Before School, After School, and TK Care Programs

Our extended school programs provide a loving, safe and fun environment for students to connect, grow and learn during out-of-school time. Age-appropriate activities include homework club, cooking club, technology, art, community building, outdoor play, and more. Our team of caring professionals minister to the unique needs of every child in a Christ-centered family like atmosphere. 

  • TK-Care and After School Program (ASP) care are both available the first day of school.  You may sign up for first-day-of-school TK-Care or ASP care on Meet the Teacher Day in the ASP room.  
  • Before School Program “BSP”: BSP is available from 7:00 - 7:30 a.m. except for late start Mondays when BSP is available from 7:00 - 8:30 a.m. All students arriving at school before 7:30 a.m. must report to the ASP room to be checked into Morning Care. Children are supervised on the playground at no charge to our MCS parents during regular morning drop-off times between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. 
  • TK-Care: TK-Care is a program that runs from 12:30 p.m. to 2:35 p.m. every school day and is designed for TK students. When dismissed from their classroom, students are walked to the TK Courtyard to be checked in.  TK-Care students eat lunch together in the TK Courtyard and go out to recess to play with other students. Beginning at 1:15 p.m., TK-Care students participate in fun and creative themed lessons which include crafts, guided learning activities, directed drawing, group games, cooking classes, or free play.
  • After School Program “ASP” for TK-8th Grades: ASP care is available from 2:35-6:00 p.m. After-school care is not available on holidays or school closure days. Please see the school calendar for early dismissal days.
