Check in:


Your children are always welcome at our program. Parents may choose to establish a departure time for their children when the child will be allowed to sign themselves out. If you would like to let us know the days and times that your child will be attending, please feel free to call us directly at The Gulf Breeze Community Center at (850) 934-5140.


Parents or Legal Guardians will be notified via text through the KidCheck Program when their child has arrived/checked into the Gulf Breeze Community Center.


**Participants: Each child must sign-in using their parent’s cell phone number listed on the KidCheck account. The check-in/out station is located in the gym. The child will receive a wristband and will be directed to the proper area. The child’s backpack, bag, purse, or any belongings will be placed in a secure room. Children will be supervised when bag access is needed.**


Check Out:


A Parent or Legal Guardian has two options for check out:


  1. The parent or legal guardian will come into the Community Center and sign out the child and/or other approved children from the gym with the phone number listed under the KidCheck account.
  2. Without a designated departure time prescribed by the parent or legal guardian, the child will be allowed to depart at their discretion. If the child chooses to depart without parental or staff permission, he or she will not be restrained. The parent or legal guardian will be notified through KidCheck at the time of the child’s departure.


**Once a child is checked out, they may NOT return to “The Rec After School” program that day!**




The program will consist of three basic components: Social, Recreation, and Enrichment.

  1. The Social component will provide the middle school students the opportunity to eat, relax, and socialize. Staff will provide direct supervision during this free play time.
  2. The Recreation component will include structured activities for the children. The activities will vary to cover all aspects of recreation. Physical, mental, and creative activities are offered during this time.
  3. The Enrichment component will provide the children the opportunity to participate in educational activities.
