After School Program

Our After School program (AS) serves children aged 4–6 years old in Lottery Pre-k through Kindergarten. Our after school classrooms are located on the upper floor of our building. We currently provide transportation from the following elementary schools: Briarlake, Coralwood, Oak Grove, and Sagamore Hills. Schools that we pick up from might change according to enrollment.

Our buses pick up children from the elementary schools at dismissal (around 2:30 pm) and bring them back to our center. Children unload at the playground and get out their energy from a hard day’s work. Younger children go inside first, go to the restroom and wash hands, and have snack. After snack they have quiet time to do homework, read, or another quiet activity. Then they socialize and have fun! Older children come in a little later and have the same schedule for quiet time/homework, socializing, and fun. Our program provides a relaxing time for children to have fun after school. It is not designed as an academic program.

Our After School program has a monthly tuition of $450 (2017-2018). This includes most days when school is not open. On these days children can attend for no extra charge. We ask that children bring their lunch on these full days. We are open the week before school starts each August, as well as a few days before we close for Christmas, before school reopens in January, on Teacher Workdays, and on other days when school is closed. For a complete list of days we are open please check our Calendar page.

Extra-curricular classes are available for After School students for an additional charge:

  • Ballet/Tap/Jazz classes are offered on Thursdays
  • Letter Bugs, a literacy class, is offered on Wednesdays
  • Soccer is offered to AS-1 on Tuesdays
  • Spanish is offered on Tuesdays
Registration forms and information sheets for extra-curricular classes are available on the Parent Information Table located across from the Christian School office downstairs.
