Mission:
To create a structured program that is dedicated to the care, education and development of St. Brigid School students during their out-of-school-time hours. Emphasis will be placed on providing an atmosphere where children can work on academics, socialization and life skills. We will work to provide our families with a positive, safe and nurturing environment that will include snack, work on homework, option to learn new skills, as well as opportunities to make new friends and have fun.

Utilization/Schedule:
Before and after care will be provided to St. Brigid students daily throughout the school year. The only exceptions are when school is not in session and on those Fridays that are half days that fall before a school vacation week. You do not have to notify us in advance in order to use this service. If you know that your child will be utilizing the service on a particular day (especially the younger students), please notify your child’s teacher of this at drop off or send your child with a note. Remember, any student not picked up by 3:00 PM promptly will be taken to the after care room and a fee will be assessed. If you need to reach the before or after care Program, please contact their dedicated line of 756-5928.

Fees (per child):
Before Care Fee — $2.50 for students dropped off between 7:00 AM and 7:30 AM
After Care Fee — $5.00 Per Hour

Billing:
All students will be checked in upon arrival to the before or after care rooms. Parents need to sign their child or children out when picking up, indicating their departure. If a child or children are not picked up by 5:30 PM, then $1.00 per minute fee will be charged for after this time. Also, all after care billing will be done on the half hour. If a student is not signed out, the family will be charged for the full day. Billing for this program is sent home bi-weekly by email. Any questions should be directed to Melodye DeBeradinis, Bookkeeper, at 797-7026 Ext. 201.
