based, scholarships and/or subsidies are not offered. Service is available August through May at the district’s 13 elementary schools and during the summer at designated locations. Prime Time expands and enriches learning opportunities through social, recreational, and personal life skills development. Prime Time partners with the home and community, offers a wide variety of experiences, and affords families service within the convenient confines of their resident school.

The first day of Prime Time will be August 22, 2023.
