Drop In Care
For times of unforeseen childcare needs or on an occasional basis, any MCHD student age 3-12 may use Drop-In Care in the after-school program, space permitting. Drop-In Care must be scheduled at least 15 minutes in advance. There is a one hour minimum, and after one hour, care is billed in 15 minute increments.
Special package rates for Drop-In Care are available for Enrichment students not enrolled in the after-school program. This option provides an escort from MCHD to After School at the end of the school day and care before and/or after the Enrichment class.
Drop In Care is also available before school for any MCHD student space permitting, beginning at 7:45 a.m. See "Drop In Care" above for more information.
