Before School Care Grades K-5
Archway offers Before School Care to children in grades K-5. This service is provided Monday through Friday from 7:15 AM to 7:40 AM and students are supervised by an Archway staff member. Parents do not need to commit to a number of days or weeks. Use is on an “as needed” basis. Payment must be made in advance. Payment information is below.
This is not a structured time, but designed to be a before school study period. Children are released at 7:40 AM to go to their classrooms.
Payment: The cost is $3 per child per day. You can purchase a “card” online for $30 which is good for 10 days of care (it does not have to be used consecutively and can be used for any student). When you drop off your child at the school’s main entrance on the West side of the building, your account will be noted. Once you have used up your 10 days you will be notified of the need to purchase another card.
Cards must be purchased prior to using this service. Payment cannot be made at the time of drop off – all payment must be made through the front office or online. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the front desk at (480) 855-6474 and speak with Mrs. Fox.
