Immanuel's Childcare Program exists to provide a quality Christian environment where children can be nurtured according to God's will. We provide a seamless transition between school and daycare for your child if your schedule prevents you from being at Immanuel during regular drop-off or pick-up times. Our regular hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, with the exception of most school holidays. Please consult our childcare staff regarding hours on holidays and half-days. Upon availibility, all children who attend Immanuel Lutheran School and their younger siblings ages 3 years (and potty-trained) to 14 years will be accepted into Immanuel's Childcare Program.
Registration and Fees
Registration for the school-year childcare program will take place at orientation in August. At the time of registration, each family will be required to sign a contract stating their intent to use the childcare center facilities. This will include the hours and days of service for each child the family wishes to enroll in the program. A non-refundable and non-transferable registration fee of $50 per child is payable at this time ($65/child after orientation night). This registration fee will hold your child's spot in childcare for the hours you have contracted. Standard policy requires parents to fill out a new contract, prior to the time of service, if their hours of service change. Prior to attending, the following must be completed:
- Registration Form
- Childcare Contract
- Emergency Card with Authorized Release Persons
- Immunization Information
- Physical Form (signed by physician)
- Registration Fee
- Permission to Apply Sunblock & Insect Repellent Form
There is a flat rate for childcare of $4.50/hour for contracted service and $8.50/hour for drop-in service. Children arriving before 7:00 a.m. or remaining at the center past 6:00 p.m. will be charged $1.00 for every 1 minute of additional service. Fees are billed on a weekly basis. Care is billed the first business day; after the week the childcare was used. Payments are due to the finance office by Friday of the same week.
Sign-in and Sign-Out
Parents or guardians of students participating in childcare are required to sign them in the book at the childcare center front desk and bring them into the program room. It is the parent's responsibility to see that the group leader or teacher is aware that their child is on the premises. Childcare staff are not responsible for children in the case of accident or injury if the parents have not entered the building and signed their child into the program.
It is important that your child is signed out as they leave with you. Parents who have other adults picking up their children should provide the childcare staff with a written note stating such. These adults must show proof of identification to our staff at the time of pick-up. If any person who is unauthorized to pick up a child comes to the center and requests the child to be released to them, parents will be notified and the child will remain in the care of Immanuel's staff and teachers.
