St Robert School Extended Care Program
St. Robert Extension Program provides before and after school care for regularly enrolled students. It is staffed by school personnel, serves only the children enrolled at the school and operates only on days when school is in session, beginning the first full day of school and ending on the last full day of school.
The Extended Care Program is part of the total school program. It is therefore under the supervision of the school Principal and its finances are cleared through the school's financial account. Extended Care Programs are to be set up so that all the expenses are covered by the income of the program. Fees are the sole support of the St. Robert Extension Program. It is not subsidized by the school or parish. The Director of the program and all other program personnel are to be hired by the principal.
Philosophy - Goals
The Extension Program provides professional care, supervision, recreation, and enrichment activities. It serves working families who desire both parochial school education and supplementary day care in a Christian environment for children enrolled at St. Robert School in grades kindergarten through eight.
This professionally operated program allows children to experience a diversity of activities planned to complement the philosophy and value systems of the school and family. Arts and craft projects, games, and recreation, rest for the younger children, and snack time are just a few of the program components. Additionally, there is time set aside for homework completion.
Within a large family environment, the program strives to provide individual attention, security, consistency, and fair treatment of children of working parents. The Extension Program is staffed by an experienced Director and devoted, committed aides. These people, employed on a full-time or part-time basis, work together to help each child grow in maturity and self-respect, as well as to maintain an atmosphere wherein respect and understanding for others is realized.
Registration forms and information can be found in the Extension Packet 2013-2014.
