After School Program and TK Care
Our after 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, 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. The sign-up forms are included below for your convenience. Pre-Registration Deadline: Friday, September 3rd
Children are supervised on the playground at no charge to our MCS parents during regular morning drop-off times between 7:30 and 8:15 a.m. All students arriving at school before 7:30 a.m. must report to the ASP room to be checked into Morning Care.
After School Program “ASP” for TK-8th Grades: Morning Care is available from 7:00–7:30 a.m. and afternoon 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.
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 After School Program room to be checked in. TK-Care students eat lunch together in the ASP room 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, group games, cooking classes, music or free play.

Students may not wait unsupervised in our lobby area or at the flagpole.
