Betty Adams Elementary
Bear Creek Elementary
Green Gables Elementary
Hackberry Hill Elementary
Kendallvue Elementary
Kendrick Lakes Elementary
Semper Elementary
South Lakewood Elementary

We do not accept CCAP at our Maple Grove and Mitchell locations. Limited space is available. Prior to contacting the Site Manager for availability and entrance in the program, all CCAP paperwork must be completed. You must have an authorization before registering for care at any of the above locations.

RRCC SACC will only be accepting CCAP for Jefferson and Adams County.


Parents must swipe their cards on a daily basis. Failure to do so may result in termination of care. All parent fees are due on the first of each month. If payment is not received your child(ren) may be suspended from care and your caseworker will be notified. 

If your child(ren) are absent more than two times a month you will be charged for any days that were signed up for, but nor attended.

If there is an error with your case and/or authorization it is the parent/guardian's sole responsibility to notify their case worker within 24 hours.

Dear CCAP Family,

Thank you for choosing Red Rocks Community College School-Age-Child Care as your child care provider! We are thrilled for a year full of fun and learning.

This letter is to notify you of three important policies as a CCAP family.

  1. CCAP families are given 2 excused absences per month from CCAP (Adams County families: You receive 1 excused absence per month). Any additional absences will be charged to you directly from our billing department at the rate CCAP would have paid us.
    • What is considered an absence? An absence is when you are authorized from CCAP to attend and you selected the day on your financial contract, but did not show up to care that day.
  2. All CCAP families must swipe daily. This is essential to ensure continued success of CCAP in our facilities. Using the 9 days is not an appropriate way to log attendance. If a family continually does not swipe in a timely fashion care will be terminated due to the potential risk of incorrect payments from CCAP.
  3. Please pay your parent fee no later than the 1st of each month. Failure to pay at the first of each month may result in termination of care.

If you have questions regarding CCAP please contact us at: or (303) 914-6203. 

Thank you for your continued support in the success of RRCC SACC.
