Available before and after regular school hours, the Extended Day Program provides professional care, supervision, and recreation and enrichment activities for your child. This program serves the working parent who desires both Catholic school education and supplementary day care in a Christian environment. The program is open only to students currently enrolled at St. Mary School.

Our program allows children to experience a rich diversity of activities planned to complement the philosophy and value system of our school and its families. Art and craft projects, indoor and outdoor recreation, snack time, and rest periods are integrated. Additionally, time is set aside for homework, with some adult assistance and resource materials available.
