Antler Care

Before/After School Program 

Antler Care is Deer Creek's before and after school program. This is designed to be a fun and enjoyable extension of your child’s school day. Students participate in games, arts and crafts, and other fun activities. An afternoon snack is provided and there is time for students to complete their homework. 

Programs are located at all of our elementary schools from 6:30 a.m. - 6 p.m., and at the 4th & 5th Grade Center from 2:20 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
