School-Age Care program

Kindergarten–12 years

Cheli School-Age Care program provides quality “out of school” activities for children who have started kindergarten to 12 years of age. The programs are designed to enhance rather than duplicate the school day, are affiliated with The Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and offer 4-H programs. Scheduled developmentally appropriate activities in core program areas and technology are planned based on knowledge of youth development and needs and interests of the youth enrolled. Cheli SAC program is DoD certified and nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA). Cheli School Age Care is open from 6 a.m.–6 p.m.

The program offers Before School Care, After School Care, and Before and After School Care during the school year. When school is in session, the School Age staff walk the youth to and from school to the program. Times are based on the school’s hours of operation. Full day care is offered when school is not in session. Cheli SAC is closed on weekends, federal holidays and when necessary due to inclement weather or natural disasters. Rates are not prorated for above mentioned closures. On PACAF Family Days, SAC will be opened on a reservation for care basis. Credits will be given to families not requiring care on PACAF Family Days.

Hourly Care–$4 per hour

Given the demands placed on military families, the need for occasional care can be particularly relevant. Because hourly care can be used in any situation and for any reason, it helps you when you need care other than full-time care. This includes intermittent needs for child care because of work schedules, doctor visits, illnesses, emergencies, or support to cope with daily or unique stressors. Hourly care is offered during normal operating hours when children are present. Spaces are based on space availability, and provided on a first come, first serve basis. Parents or guardians can make reservations up to 30 days in advance. Hourly care during regular and outside normal operating hours are offered in our FCC Homes. Parents will need to provide updated shot records and fill out an hourly care packet.

To support the continued well-being of all children/youth in the programs and become more formally involved in the CYP, you are encouraged to participate in the Parent Advisory Board (PAB). Members of the PAB provide recommendations for improving services, help plan unique events, and discuss other opportunities for parent participation.
