|In a Pinch|
In keeping with our mission to be “responsive to the needs of the families we serve,” St. Gabriel School opened an Extended Care facility in 1985. “EC” provides affordable care each school day in a safe, creative, family environment, beginning before school at 7:00a.m. and until 6:00p.m after school. More than 80% of St. Gabriel students are enrolled in the program.
Nutritious afternoon snacks are provided daily for all students. A variety of age appropriate activities are provided, such as creative arts, games, outdoor play. Parents may choose to have their children do homework at EC Monday through Thursday. An adult staff supervises and encourages completion of homework assignments. EC’s Junior High Service Program allows junior high students to earn service hours by helping with various tasks, including homework help, and reading to or playing with younger students.
Safety is of great importance to our program. All children arriving before school must be signed in by a parent/adult. Children are only released to individuals who parents have pre-authorized. For after school extracurricular activities, arrangements can be made for the coach/teacher/parent volunteer to pick up and/or return your child to EC.
Extended Care is open every school day with before school care beginning at 7:00 am and open after school until 6:00 pm.
