Before Care at Payne

Flex Academies, a leader in safe, fun, enrichment program management, announced that it will launch a before-school care program for students at Payne Elementary School. Payne is a Washington D.C. school serving students in pre-K through Grade 5.

“As a parent of a child in DCPS, I know that life moves fast here and schedules change quickly,” said Flex Academies Founder and CEO Joshua Chernikoff. “Sometimes parents need to be on the job before the school day begins. They need a reliable partner in their children’s care, and we aim to be that.” 

Experts often cite benefits of before and after school programs, including opportunities for children to interact with their peers in a different setting. Chernikoff says that the Flex Academies before-care program will focus on safety and fun, putting parents’ minds at ease while offering young students a positive way to start to the school day.

Parents who set up an account with the program will be able to take advantage of drop-in care, as needed. There will also be familiar faces at Payne Elementary’s before-care program, as Flex Academies plans to staff the program with some educators already at the school.
