Extended Day Program

General Information

The St. Christopher Extended Day Program provides before school and after school supervised child care for our school children in a loving and caring environment, while providing supervision, recreation and activities. Extended Day is available for students in grades preschool through eighth grade.

This professionally operated program allows children to experience activities within a Catholic environment. The children are offered games and recreation, craft projects, group work, homework time and other activities. Adult supervision is constantly present to maintain a safe, orderly environment.

For the definitive statement of Extend Day policy and regulations, please see the Extended Day/PowerHour 2014-15 Parent Handbook.

Extended Day Fees

The cost of Extended Day is $5.00 per hour per child for the first two children in the program, and then $2.00 per hour for the third and fourth child. Additionally, there is an annual registration fee per family, which is either $25 (before school extended-day only), $25 (after school extended-day only) or $50 (both before school and after school extended-day).

There is a $5.00 minimum per session. Hours will be totaled per days in terms of half hours, not combined at the end of the week. Each child will be billed separately.

Extended Day runs from 6:30am to 8:00am before school, and from 3:00pm to 6:00pm after school.

Emergency and Safety Information

With the child's safety in mind, it is important that the parent/guardian fill out an emergency card and adhere to the rules.

Parents/guardians cannot send persons whose signatures are not on the emergency card without proper authorization.

In case of a minor illness or accident, the staff will administer first aid. In cases of a serious problem, the staff will refer to the emergency card and follow the instructions given on the form. Those parents who wish their child not to be medically treated in any way should state so on the emergency form. Alternative instructions should be supplied. If the instructions on the emergency cannot be followed at the time of the emergency, the staff will act to the best of their knowledge for the welfare of the child.

No medication will be administered to any child unless a note from the doctor and parent is sent stating what, when and how much medication should be given to the child. If a child gets sick during the program the parent will have to make arrangements for their child to be picked up.
