creative play, and time to relax or rest. A variety of fruit juices or milk is
served along with nutritious snacks each afternoon.
Days, Times and Fees
After School Care is available every day that the Junior School is in session, Monday through Friday except Carnival Friday.
See the course catalog or registration application for specific times and fees.
Punahou’s After School Care Program is fully licensed by
the State of Hawai`i’s Department of Human Services. The program is annually reviewed and licensed by the State. The current license is available for your inspection in the ASC Office. State licensing requires Punahou to maintain a staff to child ratio of 1:20. The ratio is often lower, as many children participate in enrichment activities on campus or are enrolled on a part-time basis and attend fewer than five days a week.
ASC staff consists of regular Punahou staff, college students, Academy students and other qualified personnel.
Escorting K – Grade 3
ASC students in K – grade 3 are escorted to and
from the following programs: Dance, Elements of Movement, HA, Karate, Music,
Tennis and Wo LACES. If your K – grade 3 child is enrolled in any other
activities (e.g., aquatics, wrestling, tutoring, etc.), please make
arrangements to have your child walked to/from ASC. Unfortunately, our ASC
staff and schedule cannot accommodate these additional activities. There is
also no escorting to Montague prior to 3 p.m. If your child is in grades 1 – 3 and
enrolled in Music, please ensure that his/her lesson begins after 3 p.m.,
unless you can make arrangements for safe escort.
