Before and After Care
ECE Before and After Care
Before and After Care for preschool and kindergarten is provided by the ECE department.

|After Care||Monday through Thursday, children will enjoy a snack (included in fee), have time outside, and participate in a quiet, Waldorf-inspired activity. On Fridays, children will eat their lunches (from home), have time outside, participate in a quiet, Waldorf-inspired activity, and enjoy a healthy snack (included in fee).
||Monday to Thursday – 3:15 to 5:30 p.m.
Fridays – 11:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

All ECE Before and After Care programs will be held on the second floor of The Barn in the Morning Glory classroom.
Sign In/Sign Out Process
For Before Care, parents MUST come to the Morning Glory classroom to sign in their children. When it is time for school to start, the Before Care teachers will then sign them out and take them to their ECE classroom and sign them in there.
For After Care, the children’s ECE teachers will sign them out of their classroom (if a parent doesn’t arrive by pick-up time) and then bring them to the Morning Glory classroom to sign them into After Care. Parents MUST come to the Morning Glory classroom to sign their children out when they pick them up.
Monthly Prepaid Rates
Payments can be given to Dee or Brittany in the Main Building. Payment must be made by the 30th of the month prior to your child attending (just like tuition).
Note: August payments will be prorated at half price and will be due on August 14. If you are unable to pay by that date, we will work with you since the program is just starting. September fees must be paid by August 30.
A three-day grace period will be given. If you do not pay for services by the 3rd of the month, you will be called to get your child, and your child will not be able to attend After Care until the fee is paid. A $50 fee will be added for any late payments.
Also note, if you do not use all of the days you pay for in the month, they will not roll over to the next month.
