ECHO (Every Child Has Opportunities) is an elementary-aged before- and after-school program located at Windsor Elementary, Snowdon Elementary, and the Wren Pierson Community Center.

ECHO is a place where children have the opportunity to explore their interests, develop life skills, social skills, and healthy lifestyles, engage in physical activities, and build meaningful relationships with other children and adults.

Program Times

  • Monday-Friday: 6:30 a.m. to the start of school and after school until 6:00 p.m. 
How to Register Your Child for ECHO
  • Complete the registration form. The form MUST be completed in its entirety. All questions must be answered. If a question doesn't pertain to your child, please write "n/a," but do NOT leave any fields blank.
  • AFTER you have submitted the form, call 509-498-9250 to enroll your child. Submitting the form does NOT enroll your child in ECHO. You MUST call us to enroll.
  • All required information must be received with complete information and enrollment confirmed by Cheney Parks & Recreation before children may attend ECHO. A new registration form must be completed every year.
