Before and After School Childcare

Before and after school childcare in the Mansfield PK-4 schools is provided through partnerships with outside programs.
At the Dorothy C. Goodwin Elementary School, programming is provided by the Mansfield Before and After School Program. This program was formed in 1981 by a group of concerned individuals responding to an expressed need in Mansfield for competent and convenient after school care. For more information, contact Director Bev Seiler at 860.429.8476.
