Sign In/Sign Out Process

For Before Care, parents MUST come to the homeschool 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 Aftercare, the children’s ECE teachers will sign them out of their classroom (if a parent doesn’t arrive by pick-up time) and sign them into aftercare. Parents MUST come to the ECE playground (or homeschool classroom in bad weather) to sign their children out when they pick them up.

Billing and Payment for ECE Before and Aftercare

You will be billed for these services through your Jeffco Connect account monthly. Payments for these fees are due by the 1st of the month. The flat fees are summarized above.

Fees for Late Payments or Failed Payments

In addition, there will be a $50 daily late fee until payment is made. Any failed ACH and Returned Checks will be charged a fee of $30. If any of these services provided are failed to be paid by the 3rd of each month, you will be notified by phone to pick up your child before after care starts that day.
