Extended Care

St James offers extended care both before and after school, to accommodate busy families, and to provide more play time for the children.

Morning Play

Early drop off is available  Monday-Friday from 8:00am-9:00am on a drop in basis for $10.00.

Parents will sign in their children in the “Morning Play” sign up book located just outside the school’s main entrance.  Children will be supervised by our faculty in the sandbox area.  Children will be signed out and walked to class from Morning Play by their classroom teacher aide.

Please note there will be no Morning Play on monthly faculty meeting days; see calendar for dates.

Picnic After School

After school care is available Monday-Friday from 12:00pm-3:00pm on a drop in basis for $10.00/hour. Picnic is billed in quarter hour increments.

Children bring their own lunches and are supervised by teachers and aides.  Parents are billed for Picnic at the end of each month based on the amount of time their child stayed.  If you would like your child to stay for Picnic, please sign in using the “Picnic Book” which is located just outside the office door.  Put your child’s lunch in the large coolers that are in the same location.

The classroom aide will walk the children from their classroom to Picnic and sign them in for Picnic.  Parents sign-out the children when they come to pick them up from Picnic.

Picnic day ends at 3:00 p.m..  There is a charge of $1.00 per minute if parents arrive after 3:00 p.m.  Thank you for arriving on time at the end of Picnic.

When you have an emergency and must arrive late, you must call the office to let us know.  We will sign-in your child to Picnic so that she/he can be safely supervised by the teachers who are working during Picnic.  Regular charges for Picnic apply when parents are late.
