Jenison Christian School Childcare Program accepts children 2 1/2 years old through 12 years old. Children must be potty trained and able to use the restroom independently. 

Students that are enrolled in elementary school will spend the morning in the child care rooms, playing and coloring, prior to being dismissed to the playground or classroom at 8:00 am.

Our preschool aged students will then spend the morning playing and getting ready for preschool (if they attend our Jenison Christian Preschool program). Once preschool students are dismissed at 9:00 am, the others attending all day will spend the morning participating in a number of activities including school-wide chapels, outdoor play, art and science projects, and much more. Following the morning activities and the arrival of the preschool students back again, we have lunch and then a rest time from 1:00 pm - 2:45 pm. Once the after-school age children arrive after school is dismissed at 3:15 pm and snacks are served, the rest of the afternoon is spent outside (weather permitting).

A $30 enrollment fee is due before your child starts their first day of childcare. If more than one child, the fee is $50 per family. This is a one time fee that covers your child’s entire time at JCS Childcare.
