Payment must be made online prior to the start of DECATS so we can make proper arrangements for mentor supervision. Please make sure you indicate the name of your scholar when completing your payment online, as company credit cards and parents with different last names make tracking payments very difficult.
Morning Extended Challenge
It begins promptly at 7:30 a.m. If you arrive prior to 7:30 a.m, please remain with your child until the mentor greets them at the door. Due to allowing for proper staffing requirements, Morning Challenge is not available for families who have not registered for the program in advance.
We do not offer daily rates for Morning Challenge.
Afternoon Extended Challenge
Afternoon Extended Challenge is from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day, except for our final day of DECATS on June 29th.
Late Pick Up
We will allow a 5 minute grace period between 4:30 - 4:35 p.m. before late fees will apply. Late fees are as follows:
4:35 - 4:45 p.m. = $10.00 per child
4:45 - 5:00 p.m. = $20.00 per child
Where is the Extended Challenge?
Extended Challenge will be in the gym of the Family Life Center.
We encourage you to have an alternative pick up for your child in the event you are running late, as we know Houston traffic can often be unpredictable. Reaching out to another DECATS family is always an option.
If your scholar is not signed up for PM Extended Challenge and is not picked up in our carpool line by 3:20 p.m., the scholar will be in Extended Challenge that day and you will be charged a rate of $25/day.
