Program Philosophy

As an enrichment program, extended day activities promote the development of children's self esteem and social skills through a variety of healthy, age appropriate activities in a safe, nurturing environment. Each child is recognized as an individual.

The program operates under the supervision of the Program Manger and school principal. STaff members include the Assistant Program Manager, Activity Leaders and Program Aides with special expertise in organizing arts/crafts, drama, dance, music, academic enrichment, games and sports.

We offer before and after school care for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Our Before school program opens at 6:30 am. The children who attend will be in an environment that is relaxed and comfortable. We have several different activities to choose from each morning. Children are able to build relationships with other children of all ages, as well as with our devoted and caring staff.

After school we have a nutritious snack available. Then the children have the choice of reading club or homework club. Our homework club allows children to work on homework in a quiet, friendly area with friends and staff available for help. In the evening, the children participate in planned activities in the gym, cafeteria and computer lab. Our After school program ends at 6:00 pm.

Registration and Tuition Information

There are two schedule options to choose from:contracted schedule or calendar schedule. For ease in maintaining sign in list and student to staff rations, we prefer contracted schedule. However, we do realize that some families' may need more flexibility in scheduling.

Contracted schedules:you sign your child up for the same days/times you will need on a consistent basis each week. For example, if your child will need M, T, F before school every week, then that is what you will be billed for each month. Same for summer, if you need T, Th in the summer, then you will be billed for Tuesdays and Thursdays each month. Contracted schedules have credits available to use both during the summer and school year and you may change your contracted schedule by filing out the schedule change form. Prices per day: Before School $9.00, After school $10.00, both Before and After $19.00, non student days $33.00.

Calendar schedules:allow you to submit a monthly schedule that you will need for your child during that particular time period. You will be notified if there is not space on a particular day, as preference is given to contracted schedules. Calendar schedules do not receive credits for days on non-attendance because you have the advantage of choosing only the days you need on a monthly basis. Prices per day:

We have a non-refundable registration fee of $25.00 per family each fall and a $25 registration fee each summer.

SACC Non Student Days and Closures

 

The Runyon SACC program follows the School calendar for closures, including all holidays and winter and spring break. 

In the event of inclement weather, the program is not in operation if the school is closed. If school is on delayed start, we are still open at 6:30. If the school is dismissed early because of inclement weather, the program only remains open until the last child is picked up. 
If the decision is made to close schools, School Age Child Care will be on the same Early Dismissal schedule.  Parents will need to pick up children at the school dismissal time.

In consideration of all involved, we ask that children be picked up on these days as early and safely as possible.

We are open on non-student days that there is no school for kids, but teachers are here. On non-student days, care is available by signing up in advance, on a first come, first served basis.
