Saint George School offers before-school childcare, after-school childcare, and extended after-school childcare as an extension of the school day to accommodate the needs of our working parents. Parents are welcome to come and visit our program anytime. Before school childcare is available from 7:00 am until the school day starts. After-school childcare is available from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Extended after-school childcare is available from 3:00 -5:30 pm Monday through Friday.
If school is canceled, the after-school childcare will be canceled. Although if an early dismissal is called due to inclement weather, the after-school childcare will still remain open until 5:30 pm. In the event of a 2-hour school delay, the before-school childcare will still open at 7 am. Before or after-school childcare is not available on scheduled holiday/vacation school breaks, teacher in-service days, and early dismissal days. Saint George School makes every effort to keep the school open until 5:30 p.m. Parents will be notified of any changes.
When registered for before or after-school childcare at Saint George School, a parent or authorized person should sign your child/children in and out each day. We will only release your child to the persons designated on your registration form. Please notify staff in writing of a necessary change. Staff will ask for ID, (photo driver’s license) if needed. If your child has an after-school activity or practice to attend and will need to leave Extended Care, he or she cannot be released without written permission from the parent. Please advise us if your child has allergies, especially if they have food allergies. In the case of food allergies, we will monitor what your child eats for after-school snack time. You are encouraged to send alternate snacks if your child’s allergy is serious. The teacher will administer medication but only if parents fill out a medication form and the medication is in the original container.
