Mission Statement

The Extended Care is a program designed to provide high quality care for children before and after school hours. Various developmentally appropriate activities and opportunities are provided in a loving, Christian, culturally sensitive atmosphere.

The Extended Care Program focuses on providing a safe environment which strengthens Catholic values and enhances the well-being of the child.

The Extended Care staff will support the regular school program by enhancing the student's social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual development during the time they spend in before and after school care.
