Kids Care Scheduling Flag

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, contact the Kids Care Assistant Director, Ellen Cooke.

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.
