One of the most convenient features of our school is having additional on-site childcare available for enrolled students for those times when parents have luncheons, doctor’s appointments, etc.. and need the children to come to school early, stay late, or come for care on a day when they normally aren’t in class.
The Extended Care Room is open from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and is available with 24-hour advanced reservations (no ‘spur of the moment drop-ins’ since we must work continually to maintain an adequate staffing ratio).
Students (those not enrolled in the ‘whole day’ programs) will pay hourly rates after any contracted hours have passed (i.e., a ‘whole day’ child may stay at school from 8:30 am until 3:30 pm paying no additional charges, but should they need care before 8:30 a.m. or after 3:30p.m. additional hourly charges apply.)
The Extended Care program is available to the MDO-2 students and up. We do not take our MDO-1’s toddlers because of the large gap in ages of children in care and the desire to offer a quality environment.
Hourly care is available
@$4.50/hr. in ½hr. increments.
A $5.00 non-cancellation fee will be charged for those who reserve space and do not show the courtesy of notifying us if that has changed.
A bill for the use of hourly extended care is given after the month concludes. The statements can be sent out. During the last two weeks of school in May, extended care will be on a "pay as you go" basis.
Flat Rate Care
$595/mo. 6:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Monday-Friday as needed
Children who need extended periods of care due to parent’s work schedules, etc. and are enrolled in educational programs in the MDO-3’s and above at Grace Lutheran may participate in a flat rate care rate of $525/month (this includes tuition & care from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. as needed but does not include meals or snacks. This will be provided by the parent by bringing from home and/or purchasing lunch and/or milk cards, etc. to meet the child’s needs)
Lunch (includes milk)
1 meal : $3.50
5 meals : $17.50
10 meals : $35.00
Milk Cards : $5.00 (10 milks)
