Before and After School Care

Before and After School Care

Open Door is Orange Community Education & Recreation Department's before and after school program for students in grades K-5. This is an active program with curriculum focusing on social, educational and recreational activities. Our activities are designed to engage children in developmentally appropriate activities, including physical activity and sports, crafts and games and social interaction in a safe, welcome, relaxed environment. 

Please contact Open Door Supervisor Debbie Zimmerman at (216) 831-8601, Ext. 5606 or for information on fees and schedules or to arrange a personal meeting before enrolling your child in this exciting program. Debbie will help you arrange a schedule to fit your family’s needs. 

Daily and monthly plans are available and Open Door registration is ongoing throughout the year as long as space is available. Children must be registered and a completed registration form must be on file at least one week prior to your child's first attendance date. 
Summer Open Door Before and After Camp Care
Open Door Extended Care is an activity-based before and after camp program for campers in grades K-5 attending full day camps on campus. This includes theatre, sports, arts and traditional day camps. Open Door Before & After Camp Care is available from 7- 9am and 3 - 6pm. Children will enjoy spending time with friends, playing games, crafting, and swimming. There are flexible options
available to meet the need of each family. Participants pay a non-refundable $25 registration fee to secure a place in this program for the summer. 
Before camp, parents should bring children into Pepper Pike Learning Center to sign in and get any updates for the day. At 9 am, our staff will walk children to their assigned camp and check them in with camp staff.
At 3 pm, kids from Sports Camp, Stagecrafters, Arts Camps and Youth Camps will walk with their camp counselors back to Pepper Pike Learning Center to join Open Door and have time to relax, have a snack and get ready for new activities. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday, Open Door participants will have additional swim time from 4 – 6 pm at Orange Outdoor Pool, located behind Orange High School, weather permitting.  Pick up is at the pool Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
