Lansing Christian attempts to staff our Extended Care program in a 15:1 student to teacher ratio.


Children will enjoy a variety of activities including (but not limited to) supervised recess times outside or in the gym (when available), daily activities, creative play, reading, puzzles, computers, video, and board games. They are allowed to bring their handheld electronic games as well. If students choose to complete their homework while attending extended care, the staff will ensure an appropriate environment for study. A pre-packaged snack will be provided. Parents are welcome, however, to send their own snack if the child prefers something other than what is being offered.


Enrolled families who intend to use the Extended Care program must complete a registration form. There is a registration fee of $20 per student or $30 per family for families that use Extended Care more than 10 hours for the year.


In order to maintain adequate staffing, families will be asked to submit a projected schedule indicating the days and times their child(ren) will attend the program. Communication with the Extended Care director allows for adequate staffing of the program.


Students enrolled in grades PreK-3 through 8th grade at LCS are invited to attend. Children attending the Extended Care program must be signed into and out of the program by their parent/guardian each day. Any parent/guardian who does not pick up their child by 6:00 p.m. will be assessed an after hours supervision fee of $1.00 per minute beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Payment Policies

Because before and after care costs will be added to tuition statements it is important that tuition accounts be kept current. Accounts that become delinquent will result in the removal of the child(ren) from the program.

Drop-Off & Pick-Up

Students can typically be dropped off or picked up at door #18. At times, the students in Extended Care may be in the gym or playground. When this happens, signs on the door will direct authorized individuals to the appropriate location.
