Before and After School Club is available for WCA students in Preschool–6th grade. Before School Care includes supervised time for play and/or homework. After School Care provides structured activities, games, free play, and a time for homework for the older grades.
Preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten students who stay for the full day must bring their own lunch. Those students have a rest/nap period each day. A lightweight blanket is provided for each student. All personal items, including stuffed animals, should be left at home.
New for 2021–22: This year, we are not able to offer drop-in between care (11:30–3:10pm). Students in preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten must be enrolled as half-day or full-day students. If your student is enrolled in the half-day program, then you are expected to pick them up at 11:30am each day. If you have a child enrolled in the full-day program, then you would need to provide advance notification to their teacher and the office if they will be picked up at any time other than 3:10pm.
WCA Preschool through 6th grade students may use Before and After Care on an “as needed” drop-in basis, provided space is available. You must register (see below) once per school year if you plan to use drop-in care. This can be done at the beginning of the school year or at any time, if the need arises. If you are planning to have your child drop-in for extended care, advance notification is appreciated. Please call the office at (847) 548–6209.
Please Note: Before and After School Care is not available for ½ days, teacher in-service days, holidays, or spring and Christmas vacations.
Annual enrollment in WCA Before and After School Care is required and based on a first come / first serve basis. Below you can choose to register for Extended Care at Westlake Christian Academy. We offer Before Care from 7:00 – 7:50 am, and After Care from 3:10 – 6:00 pm.
