The program is designed to serve children four years of age through 8th grade. Immanuel Extended Care is open Monday-Friday, from 6:00 am to 8:00 am (morning session) and then again from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm (afternoon session).

Immanuel Extended Care provides developmentally appropriate activities and allows children to make many of their own choices regarding these activities. Some of these include games, toys/puzzles, art/media center, reading area, religious concepts, homework area, dramatic play, building centers, science concepts, and indoor/outdoor play.

Preschool Care: Immanuel Extended Care offers morning and afternoon care for preschool children. Children will arrive at Immanuel Extended Care in the morning until it is time for class to begin or attend the later session after class is finished.

Drop-in care will be given on a space-permitted basis only. Please call ahead for drop-in care.

Fees for Immanuel Extended Care include a registration fee of $35.00 per family. The morning and afternoon sessions cost $3.50 per hour. Please see the Immanuel Extended Care handbook for more information.
