Please keep for your records

The St. Thomas the Apostle School BeforeCare and AfterCare Programs provide a safe, loving, and challenging environment for the children. These services are provided by St. Thomas the Apostle School certified teachers and/or other staff members.

BeforeCare begins at 7:00 a.m. Parents are required to drop the children off to a St. Thomas the Apostle staff member. Drop off without parental supervision may result in exclusion from the program.

AfterCare begins after school and ends promptly at 6:00 p.m. (late fees are enforced). The children may complete their homework, have a nutritious snack, and enjoy playtime. On special days we have pizza and a movie! AfterCare is provided on 12:15 dismissal days as well except those that precede a long weekend or vacation break.

BeforeCare & AfterCare can be used on a daily basis, on specific days, or on an as-need or
emergency basis. There is no need to schedule ahead as long as your emergency information is on

BeforeCare & AfterCare Payments

All BeforeCare & AfterCare payments (weekly & daily) will be billed through Smart Tuition.
