The Extended Care Program is designed to support and supplement the family by providing quality care that promotes the student’s physical, social, emotional and cognitive development through nurturing staff members in a planned environment.
Within a large family environment, the program strives to provide individual attention, security, consistency and fair treatment for students of St. Joseph School.
Though primarily designed to serve the needs of working parents, the Extended Care Program is also available to parents on a part-time or occasional basis, depending on their needs.
Every family which makes use of the Extended Care Program pays a registration fee of $50.00. Registration begins in May when school registration is held. Checks are to be made payable to St. Joseph School please put “Extended Care” or “E.C.” on memo line.
Families who use the Extended Care Program are charged according to an hourly fee schedule. The current rate is $8 per hour. There is a 10% discount for two or more children. Families are billed monthly.
Each day a supervised homework period is scheduled. Student provide their own supplies. Tutors from St. Francis may be available for special needs.
Students may be released from the Extended Care Program to participate in after school sports. Time spent under the coach’s supervision is not charged as Extended Care.
