The goal of Knight's Club is to provide high-quality, affordable before and after school care for our families. The program is based on the belief that the program is sponsored through Visitation School and therefore only Visitation students may participate. Knight's Club operates in full cooperation with all school policies. Clear communication and careful coordination between parents, Knight's Club and school staff is essential to the success of this program.

Registration Fee

Participation in the program can begin once registration is complete. A yearly, non-refundable fee of $20.00 is required for each child (visit the school office for forms). Registration fees will be used to purchase art and craft supplies, board games, books, miscellaneous supplies for the program and any special activity items.

Attendance Sheet

There is an attendance sheet for parents/guardians to sign each day. It is in the best interest of the children to require a parent/guardian to sign this sheet upon departure. The Knight's Club caregiver will check the child in each day when they arrive. Children will not be released to parties, meetings, sports or other activities without prior written authorization from a parent/guardian that is signed and dated.

Payment

All Knight's Club charges will be billed by the school bookkeeper. Charges will be billed on the 1st and will be due on the 10th of each month. Payments received after the 10th of the month will be subject to a $10 late fee. All checks returned for non-sufficient funds will result in a $20 added NSF amount. Delinquency in payment will be cause for students to be dismissed from the program.

Before-school care

The charge for students who arrive on-campus before 8:00 a.m. is $3.50 per child per day. Breakfast snack will be provided regardless of arrival time. (Students not registered for Knights Club are not allowed on campus before 8:00 a.m., and no students are allowed on campus before 7:00 a.m.)

After-school care

Charges for the afternoon care will be calculated to the nearest half hour after the initial hour. The hourly rate will be $3.50 per child. If a child is not picked up by the 6:00 p.m., a $10 fee will be charged for each additional 15 minute period. This will be in addition to regular hourly fees. Habitual tardy pick up may result in non-participation in the program.

Curriculum

There will be an established schedule of programs and activities during the session to include homework time, arts and crafts, snack and free and structured play.
