Unsupervised children are not allowed on the school grounds before 7:30 A.M. or after regular school dismissal. St. Thomas More Preschool offers several options for before and after school care.
Registration/Tuition: Registration is $40.00 per child. Tuition is debited on the 10th of each month.
Morning Only: 6:45 - 7:30 a.m. in the preschool building. The fee for Mornings Only is $35.00 per month. Breakfast may be purchased for a fee of 75c per day. Breakfast may not be purchased daily. A breakfast card must be purchased for $7.50 (ten breakfasts) or $15.00 (twenty breakfasts) at the front desk. Breakfast is NOT served after 7:30 a.m.
Full-Time: 2:30 - 6:00 p.m. This option includes morning care as well. The children will be located in the STM Preschool building. Activities will include snacks, outdoor play, games, movies, and free play. Tuition is $125.00 per month (10 months August - May).
Holidays: We offer holiday care on most school holidays with only a few exceptions, (Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day/following Friday, Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve & New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, Mardi Gras Monday & Tuesday, Good Friday and Easter Monday and Memorial Day) at $22.00 per day. Advance registration is required.
For the safety of your children, please DO NOT drop your child off before 6:45 a.m. The morning staff needs that time to prepare and set-up extended care. The first couple of weeks can be a difficult transition time for the children. We ask that you walk in with your kindergarten and first graders so that the staff, parents and children can get acquainted.
You may drive in the front entrance of the Preschool building in the morning and afternoon. Please be considerate of other parents and do not block other cars in the driveway. If you need to go inside with your child, please pull to the end of the driveway or park on the side street.
The Extended Care staff will line up the children at 7:30 a.m. to walk them to their classrooms for 7:45 a.m. Parents arriving after 7:30 a.m. must drop off their children through the school carpool line.
At 2:30 p.m. the Extended Care staff will go and pick up your kindergartners and first graders from their class and bring them to extended care. All children will be dismissed from the office of the Preschool. After you have signed your child out a counselor will be notified. Your child will either be dismissed from the building or the school playground from an Extended Care counselor.
