GAP FAQ

Our family is new to Grace and we’ll need after school care. What must I do to secure a spot for my child/ren in the Grace After-school Program (GAP)?

When your child has been accepted to attend Grace School, simply go to www.graceschool.org/student-life/after-school to register and make payment for your child by clicking on the link for the corresponding school year.

What should I do if I will be late picking up my child from GAP?

Please call (713) 267-5099 if you will be late picking up your child. We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise where a 6:00 pm pick-up is not possible. A staff member will be available to stay with your child; however, late pickup fees will be assessed starting at 6:01 pm. Fees are $5 for the first 10 minutes and $2/minute after 6:10 pm.

In consideration of our staff and their personal time, please plan accordingly to have your child/ren picked up in a timely manner. Continuous late pick-up may result in suspension or termination of GAP enrollment.

How will I be charged every month?

Once you are registered, you will receive an email reminder on the 20th of every month to make payment by the 25th for the subsequent month. Payments are accepted online through the link provided on the GAP web page.

What if I purchase a 5 day block and realize I need additional days during the month?

Additional 5 day blocks may be purchased or you may roll into the monthly enrollment option, if you prefer.

May either of the enrollment options be shared between my children?

Only the 5 day block option may be shared between children of the same family as long as a registration fee has been paid for each.

May I roll over unutilized days for a given month into the subsequent month?

No. All unutilized days will expire at the end of the month for both enrollment options.

If I have paid the registration fee, does my child have to attend consecutive months?

No. The registration fee secures your spot for the entire school year. Once registration is complete, your child may attend GAP any month as long as the fees for care are prepaid.

Is GAP open on early release days and conference days?

Yes. Students registered and enrolled in the monthly payment option may attend at no additional charge. Those students registered and enrolled in a block payment option will use one day from their purchased block(s) for the month on these days.

If I am late picking up my child from Grace School and I have not registered/paid for GAP, can my child still attend?

No. Every student attending GAP must be registered, and payment made in advance. Please contact the business office at (713) 267-8702 or return to the Grace School website to register and make payment.
