Extended Care Info

MCPK's Extended Care program is truly an extension of the Full-Day School program in both quality and structure. The program is run by qualified, experienced, and enthusiastic teachers who receive training alongside teachers from our Full-Day School Program.

Teachers create lesson plans that follow the needs and interests of their students, while also providing plenty of unstructured and outdoor play time. Sensitive to the long hours of the Extended Care Program, teachers also make sure to include quiet time and read with children in small groups.

Parents must register separately for Extended Care.Morning Extended Care is offered from 7:00- 8:15 am. Parents may drop-off at anytime between 7:00 - 8:15 am. Morning care is included in your extended care schedule. It is not something you need to sign up for separately.Afternoon Extended Care is offered from 2:30pm - 6:00pm. Parents may pick-up anytime between 2:30 - 6:00 pm.Families registering a child for Extended Care once the school year has started must provide two week's notice.There is a charge of $1.00 per minute for any child picked up after 6:00pm. Participation can be suspended or terminated if the lateness becomes a continual practice.

Punch Cards - Punch cards will be available to purchase the first week of October

The punch card system is intended to assist families who may need an extended day for their child on an irregular basis. It will begin on Monday, October 10th, 2022. To use the system, a       family must purchase a card with block "punches" on it. The extended care program hours are 7:00 a.m. – 8:15 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

The prices are as follows:

5 punches = $150.0010 punches = $275.00

NOTE: there is a late fee attached if a child is picked up after 6:00 p.m.

The punch card can be used for the following:

For Early Morning Care from 7:00 a.m. – 8:15 a.m.To extend a half-day to a full-day (12:30 p.m. pick up to 2:30 p.m. pick-up)To extend a half day to a full day plus extended care (12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., 2:30p.m. to 6:00 p.m.) NOTE: THIS WOULD COUNT AS TWO PUNCHESTo extend a full day to extended care (through 6:00 p.m.)

Payment is due in full upon purchase of the card; there is no tuition assistance available for this service. Each day that a child uses the extended day program will serve as 1 "punch" and the date of use will be recorded on the back of the card; in addition, the Front Desk will keep a log of all "punch card" users every day. Again, please note, if you are using the punch card to extend a half-day to a full day plus extended care, this would count as two punches.

Due to staffing, punches cannot be used on early dismissal days. The card is for use by one family only and not transferable. Each child who stays will use 1 punch (i.e., if two children stay from one family it is 2 punches). The card is good for the entire school year, but expires on the last full day of school.
