Early Birds

Monday – Friday, 7:30 AM to 8:50 AM

The Manitou School offers prepaid care before school for a limited number of enrolled students on a first come, first serve basis.

We offer drop-in early care depending on availability, but families must register their student by 1 PM the previous day.  

Families should drop off students for early birds care at the front door.

 

A Note about the 2022-2023 Early Birds Care Program:

In the past, early bird care was offered informally and not as an advertised service. This year we are formalizing the program and making it more widely available to the school community. The early birds program will continue to be led by Ms. Nubia.

Drop-in Early Birds Care

We are currently unable to accommodate drop-in Early Birds care, but we hope to open up this option via the Curacubby parent portal in the near future.

Aftercare


Monday – Friday, 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM

The Manitou School offers aftercare services to students currently enrolled at Manitou. The Aftercare Program allows time for children to have free play as well as time to read, create art, and do homework.

Please provide your child with a nut-free healthy snack every day they are attending an afternoon enrichment class or aftercare. Snack must be in a separate container clearly marked “Aftercare”. Snacks are not provided by the school.

A Note about the 2022-2023 Aftercare Program Pricing Structure:

While the fee structure for aftercare has changed some, the costs for aftercare are purposely very comparable to last year’s prices. 

The biggest changes are:

  • We no longer have plans based on the number of children. We have tried to create a price breakdown that reduces the total costs per student for families who use regularly scheduled aftercare multiple times a week.
  • Families with multiple children should select a plan for each child. Families with more than one child attending aftercare will receive a discount based on how many days/children are participating. 
  • The cost of drop-in aftercare has stayed the same as last year. 

Our goal is to continue to tweak the aftercare pricing model so it feels equitable and reasonable. 

 

Regularly Scheduled Aftercare

If your aftercare needs are consistent, we suggest that you sign up for regularly scheduled aftercare. You will be able to select how many days a week and which days.

By committing to an aftercare schedule, you will receive a discount (see pricing structure below). Your monthly payment is due regardless of holidays, vacations, and illness. You will receive automatic invoices and be able to easily pay them via Curacubby (more on this soon!).

Prepaid Aftercare 1 day a week $128
Prepaid Aftercare 2 days a week $252
Prepaid Aftercare 3 days a week $375
Prepaid Aftercare 4 days a week $488
Prepaid Aftercare 5 days a week $600

Drop-in Aftercare

We strongly recommend that all Manitou families enroll their children in the drop-in aftercare program now. This will allow you to use our aftercare system if you need to at any point during the school year. 

If you only need aftercare occasionally and not on a consistent timeframe, we suggest that you enroll your child in the drop-in aftercare program.  Enrollment for Drop-in Aftercare requires you to:

  • Confirm that you understand Manitou Aftercare policies and payment structures
  • Provide us with the names of people who are authorized to pick up your child from aftercare. 

You will only be billed when your child attends aftercare. 

On the days that you need your child to use drop-in aftercare, you need to update your child’s schedule using the Curacubby app. Curacubby makes it much easier for teachers, staff, and parents to all get on the same page when a dismissal change occurs. It is important that you make these changes so that everyone is clear on where your child should be at all times. 

Drop-in Aftercare (per day) $35

 

 

Late Pick-Up Fees

Late for School Dismissal Fee: If your child is scheduled to be picked up at the end of the school day and you are 10+ minutes late, your child will be sent to aftercare automatically. You will receive a bill for the drop-in aftercare rate ($35).

Please understand that classroom teachers have other commitments and responsibilities at the end of the school day and that they can not wait around for late pickups. 

Late Aftercare Pickup Fee: Please ensure that your child is picked up by 5:30 pm sharp. If you are late, you will be charged a $35 fee. If you are late more than twice, Manitou reserves the right to withdraw your eligibility to participate in our aftercare program.
