Welcome to Our Program
Here at Savannah Christian Preparatory School, we offer 3 different childcare programs for our Lower School.
Our Before Care Program begins at 6:30 a.m. and ends at 7:45 a.m. The wonderful morning experience offers many fun activities for the students before school begins.
Our Extended Care Program is from 2:45 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. It offers students time to unwind with a snack and plenty of indoor/outdoor play.
Our Aftercare Program is from 2:45 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Each child is provided with a yummy snack. Time is given to provide physical activities indoors and outdoors (weather permitting). Lastly, it has designated time for homework for our older students.
Drop-in care is available.
Holiday care is offered throughout the school year. We must have at least 15 students registered and pre-paid in order to offer holiday care.

Procedures for Dropping off Your Student
- Please park in the parking lot near the Akins building and walk into the building.
- If you arrive at 7:25 am or later, it is best to park to the left of the Akins building to avoid getting stuck in the carpool line in the mornings.
- Please, sign-in/clock-in your student every morning.
Before Care Locations
- Pre-K – 5th: Akins Building Classrooms
Procedures for Picking up Your Student
- We invite you to come sign-out/clock-out your student in the Akins Building. If a staff member is not present to help you, you may call the before/aftercare mobile number listed on the bulletin board in Akins hallway.
- Hours for Aftercare are from 2:45 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. A $25 late pick-up fee will be assessed for every quarter hour after 6:00 p.m. that a student is not picked up.
- Hours for Extended Care are from 2:45 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. Any student that is not picked up by 4:00 p.m. will be moved into an Aftercare group. This move incurs a drop-in charge of $40.00.
