Coverage Times and Availability

 

Kindergarten through Grade 8

Before-Care is offered from 7:00 – 8:15 a.m. for a nominal fee and After-Care from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. This program is offered in our Cafeteria and on our Playground (weather permitting).
 

Pre-K (3 and 4 years of age)

Before-Care begins at 7:45 a.m. Before-Care and After-Care for Pre-K is held in the Pre-K classroom.

These programs serve the students on the full days that school is in session.  After-Care services are not available on half-days.

Extended care is available on a prearranged basis as well as in emergency situations.  

Please be sure to notify your child’s teacher in advance when using the After-Care Program. If After-Care is needed on a last-minute basis please call the school before 2:30 p.m. and notify the office. 

Cost

 

Charges for Before-Care are tiered depending on drop off time.  Payments are due daily.

Charges for After-Care are $8.00 per hour for students in Pre-K – Grade 8.  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.

Policy

 

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 be 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 discontinuation from the program.

Snacks and Activities

 

Snacks of crackers, cookies, juice and milk are served. Students will be going out daily so appropriate clothing should be provided. There is always study time given for students to work on their homework. It is up to each student to use this time appropriately.
