Students must be at least 5 years old and have begun Kindergarten to attend (due to state licensing regulations). Explorer Time Company is a state licensed after-school enrichment program that operates at each of Woodford County's elementary schools. ETC has participated with the ALL STARS Quality Program since 2010 and is currently a 2-star program. ETC has been awarded the "Outstanding After School Award" by Kentucky Community Education Association (KCEA).
Our goal at ETC is to offer a safe and fun environment for students. Daily activities include a snack, physical activity, homework time, structured projects, or exploration time in interest centers.

Explorer Time Company (ETC) after-school enrichment child care registration is open and spaces are assigned on a first-come first-served basis. Any registered children are not completely enrolled until you have received a confirmation email and the Registration Fee has been received by our office.

ETC uses a childcare specific computer billing and attendance program called SmartCare. Upon enrollment to ETC you may get an email from SmartCare asking you to set up an account.
You may also get an email containing a bill that looks like it came from your child's school. This is just test billings and you should disregard it. Please read the handout to know what to expect. Download the handout HERE.

Volunteers For 2022-23
Woodford County Schools is fortunate to have a strong and dedicated volunteer corps that assist in many capacities in all schools. Remember that there may still be some important tasks that can be completed off site that would be very helpful to teachers and staff. Please contact the individual school you wish to work in for more specific information, scheduling, forms, and procedures. If you are approved to volunteer, please access the volunteer handbook for required training. The volunteer handbook outlines policies and procedures that assure a safe and effective experience for all. The handbook can be accessed on the links section on this page. Volunteers are required to read the handbook, fill out the back page, and have it on file at each school they serve.
