When capacity allows, Adventure Club accepts children receiving childcare subsidies from the Family Support Division. Please contact our office prior to enrolling to verify we have space for your child. If accepted, you will need to contact your caseworker if and inform them your children will be a part of Adventure Club and the DVN associated with the school.
State policy requires that the parent who requested the childcare assistance complete a child attendance record each month. Adventure Club attendance policy requires that children attend at least 30 minutes per day and miss no more than five days per month. Fees for absences are assessed at the daily rate, starting with the 6th absence and each time a child attends 29 minutes or less in a day. Parents are required to sign the FSD Recipient and Adventure Club Agreement. Adventure Club reserves the right to dismiss or suspend families that do not adhere to policies. Please see our Parent Handbook (page 17) for specific details.
Adventure Club Scholarship Program
When funding allows, Adventure Club may offer partial scholarships on a first-come, first-served basis to families that do not qualify for state child care assistance. Funding does not carry over from school year to summer or summer to school year. Adventure Club reserves the right to dismiss or suspend funding to families that do not adhere to policies. Please see our Parent Handbook (page 26) for specific details.
Two forms of paperwork are required before a family may be considered for this type of assistance.
- The downloadable Scholarship Application.
- A CPS free/reduced letter for the current or upcoming school year. The Columbia Public Schools Nutrition Services office can be reached at (573) 214-3480.
We require families that fall within the State of Missouri Childcare Subsidy income guidelines to provide additional paperwork prior to scholarship approval.
