After School Child Care Program
St. John's School is thrilled to offer a safe and inviting after school care program to support our families. After school care is provided daily on school days, including on half-days. Students are given the opportunity to have a snack, to work on homework, and to have some fun with friends as they play and relax! Arts 'n crafts, story time, outdoor play (weather permitting) and games are some of the favorite activities offered at after school care.
