Extended Care Program


The basic Catholic Christian philosophy that permeates the total St. Monica School Program continues to operate in the Extended Care program. This philosophy emphasizes the dignity and respect for all persons, for all of creation, and for the moral, social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of each child.

In addition to this overall philosophy, the Administration and Staff of the Extended Care Program will:

  1. Provide a caring and safe environment during after school hours for children who are enrolled in the Extended Care Program
  2. Provide activities that are enriching, structured, and promote a sense of responsible free choice
  3. Guide students to develop and improve their social skills by providing opportunities for:
    1. using one's own initiative
    2. practicing independence and self-direction
    3. associating constructively with peers
    4. observing supportive and challenging role models
    5. developing a sense of competence and a healthy self-image
