Elementary School

Our after school program helps elementary school children develop the social, emotional, and academic skills necessary to excel at home, in school and beyond.

Every day hundreds of children participate in hands on fun activities that teach them how to be great and give back to the world they live in. From fun fitness activities and nutrition classes, to S.T.E.M. and art lessons, our members know all about having fun with a purpose.

Regularly Asked Questions and Answers

 

Q:        Do I need to register my child(ren) in advance?

A:         Yes, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we must know in advance that your child is attending. 

 

Q:        Are scholarships available?

A:         We are using a sliding scale approach to help subsidize the expense for families who cannot afford the full fee.  Scholarships are built into ALL FEES.  There is no fee charged that actually covers the expense of the program for an individual child.  The actual cost per day to serve one child is $39.82.

 

Q:        Why are higher fees necessary?

A:         There are many reasons that the Club will be moving to a sliding scale fee structure:

 

  1. Increased general costs for operations – including mandatory sick leave, higher healthcare costs, higher supply costs
  2. Investments in training and educating staff have increased dramatically over the past several years, the Club’s fees structure have never kept up
  3. Increased number of personnel required in order to keep staff and children safe including sanitizing, deep cleaning, check in / check out
  4. Increased reporting requirements
  5. The Club does not receive government funds, school district funds, or other tax based resources – we are dependent on giving in the community to provide low cost programs for your children.  COVID-19 has eliminated, our ability to fundraise / create revenue to support the organization.

 

Q:         Will youth be required to wear masks?

A:          Yes, unless outside and 6ft of social distancing can be obtained. This will be in line with school district policies.

 

Q:        What about foster families?

A:         As always, we do not charge fees for service to foster children.  This is thanks to a generous local donor!

 

Q:        When is payment due?

A:         The Club’s programs are all pay in advance – we do not have a billings office (although currently we are sending out courtesy weekly/monthly invoices via email). You must pay for the weeks/month you need access by the Thursday before the week/month registered.  You will receive an invoice via email as soon as is feasibly possible (usually the Tuesday prior to due date).  Please pay in a timely manner.
