Owls' Nest Before & After School Program


Welcome to the Owls' Nest Before & After School Program! We look forward to having your child in our care. Please take the time to review the parent handbook, go through the welcome packet, and complete any forms required for attending Owls' Nest. Please understand that child is not allowed to attend our program until all paperwork is submitted, prior to their attendance, per state licensing requirements. Owls' Nest is an optional paid child care program run by Aspen Ridge Preparatory School and licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services. We are happy to be of service to our ARPS families any day ARPS is in session.

Signing up for Owls' Nest
Step One: Click here to register and pay for your child through Sign-Up Genius. Registration is on a daily basis and is limited to 30 students per morning/afternoon session. Payment is required up front prior to attending Owls' Nest. 
Step Two: Owls' Nest uses an online software system called Sandbox to register students, sign in/out students, and keep updated information regarding students. 
Upon your first arrival to Owls’ Nest, your child(ren) will be registered within the Sandbox system and set up with an account. When they are picked up by a parent or guardian, we will make sure all information is set up in your account and ask the parent/guardian to create a 4-digit passcode that will be used to check in/out your child(ren). You must use the 4-digit code to check in and out your child(ren) every time they are picked up or dropped off.

Paying for Owls' Nest
Sign Up Genius is the online program that we use to receive payments for Owls' Nest. You must pay ahead of time in order to officially secure your spot for any given day. Please understand that if you do not pay up front, your spot will be immediately forfeited. (This is to ensure that we are allowing as many students as possible the opportunity to use our before/after care program.) Daily rates are as follows:
  • $10 per morning session
  • $15 per regular afternoon session
  • $20 per early release afternoon session
These are flat rates that will be charged for any amount of time spent at Owls' Nest for each session.
