Welcome to the Fort Discovery school-age program.  The Fort Osage School District opened the Before and After School Childcare Program in 1984 at Elm Grove School . The school district now operates five " Fort Discovery " before and after school programs at the elementary level.

It is the goal of this program to provide working parents with the confidence that their student is in a safe and nurturing environment. The program will provide activities that support the ever-changing social, emotional, and physical needs of the student. Activities will include homework time, tutoring, service learning projects, cooperative sports, creative arts, computer utilization, and special interest activities.

Fort Discovery centers are open Monday through Friday from 6:00a.m.until the start of the school day and from the end of the school day until 6:00 p.m.

Our programs are open on early dismissal days, as well as all other days that school is dismissed for parent/teacher conferences, staff development, snow days, and most holiday breaks. Fort Discovery is closed during Winter Break

Fort Discovery encourages communication between the center and the parents.  Please let us know how we can serve you.
