During the first and last week of summer care we will set up inflatables in the elementary gym in lieu of field trips. To help cover rental costs there will be a $5 fee charged to all students that attend Kid’s Corner during those two weeks.

If you do not feel comfortable with your child watching any of these titles, please let a staff member know so we can set up alternative activities for your child during that time. Thanks!

POTTY TRAINING POLICY

Students are expected to be fully potty-trained prior to attending Sioux Falls Christian Summer Care. This means that they can use the restroom unassisted. If frequent bathrooms accidents occur while in Kid’s Corner your child may be asked to take a break from the summer program. Please see the Sioux Falls Christian Potty Training Policy on the school website for more details.

BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS

Students attending Kid’s Corner are expected to follow the program rules and treat all staff and students with respect. The staff reserves the right to hold a student out of activities (field trips included) if poor behavior is creating an unsafe environment for that student or those around him/her. If there are multiple behavioral issues childcare may be terminated.
