• Before/After School Child Care


    Before and After School Programs are available in the Rockingham County Schools. In the Reidsville zone, the Reidsville YMCA provides this service. In the Eden zone, the Eden YMCA provides this service. If you live in these zones, please call your local YMCA for more information.

    For the county and western zones, Rockingham County Schools provides before and after school programs through a program called the Kids’ Companion Program. The Kids Companion Program provides a safe environment for school-age children starting with age 5.  Parents interested in having their student in grade 6 travel back to a Kid's Companion Program in one of the schools listed below can do so provided a bus from the middle school returns to the elementary school.  The program gives each child the opportunity to participate in enrichment, homework assistance, and recreational activities for the appropriate age level.
