ECHO

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.

Bus transportation is provided to the Wren site for students who attend Salnave Elementary and Betz Elementary. ECHO is a place where children have the opportunity to explore their interests, develop life skills, develop better social skills, engage in physical activities, develop healthy life styles, and build meaningful relationships with other children and adults.

Note: Every day school is in session.

Class Times


  • Mornings: Monday - Thursday, 6:15 to 8:15 a.m.
  • Late start Friday mornings: 6:15 to 9:15 a.m.
  • Afternoons: Monday - Friday, 3 to 6 p.m.
Note: Early release days are included if you register your child for monthly, daily, or weekly afternoon care. If your child is registered for mornings only, then there is an additional charge for Early Release days.

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 have enrollment confirmed by Cheney Parks & Recreation before children may attend ECHO. A new registration form must be completed every year.

Additional Information

Please read the ECHO Handbook 2019-2020 for everything you need to know about our ECHO Before and After School Program.
