CHILD CARE AT CAVS
Child Care is available to all Carden Arbor View School students before school beginning at 6:45 a.m. and after school until 6:30 p.m. Any student dropped off prior to 7:30 a.m. or picked up after 3:15 p.m. MUST AND WILL BE signed into Child Care and applicable fees will apply.
Students MUST leave campus with a parent/guardian or authorized adult. Authorization can be written, or verbally communicated to CAVS staff. Students may leave campus alone, ONLY with written permission from a parent/guardian.
Students MUST be signed out of Child Care by an adult. CAVS staff is not permitted to sign children out of Child Care. However, students not signed into Child Care by an adult will be signed in by CAVS staff. Students on campus during Child Care hours are required to sign in to Child Care and MAY NOT “hang out” anywhere on or off campus. There is no charge for Child Care if the parent is engaged in Parent Participation volunteer work or has a required meeting with staff. However, children left to be supervised by Child Care staff will be charged even if the parent is on campus but not involved in a school specific task. Parents socializing on campus must keep their children with them at all times to avoid Child Care charges.

Contact the Business Office to make arrangements to be invoiced for monthly green sheet Child Care or have an automatic charge set up for occasional Child Care once your white sheet runs out.
If you do not purchase a pre-paid Child Care sheet you will be invoiced at the drop-in and billed Child Care rates.
HOLIDAY BREAK CHILD CARE - $35 per child per day
Child Care will be offered during holiday weeks provided there is enough interest to justify staffing. Sign-up sheets will be posted at the Child Care room for parents to indicate the days and times they will require care during the break. Parents will be notified one week prior to the holiday as to the decision. Holiday care is not included in previously purchased Child Care and is due in advance.
NON-STUDENT EVENT CHILD CARE

CHILD CARE FINANCIAL AID
Families that qualify for Financial Aid through FAST for the regular school year, are eligible for reduced rate Pre-Paid Child Care (green and white sheets). Reduced fees do not apply to drop in child care (blue sheet). Contact the Director of Business Services to sign up.
Child Care is provided at no charge between 2:30 and dismissal for Kindergarten siblings of students enrolled in higher grades or those waiting for an after school activity to begin at 3:30 p.m. Siblings in Child Care after 3:15 p.m. will be charged. Children left in Child Care to wait for a sibling participating in an after school activity are also charged for Child Care.
REGULAR STUDY HALL
Study Hall is available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to students who are checked into Child Care, as a quiet place to do homework. Study Hall sessions are staffed by faculty who can offer assistance but not tutoring. Students make a voluntary choice to attend Study Hall and regular Child Care fees apply.
TEACHER DIRECTED STUDY HALL
There are times when a teacher will require a student attend Study Hall for assistance with a particular lesson. Teacher directed Study Hall is teacher initiated and required paperwork must be completed by staff and approved by administration. Teacher directed Study Hall is not a decision made by the student or parent. Students will be signed into Child Care for security reasons but teacher directed Study Hall will be provided at no charge. However, students must be picked up at 4:15 p.m. otherwise they will be signed into regular Child Care and standard fees will apply.
AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
After school activities are offered as a convenience to our families and will be taught by either CAVS staff or carefully selected outside vendors. Payment to outside vendors should be made directly to them but may be left in the office. Charges related to CAVS activities should be paid in the office. Sign-up sheets and/or information regarding after school activities can be found in the front office.
Students attending after school activities will be signed into Child Care for security purposes. Students must be signed out from Child Care after the activity has ended. There is no Child Care charge incurred during the period of time the student is participating in the sponsored activity. However, students who are not picked up from Child Care immediately following the activity will be charged regular Child Care fees. Children waiting on campus for an after school activity that begins after 3:30 p.m. will be charged Child Care fees.
After School Sports is separate from activities offered on campus. Students who return from After School Sports to the campus and are not immediately picked up by an adult, will be signed into Child Care and fees apply.
Carden Arbor View School does not offer a tutoring program. However, parents may contract individually with teaching staff for tutoring services. Although staff are permitted to tutor on campus, CAVS does not provide tracking, monitoring, quality standards or any other educational evaluation related to the services provided or received. Fees and payment for tutoring are between the individuals concerned.
Children tutored on campus will be signed in and out of Child Care by either the parent or teacher. Fees will only apply to children who wait in Child Care either prior to or after their tutoring session.
