Welcome to the world of extended care where we provide a loving and supportive environment for our scholars before and after school. This program is a great opportunity for the scholars of our busy parents to know their children are thriving in a safe, after-school environment.

Billing / Signing In & Out
We use a web-based software called Kinderlime to track our rosters for extended care. Billing will occur monthly through your FACTS account. We will NOT be billing through Kinderlime this year. You will receive an email the first week of school from Kinderlime giving you access to your individual Parent PIN. Please make sure you check your child in and out with an extended care worker so we know your child was safely picked up. As we learn names and faces, please have a photo ID with you at pick up to confirm identity.
In the morning, parents will walk their children up the side stairs of the Sprout Buildings and into the furthest building to input your four-digit PIN to sign in scholar(s).
In the afternoon, our After Care staff will use Kinderlime to ‘sign’ all of their kids into the app. When parents come to pick up, they will need to provide their four-digit PIN to check out their scholar.
Morning Care Program hours are from 7:00 a.m. until 7:55am. At that time, Elementary children are escorted to the patio and dismissed to classes. MS/HS scholars will convene in the auditorium at that time until they are released to classes. Our After Care Program hours are from 3:30p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Extended Care closes promptly at 6:00 p.m. Late fees apply for pick-ups after 6pm.
In our extended care program, we follow the same rules that apply to scholars when school is in session without exception. Repeated behavior violations will result in administrative conference with the family to discuss the need for removal from the program. Specific Extended Care Rules are as follows:
Rule 1: Ask Permission (When you want to use supplies, use the restroom, or leave the area)
Rule 2: Call and Response (Listen for your name and respond quickly on the playground)
Rule 3: Work Comes First (You must be caught up on homework to earn playground time)
Parent Check Out
Parents or authorized pick-up persons are required to sign out scholars daily. You may be asked for identification at any time when picking up your scholar. If someone not on your authorized pick up list needs to pick up your child, please notify the front desk DURING the school day as soon as possible so our front desk can relay that information onto our staff.
After School Clubs, Sports, Tutoring:
If your child is not picked up directly following an activity at school, and they are brought to extended care, your family will be charged for the afternoon once they are checked into our extended care program. Scholars are not permitted to hang around on the campus unsupervised waiting for pick-up.
Extended care is billed on a monthly basis. Morning Care is $5 a day, and Afternoon Care is $10. Extended Care Program closes promptly at 6:00 PM. There is no grace period after 6:00 p.m. Please note an additional fee will be charged for any late pick up regardless of the reason. Fee assessment begins at 6:01 p.m. at a rate of $15.00 each quarter hour interval. Repeated late pickups will result in your scholar being withdrawn from the program with no further obligation from OSOTA.
In accordance with our Scholar Wellness policy, a nourishing snack and drink low in sugar content should be sent with each scholar attending the afternoon session of extended care. Clearly designate both items “Extended Care”.
In the event of an emergency after our normal school office hours (8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.), simply call or text (407) 900-8814 and follow the directions to speak to our extended care staff. This should be used if you are running late, have unexpected travel arrangements, or a family emergency.
