Extended Day Care
The Extended Day Care program provides quality childcare for the 5-day school children before and after their normal school day at Christ the King Catholic School and follows the school calendar for days of operation. There will be no afternoon extended day care program on early dismissal days or on the very last day of school.
Before-school care begins at 7:15 a.m. and is located in the Preschool classroom. The children in before-school care are dismissed from care at approximately 7:40 a.m. to report to the school gym in order to meet their class or “House”. After-school care is located in the cafeteria and entrance for pick-up is on the South side of the school building at the bottom of the outside stairs. Hours of operation for after-school care are from 3:20 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. for each full school day. Parents must make advance arrangements with the extended day care staff if children are attending activities such as choir, scouts, sports, or music lessons before coming to extended day care. A pre-designated adult must sign each child into day care after these activities. Children will be released from day care only to parents/guardians unless other arrangements are made in advance with day care personnel.
Christ the King reserves the right to exclude any student who demonstrates that he/she is not able to handle the discipline or other requirements of the extended day care program. Nonpayment of Extended Day Care balances may also be grounds for denial of continued enrollment. In addition, since the effective care of students in the extended day care program depends on a strong partnership between parents and the extended day care staff, failure of this partnership could also result in withdrawal of a student or students from the program.
Day Care Prices
All families using extended day care on a regular basis should register and pay an annual $30.00 registration fee. This guarantees your child/children a spot in extended care and qualifies you for the lower per child rate of $7.50 per hour. Families who do not pay the annual $30.00 registration fee will be charged the per child rate of $9.50 per hour. All partial hour periods will be rounded to the nearest ¼ hour. There is a late pick-up fee of $15.00 for each 5 minutes or portion thereof after the 5:30 p.m. closing time.
Extended day care balances will be posted on Sycamore for individual families to view and must be paid at the end of each month in order for your child(ren) to continue to receive day care services. Payments can be made to the Extended Care Director or dropped off at the school office.
Any student left unattended after 3:30 p.m. while waiting for a ride home or prior to 7:35 a.m., will be checked into extended day care and the appropriate fees charged.
