The Blessed Sacrament Preschool Extended Care Program's goal in the afternoon is to have a fun safe relaxing place for your child to be after their morning preschool class.
Our afternoons consist of lunch, free play then a daily Lesson and story time. After that, it is time for our quiet time. The children rest from 1:00-2:15p.m. Quiet time consists of some napping, but not all. They don't have to sleep. but they do have to lie quietly so the others can nap. We do have quiet music playing for them to relax to.
We ask that all our little friends bring in their own sleep gear. That can consist of a sleeping bag or blanket. Most of our friends bring small pillows. Now, they can bring a small stuffed animal/special friend to sleep with. Some friends choose to leave those here and others take them home each time they stay.
After waking at 2:15, we get ready to go home and have Center Playtime. Dismissal is at 2:45 but you may pick up your child at anytime.
The Aftercare Program that starts at 2:45 is separate from the Extended Care. We take children that are staying up to the cafeteria at 2:50 to join the rest of the children staying for the Aftercare Program.
