K-6 After School Childcare

After School ChildcareThe K-6 After School Childcare program at St. Rita School was created out of an expressed need for convenient, quality and affordable child care for our K-6 students and their families. 

K-6 After School Childcare is provided from 2:45 - 6 pm daily. On days when school dismisses early, After Care will be provided from the early dismissal time and will run until 6pm.

K-6 After School Childcare is located in the Primary School cafeteria -- an ideal location as it is comfortable and familiar to the students, spacious enough to allow freedom of movement, and allows enough table space to support the students in completing their daily homework assignments. In addition, a “Quiet” classroom is provided from 3pm to 4pm for students wishing to complete homework without distraction.

Weather permitting, the children will spend time outside to unwind and play. Healthy snacks are provided, as well as, crafts and activities for all After School Childcare students. Adult instructors are certified in First Aid and CPR.

After School Childcare is available to Cherub Choir members with supervised transport to practice each Monday from 2:45-3:45 pm.

A special rate of $5 is due at the beginning of the week if Monday will be the ONLY day that your child will require After School Childcare.

Each Monday that your child attends Cherub Choir/After School Childcare, you must send a note to your child’s homeroom teacher along with your payment. Checks are to made payable to St. Rita School and sent to the attention of Mrs. Rosanne Stark, c/o Primary School Office.

An After School Childcare Registration Form is available in the Main Office or by clicking here. Please be sure to check the “Cherub Choir Member’ box. By completing the registration form, you are also giving permission to the Choir Directors to pick up your child(ren) from After School Childcare and walk them across the parking lot to St. Rita Church for choir rehearsals. Parents are then responsible for picking up their children at 3:45 in the church following choir rehearsal. If your child needs to return to After School Childcare, then you will be charged the full childcare fee of $10 for that Monday.
