Pre-registration Fee for 2018-2019 SMART-E Before and After School Care 
Families who need before school, after school, and/or K Play care in the 2018-2019 school year are asked to pay a non-refundable, pre-registration fee of $100 per family. Families will only need to pay one (1) pre-registration fee regardless of whether they will need morning care, K Play, and/or after school care (must participate in the lottery for after school care). This fee is in addition to your fees for care.

  • You will be billed the registration fee after your first Morning Care/K Play purchase.
  • If you have paid a registration fee at the time of after school enrollment, you will not be charged twice.
  • 2018-2019 Morning Care Only.  Pre-registration for families needing only morning care will open on August 8, 2018.
  • 2018-2019 K Play Only.  Pre-registration for families needing only K Play will open on August 8, 2018.
  • 2018-2019 After School Care Only.  Based on lottery placement, selected families are asked to confirm their placement by paying the pre-registration fee within 48 hours of notification of being selected.  Families will be sent a payment link when notified of selection.  Waitlisted families, if offered placement, are asked to confirm their placement within 48 hours of notification to confirm their space.

SMART-E Online Registration/Enrollment System

Using our online registration system (ActiveNet), parents have the ability to book Morning-Care + K-Play Monthly Pass.  This does not apply to after school care. For Morning Care and K Play, we recommend parents purchase the Monthly Pass before the deadline.  Please purchase the pass by the 5th of the month BEFORE the month that you need care.  For example if you need care in the month of December you will need to purchase the monthly pass by November 5th.  Please note, no daily purchase is available for Morning Care, K-Play, or Aftercare.

For optimal results, it is recommended that enrollment is completed on a PC or MAC, as smartphone enrollment is not always consistent. Should you encounter difficulty registering, a screen shot (emailed to smarteinfo@scsdk8.org) is necessary in order for our staff to assist you easily and promptly.


We do not allow refunds, credits, or proration after purchase of Morning/After care/K Play or the Morning-Care + K-Play Monthly Pass.   


After School Care

We require a written 30 day notice of cancellation. The 30 day notice must be received by the SMART-E Business Office BEFORE the 5th of each month. Otherwise you will be charged the full $570 tuition.

*AFTER SCHOOL CARE for 2018-19*

After school care is a 5-day per week for one school year program.
