St. Patrick School’s Enriching & Educational Child Care



The St. Patrick C.A.R.E.S. (Children are Receiving Extended Services) program strives to provide a safe and caring environment, which complements the philosophy and value systems of the school and family.

Daily activities include quiet homework time, outside play, inside games and crafts. We provide individual attention, security, consistency and fair and caring treatment to all the children in attendance.

In the event of early dismissal due to inclement weather or a school emergency, C.A.R.E.S. will remain open for 2 hours as a courtesy to parents who work outside the area. (A registration form must be on file for this service). The safety of our staff is as important as the safety of our students.

It is important for parents to be aware of the Archdiocesan mandate that the C.A.R.E.S. program be financially self-sustaining in order to remain in operation. Parent fees are the only source of revenue for salaries, utilities and program costs. Registration forms must be completed and submitted to the St. Patrick School office prior to the opening of school.

Effective for 2020-2021: In order to keep the cost of C.A.R.E.S. to remain the same, we ask that parents supply a snack for your child/children.

Fee per day: One Child – $20.00

Two Children- $32.00

Three or more children- $35.00

LATE FEE: $10.00 fee will be charged, if picked up after 6:10 pm. WHEN THERE IS A HALF-DAY OF SCHOOL, FEES ARE DOUBLED. CARES IS OPEN 11:30 AM UNTIL 6:00PM.

The C.A.R.E.S. program will be available to you effective Monday, August 31 for Before School Care and for the Early Dismissal Days, 11:45 am until 6pm. We will continue to provide C.A.R.E.S from 2:40 pm until 6:00pm every day that school is in session. Billing statements from the Parish Office will be provided to parents every two weeks for morning and/or afternoon C.A.R.E.S.

Please make checks payable to St. Patrick C.A.R.E.S. and leave payment with Mrs. Jackson or the School Main Office. Note C.A.R.E.S on envelope. ***If you have an outstanding balance from last year, your child may not attend CARES until that balance is paid.
