After-school care for kindergarten through eighth grade begins after class dismissal, and students may stay until 6 p.m. We offer Extended Care packages for families who need this service. Please contact Admissions at 423.622.3755, ext. 12 for more information.
Early morning care for Pre-K3 and Pre-K4:
Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 academic hours during the school year (Aug. - May) are 8:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Morning care opens at 6:30 a.m. After-care begins at 1 p.m. for pre-schoolers and remains open until 6 p.m. Pricing includes complete academic and childcare for $160 per week, or half-days (8:15 - 12:15) for $130 per week.
The Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 students who need to arrive between 6:30 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. will go to the two-yr. old classroom and stay there until 7:30 a.m. At 7:30 a..m, the Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 teachers will pick them up from the two-yr. old room and take them to their classroom. Please park in the back parking lot of the school and go in through the black gate that is the entrance to the toddler playground. The outside door to the left is the two-yr. old classroom for early morning care. A morning care giver will be there to greet families.
Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 students who need to stay in after care will come back from lunch to their same Pre-K3 or Pre-K4 classroom and may stay for after care as late as 6 p.m. This care is included in the tuition if parents signed up for their child to be at school beyond the hours of 8:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Lunch is included in the Pre-K tuition for the full-day tuition.
For families with K - 8th grade students who have questions about billing for morning and after care, please call the business office at 423.622.3755, ext. 13.
LATE PICK-UP POLICY:
We must respect the time of our aftercare, summer camp and caregivers in our Christian Children's Center. Therefore, we are reminding parents that children must be picked up by 6 p.m. sharp. For each minute past 6 p.m., we will charge $1 per minute, per child, payable at time of pick-up. For example, if you arrive at 6:07 p.m. to pick up TWO children, you will be charged $14 for this late pick-up. To avoid additional charges, please ensure that you are here no later than 6 p.m.
Thank you for your efforts in respecting our closing time policies.
