ExtraCare Class Size Limitations

The State of Colorado limits KindiePrep ExtraCare daily class sizes to a maximum of 20 in the morning class (7:00 am - 8:30 am) and 30 in the afternoon class (3:00 pm - 5:30 pm). Classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis through a reservation process that is only complete when the dates have been scheduled through the ExtraCare front office.

Payment and Scheduling

ExtraCare dates must be scheduled through the KindiePrep front office no less than one month in advance of the first date of attendance. Spots in each session of ExtraCare are very limited and reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. You will need to fill out a calendar (located at the KP front desk) for your child's attendance and turn it into the Assistant Director.  Your SmartCare account will be charged at the end of each month.

Late Pick-Ups from ExtraCare

Late pick-up from afternoon ExtraCare are strongly discouraged at KindiePrep. Please make arrangements to arrive on time every day. In the case of late pick-ups, our first priority is your student’s safety and reassurance.
  • UP TO 5 MINUTES LATE - $50.00 Late Fee
    If your child is not picked up within 5 minutes after the ExtraCare program ends (by 5:35 pm), a $50.00 late fee will be assessed to you. At this point, every reasonable effort will be made to contact you to determine that you are on the way.

  • 10 MINUTES LATE OR MORE – Call to Douglas County Sheriff in addition to $50.00 Late Fee
    If we cannot reach you and your child is not picked up within 10 minutes after the ExtraCare program ends (by 5:40 pm), the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department will be contacted AND a $50.00 late fee will be assessed to you. KindiePrep staff will check all classrooms and complete a sign-out sheet daily to ensure that all students have been picked up and accounted for by authorized adults.

ExtraCare Refunds

Because the ExtraCare program is funded and run based on pre-scheduled participation - and other parents are turned away as a result - there are no refunds for cancellations or missed dates. Dates scheduled but not used are not transferable to other dates. There are no refunds for ExtraCare if a family withdraws from the KindiePrep program.
