Extended Care

Objective

The Extended Care Program of St. Veronica Catholic School was established in January of 1986. It exists in order to provide high-quality, reasonably priced child care to school families in need of such service.

Philosophy

St. Veronica Catholic School’s Extended Care Program is an actual extension of this school community, and it shares the same philosophy and similar policies.

We strive to provide a safe, enjoyable environment in a pleasant atmosphere of mutual respect for everyone in attendance. We stress careful supervision and friendly interaction. We offer a variety of activities for the children’s choosing, in order to make the out-of-school hours here as homey as possible, within our limitations. In order to maintain such a program, specific rules of behavior are consistently enforced. Families are made aware of these upon enrollment, and the children are regularly reminded. In the rare event that a child cannot act accordingly and becomes disruptive, he/she will no longer be provided with our services. The parents/guardians must then find other child care arrangements.

The Extended Care Program opens at 6:45 a.m. and closes at 5:45 p.m. on all school days. In accordance with state regulations, our child care program may not operate during holidays, weekends, or vacation periods.

We strive to maintain the recommended ratio of fifteen children per staff member and expand according to our ever increasing enrollment. All staff must meet the State of California safety and eligibility requirements for on-site school-age children care programs.
