BEFORE & AFTER CARE

 ELC BEFORE & AFTER CARE

Bethlehem Lutheran ELC offers before and after care to meet the needs of working parents and busy families, while providing a safe and fun social opportunity for students ages 2 to 5, outside of school hours on days when school is in session. The ELC staff provide an engaging environment that allows students to participate in outside time, free play, arts, crafts and games. Parents can sign their child up for before and after care as part of their schedule, but are also able to drop in on an as-needed basis, provided that the school is notified beforehand and there is space available.

Before and after care is billed monthly with tuition and is based on the number of days in attendance:

K-8th childwatch

Bethlehem Lutheran School offers Childwatch (before- and after-school care) to meet the needs of working parents and busy families, along with providing a fun, social opportunity for students ages 5 and older outside of school hours on days when school is in session. The engaging staff provides a friendly environment that offers a more-relaxed setting than the academic hours of the regular school day. During Childwatch, students enjoy free-choice activities – games and crafts – including homework (if desired), as well as snack and outdoor recess time after school. 

Childwatch is currently billed at block rates.

To use Childwatch in the morning it is $6.00/per student. We are open 7:30 AM - 8:00 AM.

To use Childwatch in the afternoon it is $16.00/per student. We are open 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM.
