Mission: The mission of UCMC After School Care/Out of School Care is to provide a safe and enjoyable childcare environment for children after school and on out of school days year round. UCMC After School/Out of School Care program will provide educational activities to promote and enhance each child’s spiritual, physical, mental, and social well-being.
Who can attend?
Our program is created for students k-rising 6th. We provide safe, affordable and personalized childcare for Union Cross Academy, Caleb’s Creek Elementary and NCLA (with limitations). If your child is a student at NCLA please call the director for more information.
Transportation is provided from Caleb’s Creek and NCLA. The school bus brings Union Cross students to the center in the afternoon.
Parents remember to set up the bus assignment with the school. Our physical address is 1780 Union Cross Rd. Kernersville.
A healthy afternoon snack is provided in the afternoon, but your child is welcome to bring their own snack. If your child has special dietary needs you may send snacks to store at our location for your child’s use only.
Homework help: Each day the children have a designated quiet 30-minutes to finish their homework before you pick them up. During that time, staff is available for questions and general help. If the child finishes their homework, they are encouraged to practice reading.
Arts/Crafts: Art and craft supplies are available for the children’s use. Group activities are done mostly during breaks.
Devotions and Prayer: Each day a 15-minute devotion is completed when all children arrive “in house”. Prayer is said by a child volunteer before snack.
Outside: Weather permitting, children have the opportunity to play in one of our three play areas; “soccer” field, playground and blacktop.
Before School Care: Monday- Friday open 7:00 a.m.
Children free play until it is time to take them to school. We will drop the children off at Union Cross Academy, NCLA and Caleb’s Creek.
We have a great staff consisting of Jack, Tasha, Catherine and Megan. During breaks you will meet some other faces; Lilly, Aidan, and Logan. We look forward to another great school year with your family!

If school is called off due to inclement weather the center will also be closed. We follow the WSFC school system calendar only. NCLA may or may not follow this calendar and you may have to make other arrangements for your child if their calendars don’t match.
If the children get out of school early due to inclement weather we will receive Union Cross and go pick up Caleb’s Creek and NCLA. We will close as many hours early as the children were released.
Example: It has just been announced the children will be getting out 2 hours early due to weather. We will get them at the early dismissal time and then closed 2 hours early instead of 5:50 we would be closing at 3:50. This should buy you an additional 2 hours of time to get situated at work before you need to leave for the early dismissal.

Children should be able to participate in all activities. If your child is unable to play outside due to sickness then the child is too sick to be in the program.

Children arriving with symptoms of communicable disease will remain with a staff member until a parent or designated representative can come for the child.

If an injury occurs to your child while in the care of UCMC Out of School Care program and a staff member is aware of the injury, then the staff member will complete an injury/accident form.
Please sign the form stating that you are aware of the injury when you come to pick up the child from the center. If an injury is considered a minor injury (example: minor bruises, minor cuts or scrapes), then the staff will do minor first aid (wash the wound with soap and water, provide the child ice or a band-aid to put on the injury).
The parent will be notified as soon as the parent comes to pick up their child that day. If the injury is more serious and the staff members feel that the injury requires attention as soon as possible then the parent shall be notified immediately. If UCMC Out of School Care staff is unable to contact the parents then the emergency contact shall be notified. If the injury is a life-threatening emergency, then 911 will be contacted immediately and the parents will be contacted as soon as possible after 911 is called. If the child has to ride in an emergency vehicle then one of the staff members will ride with the child to the hospital. The staff member will stay at the hospital until the parents of the child arrive if possible. The emergency information form must be completed and signed before UCMC can provide care for your child. We cannot provide care for a child whose parent does not allow the center to provide emergency care for the child.
If a child requires medication while in the care of UCMC Out of School Care then the parents must complete and sign a center-provided medication form. No medicines will be given to the child without the parent’s completion and signature on the medication form. Medicines shall be kept locked up in the care of director. Do not send the medicine with the child to take on his own. If the medication is a prescription medicine then the prescription label and the child’s name must be on the prescription bottle.
