WELCOME to the ST. THOMAS MORE BEFORE/AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM - our first day of Early Birds and the After School Program for the new school year, 2016-17, is Tuesday, August 9.
We provide supervision based on a common sense approach to student care. Our mission is to provide a safe, caring environment before and after regular school hours, where respect for Christian values is evident and the well-being of the child is the main concern.
The STM Before/After School Program serves working families who desire both parochial school education and supplementary day care in a Christian environment. We accept children enrolled in the STM Preschool, Kindergarten, and grades 1 through 8. Our hours are 7:00 A.M. until 6:00 P.M. each school day unless the Day School dismisses before 12 noon. You will need to make other after school arrangements on any student holiday and before Noon dismissals — the STM Before/After School Program will not be in session on these days…only the Early Birds will be available.
The Before/After School Program program will begin on the first full day of Preschool-8th Grade. We offer two sessions daily. Our Early Birds is from 7:00 a.m. – 7:45 a.m. The After School Program is opened until 6 p.m. each school day. The Cost for Early Birds is $65.00 monthly and the cost for the After School Program is $210.00 monthly per child. If you are registered for the afternoon program you may send your child to the Early Birds for no extra charge.
Charges after 6:00 p.m. are $10.00 FOR THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES LATE and then $1.00 per minute late for each additional minute. We are unable to offer the Before/After School Program on a “Drop-In” basis. Every student who attends must be registered in advance and a full month’s tuition will be charged regardless of the number of days the student is in attendance or the time the student is picked up.
Before/After School Program Tuition is an additional charge to your Preschool and Day School Tuition. The school will provide separate tuition envelopes for Before/After School Program or you may pay online. If you have any questions concerning the Before/After School Program or if you need to register your child, please call Nina Coltharp at 713-729-9062.
Any Preschooler may use the Early Birds and After School Care program if you are registered. Only our Full Day Preschoolers may stay in the afternoons until 6:00 pm. Our Half Day Preschoolers leaving at 11:15 am would only be eligible for the Early Birds Program. You must drop off your child by 7:30 am if you are using the Early Birds program. If you register for the After School Care you may come to pick up your child any time before 6 pm – however, after 6 pm you will be charged a late fee…see the above note.
