AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Stiles Point, James Island & Harbor View Elementary Schools
2017-2018
James Island Presbyterian Foundation

The James Island Presbyterian Foundation (JIPF) provides an after school program for children in K-5 to 5th grades attending Stiles Point, James Island or Harbor View elementary schools.

Children are transported to our campus either by fifteen (15) or thirty (30) passenger buses operated by the JIPF.

The typical after school program schedule for students from these elementary schools is as follows:

2:15 – 2:20 PM Bus Pick-Up
2:30 – 2:45 PM Arrival
2:45 – 3:15 PM Circle Time, Snacks, Announcements
3:15 – 4:30 PM Homework Room or Indoor/Outside Recreation
4:30 – 6:00 PM Indoor or Outside Recreation, Clean-Up

The fee for the after school program for students attending these schools is as follows:

Category After School

1st Child/Family $75.00/week
2nd Child/Family $55.00/week
Family Registration Fee $75.00/annual

Extended child care service is also available from 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM on days when the Charleston County School District is closed for teacher in-service, workdays and holidays.

The weekly fee listed above is for a full week (5 days) of after school program care and transportation. This amount is payable every week during the school year with the exception of days or weeks the Charleston County School District is closed due to in-serve days, workdays or holidays. We do not provide ‘drop-in’ or ‘occasional’ child care service. School closings will result in a proportional reduction for each day the public schools are closed and your child does not attend our after school program. Fee adjustments may also be made if the schools are closed for extended holiday periods, teacher in-service days, etc. and your child does attend the extended child care program and/or holiday day camps we provide.

Please note our after school program closes promptly at 6:00 PM. Parents/guardians who pick-up their child (ren) after the regular closing time will be charged a late fee of $1.00/minute.

The JIPF operates a number of community services including the Lowcountry Pastoral Counseling Center (Charleston, James Island, Summerville, Mt. Pleasant, North Charleston, West Ashley, Goose Creek), summer day camp, pre-school/child care center, the Mission House, Seeds of Hope Farmer’s Market as well as the after school program.

Receipts and expenditures for all of these ministries are handled through a central accounting and billing system. It is possible that the individual recording your payment will not have information about you, your child or the after school program. It is important, therefore, to please list on the memo portion of your check the name of your child and “ASP”. This will help in accurately crediting your payment to your account. We also accept debit and credit card payment. Questions regarding your account should be directed to Ms. Lauryn Bong or Mrs. Louise Hatton-Conway, 795-3137.

Payment for after school care is expected on the first day on the week. After school care will be discontinued for families whose accounts are more than two (2) weeks behind in payment.

Thank you for your attention to these payment expectations.
