Annual Enrollment Process

This is a pre-registered, "pay-to-stay" program. Before your child can attend, you must register online to schedule monthly payments to be automatically withdrawn from your checking account or your credit card (3% convenience fee added). This is where you choose the program option best for your family (REGULAR or AS NEEDED) and apply any discounts.


  • Students must sign in upon arrival (front desk/conference room) and a parent or designated person must sign them out (front desk) before leaving.
  • Students may use their personal electronic devices or available day-loaner devices (see the BYOD guidelines for details).
  • Students may bring their own snack(s).
  • With written approval from a parent, your child can sign them self out to go to a sports practice, music lesson or tutoring.
  • We are only responsible for your student(s) while they are signed into the ASR.

Payment Policies

  • Any student not picked up or in an supervised activity by 3:30 p.m. will be sent to the After School Room and will be charged for their attendance.
  • At 3:45 p.m. you will be charged for the entire day regardless of when your child is signed out.
  • Due to the overall value of our program pricing, no adjustments will be made for missed days (school breaks, snow days, unexpected school closings, illness, etc.).
  • Enrollment in the program may be terminated if account not kept current.
