Extended Care Program

Extended Care Program

The Extended Care program at Rockford Christian Elementary School is an additional program made available for those students who need care before school and/or after the school day ends. Before care begins at 6:45 am and after care ends at 6:00 pm. The fee is $5 per hour, billed in 15 minute increments. You are only billed for the time you use! The goal is to serve families by providing a safe, fun and enjoyable place for PreK-Grade 5 children to play, study, and grow in their relationships with each other! Students will participate in fun activities such as gym time, homework time, arts and crafts, playground and games. We will provide a snack for each student, however your student is welcome to bring a snack from home.

Program Hours
Mornings - 6:45-8:15 a.m.
Afternoons - 2:45-6:00 p.m.
