COME JOIN THE KINGSMEN KIDS AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM!
The Kingsmen Kids After School Program is provided for Christian Heritage School Lower School students in Kindergarten - 5th grades. It is designed to serve the needs of parents who require assistance on an occasional, regular or weekly basis after regular school hours.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is it?
Christian Heritage School policy requires that all Lower School students grades K through 5 must be under adult supervision while on the school campus, and the Kingsmen Kids After School Program offers a safe, fun, neighborhood environment right at CHS! Each afternoon we will break for snack. Parents should provide a snack and water bottle for after school (no snacks containing nuts, and note, please inform your student no sharing of snacks for health reasons, thank you). There is a small library of books, games, and puzzles for younger students to enjoy. We also provide fun activities intended to reinforce classroom studies. Students are encouraged to work on their homework with assistance if needed and can participate in organized, indoor activities as well as outdoor free play (weather permitting).
When is it?
The Kingsmen Kids After School Program is available from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day and follows the CHS school calendar. After school care is not available on the days of parent teacher conferences, half days, early dismissal days due to inclement weather, or any days that school is not in session.
Who will be taking care of my student?
Kingsmen Kids is run by our Director and two to three adult/teen workers who will care for the students each afternoon.
What is Procare?
CHS now uses an after-school software application called Procare which allows electronic sign in-out via an iPad or cell phone. Through this app, parents can access their billing account, receive student updates and messages, and find their student pick up location (all in real time). If you wish to sign up for the Kingsmen Kids After School Program, please contact KingsmenKids@kingsmen.org. You will receive an electronic invitation from Procare with a link and instructions for downloading the App. You will be invoiced and make payments through your Procure family account.
How much is it?
Unlimited Use Plan - $2,500 per child. Allows unlimited use of the Kingsmen Kids After School Program services for the entire school year. This plan can be paid annually, or in 10 installments of $250 a month, September to June.
Occasional Use Monthly Plan - $250 a month. You may choose the months that you would like to receive services. This plan will be billed for the selected month(s).
Occasional Use Day or Emergency Use - $9 an hour, billed the month after services are provided.
Please note that all plan payments are invoiced the 1st of the month and payment is due on the 15th of the month. Procare offers a convenient way to pay through the app, or you may bring your payment to the CHS Finance Office. No cash or checks will be exchanged at the Kingsmen Kids After School Program. The after school program closes at 5:30 p.m. Late fees totaling $1 per minute are charged after that time, regardless of the payment plan chosen.

When is this program available?
Upon arrival at CHS parents sign out their child(ren) from Kingsmen Kids After School from a designated Kingsmen Kids staffer and normal charges for the after school program will apply. Billing for students not on an unlimited or monthly plan is done in increments of one minute, beginning at 2:45 p.m. for kindergarten students and at 2:55 p.m. for those requiring occasional or emergency use. Charges are based on 1 minute increments at an hourly rate of $9.00 per hour. The hours recorded from Procare are invoiced monthly.
Please note that for safety reasons, though CHS is a neighborhood-like environment, a student may not leave the CHS campus without being signed out by a program staffer.
