Before and After School Care


This program is an additional school service for working parents which provides professional care, supervision, recreation, and enrichment activities for children enrolled in St. Barnabas School in full day PreSchool through sixth grade.  Morning PreSchool students may use Before Care.


This supplementary childcare program is open from 6:30-7:45 a.m. and 3:00-6:00 p.m. each school day beginning with the first full day of school and ending with the last full day of school.  After School Care will be available on full school days only; however, it will also be available on days where there is a 1:30 dismissal for Staff Development, which is usually one Thursday per month.


There is Gym time for an hour after school (weather permitting children will be taken outside). A snack is then provided followed by time for homework.  Those children who have finished their homework or do not do homework with the After Care staff, then have time for "play" or to express their talent in drawing, coloring or building with Legos.  A large assortment of board games are also offered.


The program is self-supporting and relies solely on timely payment of fees which are as follows:

  • Mornings: $25 per child registration fee for mornings
  • Afternoons: $40 for one child, $60 for two or more children registration fee
  • Hourly Fees: $6.40 for one child, $3.40 for each additional sibling

Annual registration fees are non-refundable and cannot be used as a credit towards hours used.  See Parent-Student Handbook for additional details on the fee schedule.
