EXTENDED CARE PROGRAM

Program History

In the Fall of 2017, St. John the Baptist Catholic School successfully administered an after school Extended Care program for the first time.  The goal was to provide students with a sense of well-being while giving parents the feeling that their child(ren) will be adequately cared for after school.

In the Fall of 2018, St. John the Baptist Catholic School continued their after school Extended Care program and successfully added a before school program as well.

Both before and after school programs returned in the Fall of 2019 with the addition of two new staff.  With the additional staff, Extended Care was now an option for parents on Early Dismissal days.

Thanks to continued support from families for the program, St. John the Baptist Catholic School has been able to continue providing this resource for parents in the 2020-2021 school year.

Program Mission and Vision

The purpose of our Extended Care Program is to provide your child(ren) with a sense of well-being while giving you the feeling that your child(ren) will be adequately cared for. Our Program follows all school rules. The care and safety of your child(ren) is our number one concern.

Your child(ren) will have fun, relax, be creative, hang out with friends, and just be kids. We focus on being considerate toward others with kindness in words and actions, cooperation, and taking turns. We also reinforce what they learn in the classroom about the importance of community while working on community projects. Children of all ages can participate in activities, work on homework, or increase certain skills. This organized structure helps students with their confidence and builds their academic skills.
