Saint George School offers before and 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 7-11am and after school childcare from 3-5:30 pm. If school is cancelled, the after-school childcare will be cancelled. Although if an early dismissal is called due to inclement weather, the after-school childcare will still remain open until 5:30pm and in case of a 2 hour delay, the before-school childcare will still open at 7am. Before or after-school childcare is not available on vacation or teacher in-service days.
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 practice 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 case of food allergies, we will monitor what your child eats. 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.
