IMPORTANT:

For the safety of the children, any student who is still here at 3:35 p.m. will automatically be signed in to after care. There is no need to call the office to let us know. The office will be closing at 3:30 p.m. every day.

Due to Kansas Department of Health and Environment licensing regulations, we cannot provide care after 5:25 p.m. It is extremely important for the school to comply with all licensing regulations at all times because they are in place to protect the health, safety and welfare of the children. If a child is still in our care after 5:25 p.m., we are in violation of licensing regulations. Please help us adhere to the licensing requirements by picking your child up by 5:25 p.m. or before. 

Parents will check children in and out on the computer. Since billing is done by the minute, it is important that the exact check out time is recorded for each child. That is difficult to do when there are several children leaving at the same time and the teacher is interacting and communicating with the parents and children. It is vital that the teacher knows how many children are in her care at all times. Billing will be based on check in and check out times. If the parent does not check the child out, they will be billed for the entire session. 

If someone else is picking up your child, please let us know and make sure they are on the authorized pick-up list. If the person does not come to the school often, it is also a good idea for them to bring their ID so we can confirm that they are authorized to pick the child up from TCS.

To contact after-care providers after the office is closed at 3:30p.m., call Google Voice number 785-422-7382 (4 Care TC) and leave a message. It will generate a voicemail and text to the cell phones of all the providers. Someone will get back with you ASAP.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Mindy Johnson at mjohnson@topekacollegiate.org. You can also call or stop by the office. 

                

After-school Care 3:35 p.m.-5:25 p.m.

What to Expect

Each day, students have a healthy snack. These choices typically include fresh fruit, yogurt, granola bars, cheese and crackers and raisins.

Students have 20-30 minutes of physical activity where they are able to play and/or socialize.

Every student participating in after-school care, with the exception of preschool, is given time for academic studies. During academic time, your student's priority is to work on his or her homework. Once homework is completed, students may choose to read, write or work on supplemental work.

 

Children enjoy the fresh air and exercise each day after school!
