The Eagles' Nest
There are many demands placed on today’s parents, and we know that you want the very best care for your child when you are not available yourself. Open to all kindergarten through eighth grade students, Eagles’ Nest is our extended day program established to provide childcare in a before and/or after school setting. During your child’s stay in the Eagles’ Nest, he or she will receive supervised care, which incorporates homework time, physical activity, craft and/or cooking projects, and outdoor play.
Hours and Payment
Eagles’ Nest is open from 6:30 to 8:15 a.m. and 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, during the school year. Please make your payments through the school office, as they handle all Eagles’ Nest accounting. We encourage each family who uses Eagles’ Nest regularly to pre-pay for each month’s hours; this will simplify our accounting process and allow us to better use our resources for your children. We are happy to credit any hours you don’t use for the next month, which credit will show on your monthly statement. We bill Eagles’ Nest hours in 15-minute blocks.
Eagles’ Nest may be open on certain holidays, teacher in-service days, and conference days. You will find detailed schedules in the weekly office newsletter.
School Delays / Cancellations
If Bethlehem Lutheran School is on a two-hour delay, Eagles’ Nest will open at 7:30 a.m. unless otherwise noted. If the school closes due to inclement weather, we will also close Eagles’ Nest.
