The WeyCare program is a safe, affordable, flexible, and accessible before and after school program offered by the Weymouth Public Schools. Weymouth's WeyCare programprovides a caring and nurturing environment for primary and intermediate school age children. Program sites are located in each of Weymouth's primary and middle schools. The goals of the program are to foster initiative and independence, cooperation and self-control, choice and the assumption of responsibility. While permitting freedom within set limits, the program encourages creativity, and provides activities that accommodate these needs while respecting cultural diversity.
The WeyCare Program includes a vacation component covering February, April, and eight weeks of summer that requires a separate application
