While we’re on the subject of Brookfield and recreation programming, we’re impressed that the Brookfield Recreation Department is making its pitch to operate a proposed new aftercare program for District 95 students at Brook Park School.

A newly remodeled school building coupled with the rec department’s renewed focus on providing more services seems fortuitous. The rec departments in both Riverside and North Riverside offer these kinds of services and its past time that Brookfield does as well.

There’s a real need for quality aftercare for Brookfield children, and it’s heartening to see the village and school district step up to the plate.
