Family Service Ideas Summer 2017

Family Service Ideas: Summer 2017

Summer months bring long days, warm weather, school vacations - and great opportunities for kids to volunteer and families, camps, and youth groups to serve together. While service improves the community, kids also benefit:

  • It gives children and teens an identity and purpose.
  • They develop vital 21st Century skills like critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.
  • Families who help others together benefit from important quality time. Volunteering provides an opportunity to connect with your child and learn new things together.

Some suggestions for a successful service experience:

  1. Start with things your kids love to do.
  2. Consider issues your kids care about.
  3. Combine passions + issues for impact.
  4. Encourage, support and help your kids learn.

When you're ready to plan your summer, you can find 20 summer service ideas at www.YSA.org/summer

Summer 2016 Information for Eagles Landing

Dear Parents of KPrep - Grade 4 students at Edyth B. Lindner Elementary School Building,

Welcome! We’re so glad you’re inquiring about our CHCA Eagles Landing After School Program. Please take the time to read this webpage and the parent handbook so you can understand our program, policies, and procedures in detail.

Our after school program is designed to serve working parents needing regular, ongoing childcare for their students in grades KPrep – 4 at the Edyth B. Lindner Elementary School Building from August through June on regular dismissal days. There are 2 fee options:

  1. AS NEEDED students pay a daily rate each day they attend from August to June; there is a minimum fee each month and additional days attended are added at the daily rate and billed monthly.
  2. REGULAR students pay a reduced weekly rate each month regardless of the number of days they attend. This option is best for students who will attend 4 or 5 days per week. Discounts are available for families who choose to pay per semester or annually.

All students must be registered online before they attend. Skip the registration fee with early bird registration from 08/01/16 - 08/25/16 at 11:59 p.m. Our program begins Thursday, 08/25/16 with regular program hours from 3:15 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

We will have a short information meeting in the EBL building cafeteria on Wednesday, 08/24/16, 8:30 a.m. - 9:15 a.m. Please email the director at Eagles.Landing@chca-oh.org if you have questions that were not answered in any of our online information.

Our friendly staff looks forward to serving you!
Cathy Andry, Director

General registration and enrollment process information

Before your child can attend, you must:

Skip the registration fee with early bird registration from 08/01/16 - 08/25/16 at 11:59 p.m.
  2. Submit a monthly calendar by the 1st of each month to communicate which days your child will attend and if they have any extra-curricular activities while in our care. This may be submitted via:

Release of children

A parent or chaperone will sign the child out of the program each day and should be prepared to show appropriate ID upon pick-up. Children will be allowed to leave with persons other than the parent only if written or verbal permission has been given to the director. If your child attends after school activities (e.g. tutoring, soccer, American Heritage Girls, Melody Makers, etc.) these must be communicated via your child’s monthly calendar. Make changes to your child’s calendar by emailing Eagles.Landing@chca-oh.org. For safety’s sake, your child must check in with us and then proceed to their activity. The sign-out book will be available at each location upon pick-up and parents must include the time they pick up.

Withdrawal from the program

Our program is designed to be a year-long commitment; however, there is no contract. A parent can discontinue use at the end of any quarter by notifying the Program Director at Eagles.Landing@chca-oh.org at least 14 days before the quarter ends. A final billing will be issued the month following the end of the quarter.
