The Latch Key Program at Lamar Avenue Church of Christ began in 1989, just after completion of our Outreach facility. This fully licensed program is for grades K through 5th and is provided so children will have a safe place to go after school from 3:00 until 6:00. Arrangements can be made for the student to be picked up at school in the church van.
Your child’s afternoon will begin with an after school snack. We generally serve a variety of sandwiches, chips, and cookies, with 100% apple juice or water to drink. You are welcome to send snacks anytime you wish. Also there is a coke machine in the kitchen area with drinks available for $1.25 each. All profits from drinks sold goes toward the funding of the Latch Key Program.
After a snack is provided, the children will be divided into age groups and given time for homework, free play, and game time. On Thursday, children will have a Bible study followed by our regular schedule. Wednesday is “movie” day with all movies being rated G or PG.
You may contact Latch Key at 903-784-3006 between 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm or if you call after regular hours, you can leave a message on our voicemail or contact our Director, James Hanley, at 903-517-8794.
