Priority Registration Information for Current Students
Priority registration will open to all current clubhouse families on Friday, January 19 at 8:30am. Registration is on a first come, first served basis. Priority Registration will close on Thursday, February 1 at 5pm. If you are interested in returning to the Clubhouse program for the 2018-2019 school year, it is highly recommend to register during priority registration, as spots do fill up quickly. A $50 non-refundable registration payment made during priority registration holds your spot for the 2018-2019 school year.
On May 1, 2018 you will be billed for the first month’s payment of $336 for September attendance. If payment is not received by May 22, 2018 there is potential to lose your spot.
If you have another child in your household who was not a clubhouse participant in 2017- 2018 (for example: a younger sibling entering Kindergarten in 2018-2019) you may register them during the priority registration period. However, you will have to call customer service at (708) 725-2000 for assistance as they will have to manually process the registration.

About Clubhouse Afterschool Program
School’s out, it’s time for fun! During The Clubhouse, children participate in a variety of structured and unstructured activities. Indoor and outdoor learning experiences feature fun recreational activities, such as group games and sporting activities, as well as time to relax, read, do homework and participate in quiet activities such as arts & crafts and table games. An after school snack will be provided each day.
The Clubhouse follows the District 97 calendar and meets on half days. Full Days off of school are not included in the Clubhouse registration. If you are looking for child-care on those days, please sign up for our Passport to Adventure: School's Out Trips.
Only Oak Park residents are eligible for this program. Students who attend other Oak Park schools are welcome to participate, but must secure their own transportation to the program site.
