Ottumwa Christian School Before and After School Care

Ottumwa Christian School will be offering Before and After School Care again this year.  Ms. Fulton will provide Before School Care Monday – Friday in the gymnasium.  Mrs. Dalbey will provide After School Care on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday in room 104.  Mrs. Hornback will provide After School  Care on Wednesday in room 102.

Before School Care will be offered between the hours of 7:00-8:00am.  The cost of before school care is $2.  

After School Care will be offered from dismissal time until 5:30pm.  The cost of After School Care is $4 if a child is picked up before 4:00 and $6 for a child that is picked up after 4:00.  If you arrive after 5:30pm, you will be charged $1/ minute.

There will be no Before School Care on late starts, non-school days, or holidays.  There will be no After School Care on early outs, non-school days or holidays.  Please mark early out days on your calendar and make other arrangements.  OCS typically has 1 early out Wednesday per month.  You can find a school calendar on our website: ottumwachristianschool.com

Our teachers work hard, and in many ways go above and beyond, we want to respect them and their time.  It is not fair to expect them to watch your children after school has been dismissed.  We understand that life happens and sometimes there are things that come up unexpectedly, when that is the case, you can rest assured that your child is in good hands until you can get to the school, and they will be taken to our After School Care Provider.   It is our desire that all the children are supervised in a positive and safe atmosphere at all times.  

You will be billed through the school, an invoice will be sent the Tuesday following when services were utilized.  Please try to keep invoices current.

Your children get hungry after school.  We are applying a $10 snack fee for each child.  The snack fee will be added to your first invoice. Please make sure to let the office know if your child has any food allergies.
