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.

 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. Signing up ahead of time is not needed for Childwatch, making it convenient to count on for planned needs or providing peace of mind for sudden needs. 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 usage is billed in hourly increments per child at a rate of $5/hourly block:

  • 7:00 – 8:00 a.m. = $5 (or any portion thereof)
  • 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. = $5 (or any portion until 4:30)
  • 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. = $10 (or any portion past 4:30)
  • 3:30 – 6:00 p.m. = $12.50 (or any portion past 5:30)
  • After 6:00 p.m. = $2/minute (late fee assessed)

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.
