    Hours of Service

    Chestatee’s After School Care will be available beginning directly after school until 6:00 pm daily. 

    **During early release days, the program will run from 11:50a.m. - 6:00p.m. at no additional charge. Care for Kids will not be open during school holidays or in the event of inclement weather.**

    Parent Pick up
    Release of students will be allowed to the parents or other authorized persons only. Students must be signed out by the authorized person at pick up daily. The student’s teacher is to be notified in writing of any changes regarding pick-up procedures. For the safety of your child, a picture I.D. will be required for pick up until our staff is familiar with the parents and other authorized adults who pick your child up daily.                                                                               Please call the Care for Kids cell phone after 2:30 to contact staff: 770-757-7427 

    If you are late for pick-up, the cost will be $1 per minute per child (FEE MUST BE PAID UPON PICK-UP). Three late pick-ups or more may result in dismissal from the program. 

    Registration forms for Care for Kids will be available at Open House on Tuesday, August 1st . We will be set up in the Cafeteria to take registration then. Early registration was made available for only those students who were enrolled during the 23-24 school year and whose payments were in good standing. There is an annual registration fee of $50 per child. For families with more than one child participating, the registration fee is $50 for the first child and $10 for each additional child. All registration payments are due when you complete your form.  

    Payments should be made through  https://www.mypaymentsplus.com

     Weekly Tuition
    As you are reserving a space in Care for Kids, the cost is $70 per child per week, regardless of days or weeks attending. Tuition is billed by the month according to how many weeks of school there are. You will see the amount for the month at the beginning of each month. You may pay weekly, bi-weekly, or by the month. https://www.mypaymentsplus.com

    My Payments Plus cannot do Auto Pay for After School because of our inconsistent schedule.

    Please use this website for all online payments:



    Students should not bring personal devices to afterschool. Children will not be allowed to use their cell phones. Throughout the afternoon, students will be allowed to use school devices for various activities.


    Each day there will be a 30 minute quiet time that will include snacks, bathroom and reading. It is our desire that the students enjoy their afternoon activities after they have been working hard at school all day. If you feel there is a need for your child to have additional time, you will need to speak to the director personally to set up possibilities for such a time. There will not be any individualized instruction or tutoring by the faculty.


                                                   Kindergarten and first graders PLEASE keep a change of clothes in their backpack.                                                 

    Please dress your child appropriately for the weather and according to school regulations.


    Pre-K is only available for Forsyth County employees whose children attend Chestatee’s Pre-K program. Students in Pre-k should be picked up by 4:00 daily. 

    Behavior Guidelines

    We follow The Chestatee Way and expect our students to be:

    Responsible, Respectful, Problem Solvers

    We will be utilizing the school's Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) using Chessie sticks, rewards, and consequences.

    Daily Behavior

    Clip up and be rewarded with Bravo Bucks for positive behaviors

    First Incident: Warning (clip down to yellow)

    Second Incident: Time Out, student letter (clip down to red)

    Third Incident: Next Day sitting out of activities

    ** A behavior that warrants a “write up” for severe behaviors is equal to a third incident. Students who receive a third “Write Up” will be discussed and possibly lose the privilege of the after-school opportunity.
