Extended Care Contract Information and Application

Visitation Extended Care is dedicated to the ministry of childcare. We recognize the preciousness of each individual child, and we strive to provide care within a Catholic environment. Planned activities complement the philosophy and value systems of the school and family.

We strive to give each individual child the love, respect, and attention he or she deserves in order to meet their needs on a daily basis. Within a nurturing environment, our goal is to provide a homelike atmosphere of love, peace, respect, and gentle discipline.

The Extended Care staff works with the parents as partners to ensure that the child reaches his or her potential physically, mentally, and spiritually.

What is an Extended Care Program?

Visitation Catholic STEM Academy offers before and after-school care for Pre-Kindergarten through eighth-grade students who are registered and attend Visitation Catholic STEM Academy. Each day it provides a safe, enjoyable atmosphere with a variety of activities such as outdoor play, homework time, indoor games and an afternoon snack.  Extended Care is an auxiliary program of the school and under the ultimate responsibility of the school principal.  Day-to-day management is the responsibility of the director. It is staffed by school personnel and serves ONLY the children enrolled at the school.

SIGN IN/OUT

In order to ensure student safety, we use a SIGN IN/OUT procedure.  The SIGN IN/OUT book is located just inside the door at the staff desk. In the afternoon, Extended Care Staff will sign-in the student from school.  At pick-up time, the student(s) will not be released without the full, legal signature of a parent/guardian, or an authorized person with written permission signed by a parent or an authorized person listed on the child’s registration papers and with valid picture identification.  Students are not allowed to sign in/out.  Remember to indicate the time when you sign out.
