The Royerton Latchkey Program is specifically designed for students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade with an emphasis on tutoring, enrichment, and recreational activities.  Bearing in mind the developmental needs and varying interests within this age group, the program offers a wide variety of activities that enhance the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth of children while also offering opportunity for independent decision-making by offering free choice within the structured environment of latchkey.

Royerton Latchkey is staffed by Delaware Community Schools employees.  The program provides a snack each day and maintains a safe, nurturing environment both before and after school.  Our child to staff ratio is no more than 15:1 with an energetic and caring staff to surround your child with fun activities designed to help them flourish.
