WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Lafayette schools are prepping for their before and after school programs.

Leases were approved by the Lafayette School Corporation for their Latchkey Program.

As we previously reported, the program is run by the YMCA.

It's offered at all LSC elementary schools except Murdock.

Murdock has its own childcare program.

The Y is keeping its prices the same as last year.

Les Huddle said it helps out parents who need to chose a before and after school care program.

"I think it's an opportunity for parents to look at as in option should they not find something in the neighborhood or through one of our other community organizations," said Superintendent Huddle. 

Earhart and Edgelea offer before school programs starting at 6:30 a.m.

All other elementaries only offer after school care program that run until 6 p.m.

This is an annual program.

The Y offers scholarships to low-income families.

Here is the price breakdown for the program:

Before school five days a week is $45. For three days its $35. Two days cost $25.

After school five days a week is $60. For three days it is $50. Two days cost $40.

Before and after school five days a week cost $75. Three days cost $65. Two days cost $55
