If you would like to participate in Kids Care at Grand Rapids Christian, please do not delay in completing your registration as classroom space will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  To secure specific days, you must request those days on your online registration form. 

Families who use Kids Care on an as-needed basis, must confirm space availability at least 24 hours prior to each use and will be charged the as-needed daily rate. 

To confirm space availability for care on an as-needed basis, contact  Katelynn McKellar (Iroquois/Evergreen Campuses) or Emily Jansen (Rockford Christian).

If your child arrives at Kids Care without prior confirmation or on a day they are not scheduled to be there, you will receive a phone call to pick up your child from the school office.  If your child is not picked up in the office by 3:30 pm you will be charged for the as-needed day rate and will need to pay at pick up.
