Extended Care

Extended Care

Lansing Christian School offers both Before and After Care for its families.

Schedule

6:30 am until 8:45 am (when students are released to student entrances)
3:30 pm until 6:00 pm

Extended Care follows the school calendar. It is not available on holidays, breaks, or snow days.
After care is not available on days with noon dismissal.

Cost

The hourly rate for the 2014-2015 school year is $4.50 for one child, $6.75 for two children, and $9.00 for three or more children.
Charges will be assessed on the quarter hour.

Staffing

Lansing Christian attempts to staff our Extended Care in a 15:1 student to teacher ratio.
During the 2014-15 school year, we brought on additional staff members to serve younger children (PreK - 2nd) during our busier times.

Activities

Children will enjoy a variety of activities including (but not limited to) supervised recess times outside or in the gym (when available), daily activities, creative play, reading, puzzles, computers, video, and board games. They are allowed to bring their hand held electronic games as well. If students choose to complete their homework while attending extended care, the staff will ensure an appropriate environment for study. A prepackaged snack will be provided. Parents are welcome, however, to send their own snack if the child prefers something other than what is being offered.

Registration

Enrolled families who intend to use the extended care program must complete a registration form. There is a registration fee of $20 per student or $30 per family for families that use Extended Care more than 8 hours for the year.

Scheduling

In order to maintain adequate staffing, families will be asked to submit a projected schedule indicating the days and times their child(ren) will attend the program. Communication with the Extended Care director allows for adequate staffing of the program.

Attendance

Students enrolled in grades PreK-3 through 8th at LCS are invited to attend. Children attending the extended care program must be signed into and out of the program by their parent/guardian each day. Any parent/guardian who does not pick up their child by 6:00 p.m. will be assessed an after hours supervision fee of $1.00 per minute beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Payment Policies

Because before and after care costs will be added to tuition statements it is important that tuition accounts be kept current. Accounts that become delinquent will result in the removal of the child(ren) from the program.

Drop off and Pick up

Students can typically be dropped off or picked up by the west entrance of the school. The door remains locked, but there is a doorbell to request entrance to the building. At times the students in Extended Care may be in the gym or playground. When this happens, signs on the west door will direct authorized individuals to the appropriate location.
