Before School Care

  • Registration is now open for Kannapolis City Schools’ Before School Care program at each of our elementary schools. Families may register their children by completing an online form below.

    Early drop off will run from 7:00 a.m. to 8:05 a.m. each school day. The cost is $65 per month. Payment is still required if the child is enrolled in the program and absent from school. If payments are late, Kannapolis City Schools will charge a fee of $10. Please note, a full months payment is made for December and covers the two weeks of December, as well as two weeks in June. No payment is due in June.

    The total cost for Before School care for the 2023-24 school year will be $585.00.  

    This can be paid using one of three options:

    1. 1 time full payment of $585.00 submitted August 7, 2023.  
    2. 2 equal payments of $292.50 submitted August 7, 2023, and January 3, 2024.

    The bell schedule for elementary schools is 8:35 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The regular car-rider drop off time for elementary schools begins at 8:05 a.m. If elementary families need to drop off students before 8:20 a.m., they may use the before school care that will be offered at each school. Families that need before school care prior to 7:00 a.m. may use other child care providers in the area. For families that need financial assistance, the YMCA offers scholarships for its before school care program.

    On inclement weather days when school is cancelled or delayed, Kannapolis City Schools will also cancel or delay its before school care service.

    First payment must be received by August 7th, 2023.
