School Year 2018-2019 Registration Information


UPDATE 5/7/2018: Based on extensive feedback from our current families, we’ve made a significant improvement to the registration flow. If you need both a.m. and p.m. programming, you will be able to select them all at once. After clicking on “Click to View Offerings” for School Year 2018-2019 Discovery Link or School Year 2018-2019 Discovery Link Grant-funded Sites, you will scroll down and select ALL the programs you want at once (including Early Release Fridays and Kadoodles, if offered at your school), and then choose your desired days on the next page.

Registration Instructions for CURRENT Families 


Registration for 2018-2019 before and after school programs at all Discovery Link sites will occur:

  • April 16th-27th for all current students, their siblings and previously waitlisted families
  • May 7th-11th for all new families

All returning and waitlisted families wishing to register will receive an email the week of April 9th with a link to enroll on the SchoolCare Works platform. Enrollment in Summer Camp or Dismissal Day Camps does NOT qualify families as “returning” families. Only children enrolled in Discovery Link 2017-2018 school year before/after programs are considered “returning”. Dates and times for in-person support at our sites and at the Acoma Campus will be posted on our website by April 9th. All returning students and their siblings are guaranteed a spot in Discovery Link if registration is completed between April 16th at 8:00 a.m. and April 27th at 4:00 p.m. Waitlisted families will then be put into any remaining spots at sites if their registration is completed in the same date and time frame.

All new families are welcome to register anytime during the period of May 7th-11th. In order to mirror the DPS Choice process, Discovery Link will then run a lottery for any remaining spots at our sites. Registration for new families is not first come, first-served. This is in contrast to previous years. As long as a new family registers between May 7th at 8:00 a.m. and May 11th at 4:00 p.m., they will be entered into the lottery.

Additional rate information:

  • Kadoodles at Sandoval and Lincoln-$17.00 per day
  • Sibling discount-10% discount for all siblings,  no discount for first child
  • Early Release Fridays Only-$25.00 per day (DLS, Denver Green and Roberts only. Students enrolled in regular Discovery Link programming throughout the week will not pay this fee.)
  • Early Riser Drop In-$13.25
  • Afterschool Drop In-$18.50
  • Dismissal/Camp Day-$38.00
  • Drop in Camp Fee-$76.00

Important deadlines for the 2017-2018 School Year

Due to high wait list numbers, the last day to add any child to the waitlist for SCHOOL YEAR 17-18 was February 27.

The last day to accept new students into a program that has room (for this school year) was April 2.

Health Appraisal

Our programs are in high demand and many of our schools have waitlists. Due to licensing and other constraints, we are limited in the number of spots available at each school. Please click HERE to understand more about our sites and waitlists.

Dismissal Days and Day-out-of-School Camps

Discovery Link offers full day camps on certain days when DPS does not have school. Dismissal Days vary by site. Please select your school or schools in your neighborhood to see when these days are offered. Registration for Dismissal Days will typically open 45 days prior to each offering and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Dismissal Days are $38.00 per day and full payment is due at the time of registration. Fees may vary based upon school schedules and hours of programming.

Discovery Link offers full day programming on most DPS Teacher Planning and Assessment days (Discovery Days) and holds full day camps during several days of the holiday breaks (Discovery Camp).

Pre-registration is required for all dismissal day and school break camps and is not included in your regular before and after school cost. Registration is taken on a first come, first served basis for these programs. Upon registration, a confirmation letter will be sent via e-mail or standard mail to confirm your child’s registration. Parents/Guardians who have not registered for Dismissal Day or Break Camps and use drop-in care for their child(ren) will be asked to complete an Information Card immediately at the site.
