KCS Before School Care

Kannapolis City Schools now offers Before School care for elementary age students. Families may enroll their children by clicking here to complete an online application form. They also may download an application form here and return the completed form to their child’s elementary school. Application forms also are available in each elementary school office. 


KCS provides the before school care option at each of its elementary schools from 7:30 - 8:15 a.m. each school day. The cost for each child is $2.50 per school day. Families must pre-pay for the service in 20-day increments of $50 each. We have put a table below that shows when each payment is due during the 2017-2018 school year. Families are not charged for teacher work days or holidays. However, they must pay if their child is absent from school and enrolled in the program.

KCS Before School Care Payment Plan

Date when payment is due


(per child)

At time of registration



















There is a registration fee of $10. Families that register between payment dates will prepay a prorated amount of $2.50 per day. If payments are late, KCS will charge a fee of $10.


Families may pay by cash, check, or credit card. Anyone wishing to pay by credit card may click here or go to the website of their child’s elementary school (under "Parent Links") to find a payment link. 

The bell schedule for elementary schools is 8:45 a.m. until 3:40 p.m. The regular car-rider drop off time for elementary schools begins at 8:15 a.m. If elementary families need to drop off students before 8:15 a.m., they may use the before school care that is offered at each school.


Families that need before school care prior to 7:30 a.m. may use other child care providers in the area. A list of child care providers and contact information is available by clicking here. 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, KCS will also cancel or delay its before school care service.
