Before and After School Care
Cherokee Christian Academy offers a before/after school program called GrowthCare to assist those parents who need to drop off their children early (7:15 a.m.) or pick up their children late (up to 6:00 p.m.). GrowthCare personnel provide a well supervised, protected, and nurturing environment.
The morning session begins in the gymnasium, where students may socialize, read, or engage in mild physical activity. We breakout to the playground from about 8:00 a.m. until 8:25 a.m. when we line up to go into the classrooms. The afternoon session meets in a designated area for periods of structured homework and unstructured recreation. A snack is provided in the afternoon.
We register students into GrowthCare at the time of service. When GrowthCare is needed, inform your child or call the school and let the front desk know you need your child placed into GrowthCare. The front desk will notify your child’s teacher to send him/her directly to GrowthCare.
Fees (Per Child)
GrowthCare fees are usage-based on the following schedule and no pre-registration is needed for occasional usage.
