Before & After School Care

Knapp has partnered with the YMCA to now offer an on-site after school program. We also partner with several well-respected, local day care providers who provide transportation to and from our school building. While these programs are not technically endorsed by Knapp Charter Academy, we're more than happy to provide their information as a service to you. Please feel free to research the locations below to see if they may be the right fit for you.

On site

Times

School End - 6:00pm
 

Ages

5yrs - 12yrs

 

Description

$40 per week (4 or 5 days) or $10 per day (2 or 3 days)
Children required to sign up for at least two days a week.

We will also be offering scholarships for qualifying families and accept DHHS payments.

We understand that schedule changes happen, in order to avoid being charged for days that your child doesn’t attend, we need a two week notice of the schedule change.

Our typical daily schedule consists of homework help time, academic activities, outdoor play, gym time, team building games, and a snack (entrée, fruit, and vegetable). We stick to a ratio of at least 1 staff to 15 children, and all staff are qualified to work in childcare by the State of Michigan.

The program is licensed by the State of Michigan, and because of this we require an enrollment packet to be completed before your children can attend the program. These forms can be returned to Sarah Maze by email at smaze@grymca.org or fax at 616-855-9560, or they may be returned to the school office.
