Afterschool Program

Our Afterschool care is for children in Kindgergarten to 5th grade. Our desire is to offer high quality After School care focusing on developing positive self-esteem, as well as enhancing academic growth and independence. Our program provides a safe, fun, and Christ-filled atmosphere with younger and older children placed in separate groups. Our afternoons are filled with healthy snacks, homework help, supervised free play on playgrounds, and group fun games. No cell phones or tablets may be used while participating in LifeKids programs.

Transportation is provided for children enrolled in Kindergarten – 5th Grade. Schools available for pick up are: Ann E. Smith Elementary, Highland Elementary, Madison Ave Lower & Upper, Madison Station and Mannsdale Lower & Upper Elementary. Children are welcome to attend from other schools if the parent can arrange transportation to LifeKids. Other schools can be added to our wait list and we will consider providing transportation from that school when 5 children are available to register. All children will be properly restrained when transported, following the Mississippi Car Seat Safety Laws. All drivers will be properly licensed and trained. All vehicles will have current insurance, safety inspection stickers, and licenses.

Please call LifeKids by 12:00 noon if your child will be absent, is not at school, or will not need transportation to LifeKids for any reason. We have strict policies that our van drivers must follow regarding not leaving the school until each child is accounted for, so it is very important that parents notify LifeKids of absences. Only authorized adults 18 & over are allowed to accompany a child in and out of LifeKids.
