Victory Christian Academy Building

Summer Enrichment Program

Victory Christian Academy offers summer enrichment classes for children ages 4 through 12 (3 year olds accepted on a case-by-case basis). This program is designed to keep academic skills sharp and provide opportunities to explore various themes in a camp-type environment. VCA is dedicated to providing quality education with a distinctively Christian atmosphere. Besides practicing academic skills in various fun ways, there will be plenty of time for relaxing, fun activities such as games, swimming, arts and crafts, picnics, and other activities.  Camp hours are from 7:00 am to 5:45 pm, with activities starting at 9:00 am and ending at 4:00 pm.  Parents may choose to enroll their child in as many or as few weeks as they like, with advanced notice. Please know that if you have questions about anything, you can contact the school at anytime at 962-1632 and we will be glad to help in any way we can.

Policies and Procedures

Tuition

  • There is a non-refundable $25.00 registration fee, per family.
  • If your child is in care 5 days a week for 5 or more hours per day the weekly rate is $140.00
  • The daily rate (more than 5 hours) is $35.00
  • The part-time rate (5 hours or less) is $25.00
  • Tuition is to be paid on Friday for the completed week of childcare. There will be a grace period until Tuesday; after Tuesday there will be a $10.00/day late payment fee.

 

Sign In/Sign Out

  • Upon arrival and departure at VCA every child will be required to sign in/sign out so that we have a record of when your child arrived and left.

 

Meals

  • Children are responsible for bringing their own breakfast, lunch, and snack, as well as their own beverage.  
  • Occasional special trips will be arranged to go out to lunch. We will give advanced notice as to when this will be.

 

Returned Check Policy

  • There will be a $30.00 charge for all returned checks.

 

Activity Fees

  • You will be required to pay for days of swimming or furnish your own pool pass that can be obtained from Indianola Parks and Recreation.

 

Supplies

  • All students are encouraged to bring and leave a water bottle at the school to use during the day, walking trips, and outside play.
  • Children who will be taking naps or having rest time are encouraged to bring a pillow and/or blanket (whatever will make rest time comfortable).
  • Each child should have sun block applied before they come to school. It would be a good idea to have an extra bottle of sun block to leave at school in their cubbies so that it can be reapplied when necessary.  
  • Each child will need a swimming suit, sandals, and a towel to take with them on swim days. It would be best if these were all brought in a small bag. 

 

Drop-off/Pick-up

  • Children may be dropped off no earlier than 7:00 a.m. unless other arrangements have been made at least 48 hours in advance. There will be a $5.00 charge for every 5 minutes early your child is dropped off. These fees will still have to be paid if you make arrangements and then do not decide to bring them early.
  • Children are to be picked up no later than 5:45 pm.
  • There will be a $5.00 per 5 minutes late fee and this is to be paid immediately upon arrival.If you are aware that you are going to be more than 15 minutes later than what is your child’s normal pick-up time, please call ahead and let us know.
  • No child will be released to anyone who is not on the authorized list of people to pick them up unless we have a written note, or verbal communication directly from a parent.
