The Rise Enrichment Program (REP) is an aftercare program available to families currently enrolled in The Rise School of Austin program. It is a service geared towards working families who require childcare beyond 2:30 p.m.

An Enriching Aftercare Program

Our aftercare program offers a camp-like experience with a focus on quiet and active play. Highly qualified Rise Floating Teaching Assistants guide small groups of students through engaging activities in the Rise facility, including our library, outdoor playgrounds, and indoor Little Longhorn Lab. Teaching Assistants receive the same training as all other Rise teachers in Conscious Discipline and childcare regulations outlined by the Texas Department of Family Services. 

Outside therapists are welcome to provide services during aftercare hours. Therapists are responsible for assuming care of the child during therapy sessions. All therapists must provide identification upon arrival and be escorted to the appropriate location to conduct their session. Additional paperwork is required and space is subject to availability.

Please note that enrollment is subject to availability, family needs, and child needs. We must be able to maintain a safe environment for every child. Rise reserves the right to decline enrollment if we feel the child’s needs cannot be met with the provided REP staffing and ratios. Drop-ins are not permitted.
