Before/After School Childcare Info

  • Community-Based Child Care Options for Before and After School Child Care

    Financial assistance may be available.

    If you are in need of before and/or after school child care we have listed some community resources that may be helpful.  As long as the program is located in your school zone, transportation to the after-school program will be provided.  Parents will need to communicate with the transportation department to arrange for alternate pick up/drop off locations.

     The list of child care programs contained in our Resource List is not meant to constitute a referral or recommendation of any specific program; nor should it be considered a complete or exhaustive list of the child care programs or providers in the local Lowell area. Furthermore, although the Lowell Public Schools makes an effort to ensure that the listings contained within the Resource List is accurate and up-to-date, it makes no guarantees that the posted information has not changed. 

     The intent behind the listing on this website is to provide convenient information; but in no way constitutes an endorsement, recommendation, or the favoring by the Lowell Public Schools or City of Lowell of any particular program(s) listed. The Lowell Public Schools does not inspect or visit the programs or providers or programs, and makes no statements as to the quality of the supervision your child would receive in any one program or with any one provider. The choice of your child’s care is your responsibility; therefore, we strongly suggest you learn more about the licensing history of the programs by visiting the Massachusetts Department of Early Education  and Care:
