Before & After Care


Mercymount offers Before-School Care from 7:45 – 8:15 a.m. for a nominal fee and After-School Care from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. for all students.   It serves the children on the full days that school is in session.  There is no After-Care service on half-days.

Extended care is available on a prearranged basis as well as in emergency situations.  *Please notify your child’s teacher when using the After-School Program…or call the school number before 2:30 if needed on a last-minute basis.

It is expected that parents do not abuse the 6:00 p.m. deadline. As the staff members are only employed until 6:00 p.m., there will b a late charge if children are picked up after that time.  Late charges are $6.00 for every 15 minute delay. Continued disregard of this time limit will result in termination from the program.

Snacks of crackers, cookies, juice and milk are served. Children will be going out daily so appropriate clothing should be provided. There is always study time given for children to work on their homework. It is up to each child to use this time appropriately.  After Care for students in Preschool and Pre-K is held in the Preschool classroom.

To reach the After-Care program after 3:00, call 401-333-5919 Ext 17. Please do not leave messages on the office phones after 3:00 p.m.

Charges for Before-Care are currently $2.00 per student for any part of the 30 minutes and payments are due daily.

Charges for After-Care are $6.00 per hour for students in Pre-K – Grade 8.  (Preschool tuition includes the cost of before and after care.)  Payments are due weekly. Checks should be made out to Mercymount. If payment is overdue by the end of each week, those children will not be allowed in After-Care until the balance is paid.
