WRAP Lottery Register View Cart


Due to the limited amount of availability that we have for new student enrollment for our WRAP after school childcare program, we will be changing the way open enrollment works for new participants.

Instead of a first come first serve enrollment, we will be moving to a lottery system.  Those interested in enrolling your eligible children into WRAP after school for school year 2024 – 2025 must register for the lottery online or by calling the recreation office at 781-721-7125.  There is no cost to register for the lottery, however those who are enrolled into WRAP from the lottery must pay the $50 registration fee to complete their registration.

Registration for the lottery can be done February 6th @ 10:00am thru February 13th @ 12:00pm.

Starting on February 14, we will run a random lottery draw for available spaces.  Parents will be contacted if their child/children is chosen from the lottery to enroll.  Once all available spaces have been exhausted, we will send out an email to those who we did not have space to accommodate during the lottery, informing them that they will be moved to the waitlist.  Once on the waitlist, waitlisted families will only be contacted if space opens in the program.  Please be patient as it may take us some time to move through the lottery to manually enroll students.

We understand the need for parents to have reliable childcare and that this is a stressful time.  Because we have limited space and many families looking to enroll, we felt that trying to squeeze parents into a small-time window on a first come first serve basis to register wasn’t fair to all families.  Moving registration to a lottery gives all families interested in WRAP childcare a fair chance to do so. 
If you have any questions or need help setting up an account or enrolling in the lottery, please contact us at the Recreation Department at your earliest convenience.

The Winchester Recreation Department offers an EEC licensed after school childcare program for children entering K – 6 at our WRAP program, centrally located in the Recreation Department Mystic Building at 263 Main Street. 
The WRAP program is licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care and follows the Winchester Public School Calendar. Care is provided on all early release days, as those costs are built into the monthly fees. When schools are closed for vacations, holidays, professional development days or snow days, the programs are generally closed, however there are times where we may offer additional registration option, subject to additional fees. (Vacation Programs, No School Days/Teacher Professional Development Days)

Each WRAP classroom is specifically designed and outfitted with age-specific equipment and materials for a developmentally friendly space for each grade.  The WRAP program has use of the gym, a newly renovated sport court, 2 age specific playgrounds and opportunities for children to enroll in a wide variety of enrichment programs offered at the Rec. Department during their afterschool care.  Enrichment offerings are registration based and have included programs such as art, martial arts, cooking, language learning, STEM based programs, sports and fitness, and gymnastics.  WRAP also provides additional enrichment opportunities throughout the week in their daily structure, activity-based clubs, homework time, opportunities for free and structured play, choice-based activities, early release day field trips, performers, and special events.    

REGISTRATION INFORMATION: Log into your myrec account to pay the non-refundable $50 registration fee. Once enrolled, parents must complete the registration packet and submit the packet to the Recreation Department prior to your child attending the program. First Month tuition will be charged on June 15, 2024, and once charged is non-refundable.  The remaining tuition payments will be charged on the first of each month starting in September and will cover the following month’s tuition.  Monthly payments end on May 1, which covers June enrollment.
