JCPRD Out of School Time Programs are located at the elementary schools. Most of our OST Programs operate out of the school cafeteria/commons daily. There may be changes to this based upon school activities.
Fees are charged weekly, every Friday, in advance of services. Fees must be set up on recurring payments via credit or debit card with our Registration Office at 913-831-3359.
Fees are determined by the overall cost of the program and are charged at the same weekly rate regardless of attendance. Fees are not prorated for absences, holidays, or emergency closures.
Enrollment information can be found at www.jcprd.com/1207/Olathe-OST. You must submit your online Registration Form, Additional Required Forms, and Medication Administration Form (only if your child will take medication during program hours). Once our staff have processed your paperwork (typically 24-48 hours), you will receive an email confirming your placement and requesting that you call our Registration office to set up recurring payments.
Once you receive an e-mail confirming your enrollment from our Registration Office you will call in to pay the Registration fee and set up your recurring fees on a debit/credit card. The Registration Office phone number is 913-831-3359 and they are open 8:30a-5:00p. Payments will then be charged weekly, in advance of care, beginning the Friday prior to your child’s start date.

Before School includes a snack, and time to get ready for the day. Choices for homework time, quiet reading, or games with friends are typical choices.

Always send sensible shoes and weather appropriate clothing for your children, as we will spend a portion of our day outside.
