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:

  • 1 day: $14 for before care, $23 for after care, $28 for both
  • 2 days: $28 for before care, $44 for after care, $55 for both
  • 3 days: $40 for before care, $64 for after care, $79 for both
  • 4 days: $52 for before care, $84 for after care, $102 for both
  • 5 days: $64 for before care, $104 for after care, $127 for both
  • After 6:00 p.m. there is a fee of $2 per minute.

If you need to get in touch with a staff member while your student is on site and the main number cannot be reached, please call the emergency cell phone at 720-297-4460.

 K-8 BEFORE & AFTER CARE

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 $7/per student. We are open 7-8 AM.

To use Childwatch in the afternoon it is $13.50/per student. We are open 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM.

To request a spot in Childwatch you must have all requests in via THIS FORM by the 20th of the month prior (i.e. for November have your requests in by the 20th of October).

Childwatch does not currently allow ANY drop ins. If your student drops in you will be charged double the morning/afternoon rate.

All changes made to Childwatch have been to better serve our families and staff. Please reach out to our interim Childwatch Coordinator, Grace Herrera, with any questions or concerns.

If you need to get in touch with a staff member while your student is on site and the main number cannot be reached, please call the emergency cell phone at 303-588-1321.
