Kids Care is St. John's Catholic School Before/After School Program
St. John the Baptist Catholic School offers child care for students kindergarten through eighth grade in the before and after school program (Kids Care) throughout the school year. Kids Care also hosts release days, which is a childcare option for non-school days, such as MEA, workshops, Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. Kids Care is closed all major holidays. A list of release days will be posted once registration information is prepared for the 2021–2022 school year.
Kids Care provides flexibility for parents and their children’s busy schedule. Parents have the option to utilize before or after school care, or both. The program allows students to be recreational, educational, and explore their interests to serve each child’s individual needs. Each student is offered choices for creative, physical, and social growth through activities in art, science, sports, games, and quiet time.
The morning program is from 6:45 AM to 9AM. Students start their day exploring their interests, including arts and crafts, toys, and games. Your children will have the opportunity to have a morning snack before 8:20AM. While weather permits, we will spend the rest of our morning outside and come together for a quick prayer before heading off to school. Kindergartners will be escorted to their classrooms at 9AM until they are confident in finding their rooms.
The afternoon program begins at the end of the school day at 3:40PM until 6PM. We begin our afternoon with announcements, prayer, and a snack. Students have the opportunity to complete their homework with assistance of staff. Afternoon activities include gym, art, free choice, and outdoor play.
Currently, we will continue with our COVID procedures into the next school year. As regulations change, we will adjust our procedures accordingly. Children must wear their masks each and every day and their temperatures will be taken every morning. Parents will not be permitted into the building as of now. When dropping off and picking up your children, please call or text the Kids Care cell phone 952-917-9015 upon arrival. A member of our staff will meet you and your child at door #3.
