What will my child do at Afternoon Adventure Club?
After school the children are dismissed to Adventure Club where attendance is taken, staff makes daily announcements, and the children have snack, and/or free choice activity stations. The remainder of the afternoon is committed to activities planned by children &/or staff, homework club, outdoor recess if the weather allows, gym recess if the weather is bad, and free choice activities.
How much does Adventure Club cost?
Adventure Club tuition is broken down into monthly installments based upon the number of school days scheduled for the year, spread evenly over the school year. Your monthly fees are set according to the number of days, and times of day, which you choose to have your child(ren) attend. Monthly costs will also be effected by the use of Occasional Care Cards or if your family registers for any Early Dismissal or Full Release Day care during the month. Refer to the Fee Schedule, Family Handbook, and/or Early Dismissal/Full Release contracts for details on what your monthly fee should be. If you need further information contact Chris Stuckel: (314) 963-6440 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I enroll my child in Adventure Club?
You must complete a Registration Form and submit it with payment to the Ambrose Family Center. It should be noted that Adventure Club has, in the past, had a waiting list for enrolled families. The status of “Actively Enrolled”, or “On Waiting List” will depend on Adventure Club being able to safely balance the staff to child ratio. Registering as soon as possible is advisable.

Families registering will receive a notification of their enrollment status after the established enrollment period’s deadline. The Ambrose Family Center will notify you of your status as actively enrolled or if you have been placed on the waiting list after that time.
