More than half—56 percent—of public elementary schools in the nation have one or more after-school programs on their premises, according to a report from the National Center for Education Statistics. Those programs include stand-alone programs that provide a single service, such as day care, as well as comprehensive programs offering a combination of services. The study found that 46 percent of public elementary schools have fee-based, stand-alone day-care programs; 43 percent have stand-alone tutoring programs.
