Elementary Before & After School Care

Program Overview

  • Children must be enrolled in classes at FBCA.
  • Parents may submit the Extended Care Enrollment Form to the Elementary office in August.
  • Parents may choose Before AND After School care, ONLY Before Care, or ONLY After Care.  Care is available 6:00-8:30 a.m. and 3:15-6:00 p.m.
  • Children are cared for by FBCA staff that has passed a criminal record check with the Missouri State Highway Patrol.  Employees are members of First Baptist Church O’Fallon or a church of like faith.  In addition, a part of the hiring process includes a doctrinal survey, which indicates the person’s beliefs about Christ and how His teachings apply to their everyday lives.
  • Children who arrive before 7:00 a.m. may bring their breakfast; FBCA does NOT provide or have available breakfast food.
  • Activities may include group play, board, board and card games, reading and homework completion.
  • Class begins at 8:30.  Children will remain in the Annex Building until 8:10 and then will be escorted to the Elementary Building.
  • When class ends at 3:15 a snack will be served; weather permitting they will go to the playground.  In cold/rainy weather they will go to the Annex Building.
  • For security purposes children MUST be signed in upon arrival and signed out before you take your child from the premises.
  • Only children who are currently enrolled in extended care are eligible for attendance on Snow, Day Care Only, and Early Dismissal Days. CHILDREN MAY ATTEND BUT PAY EMERGENCY CARE RATE/FEE! There will be an additional charge for care given during the time the children would ordinarily be in class.
  • There may be a time when a parent needs childcare before or after school even though their child is not enrolled in extended care. We can accommodate this on an emergency basis only. If a family needs this Emergency Care additional fees will be charged.
  • All kindergarten children should have a change of clothing in their backpack in case of an accident.  Please place a complete set of clothing in a Ziploc bag with their name on it.  As seasons change, please update the spare set.
