Overview

After the regular school day, our Extended Daycare Program continues to enrich the Saint Patrick School’s TK-8th grade students with the core values of our school day’s Vincentian education.  In a welcoming after school climate, our team of caring educators supports students in achieving daily, weekly, or special project goals, whether those goals are school-required or personally inspired.   

GOALS
  • Provide a safe, inclusive environment for children to further build healthy relationships within the Saint Patrick School community.
  • Reinforce school day Discipline with Purpose expectations as well as offer incentives for showing the following qualities during program time: Leadership, Problem-Solving, Respect, Instruction Awareness, Social Skills, and Service to others.
  • Offer structured, guided program elements which include opening/closing circle, snack time, homework sessions, hands-on projects, and choice time
  • Invite our parent volunteers (for volunteer hours) as well as our eligible, neighboring communities to share their expertise with our students during a 5-week internship model.*
  • *volunteers must have cleared fingerprinting and complete the online “Shield the Vulnerable” training at www.shieldthevulnerable.org.

Students not registered for Extended Care are considered drop-ins.   If a child is not picked up by 6:00PM parents will be charged $15.00 for every 15 minutes that a parent is late.

Charges for children who regularly use Extended Care begin immediately at the end of school (either 12:30 or 3:00 pm). Additionally, any student (not supervised by a parent/guardian) who fails to leave the schoolyard 15 minutes after school dismissal will be taken to Extended Care.

Please note that there is no morning day care.  Students may come on campus at 7:15AM knowing that faculty are in the school building, and the door at the back of the school will be unlocked.

You must sign your child(ren) out from Extended Care. If your child is not signed out, it is assumed he/she left at 6:00PM.
