Extended Care – Extended Care is provided for families who need care beyond the pre-school and pre-kindergarten schedule. Sessions are available for all pre-kindergarten and pre-school students. Our extended care program offers the proper balance of play and appropriate academic activities within a given day. Our overall goal is to provide a safe place where your child will learn that the Bible is at the center of learning while learning the appropriate foundational skills required for kindergarten. Our curricular goals reflect those of Sioux Falls Christian pre-school and pre-kindergarten. Extended Care is fully accredited by the Department of Social Services.
Our extended care students have access to our hot lunch programs as well as the other amenities the school building offers such as the computer lab, various gymnasiums, art room and our before and after school program. Program policies are available upon request.
