Before/Aftercare

Our Lady of Wisdom offers a safe, nurturing environment for your child both before and after school hours.  Children may participate in activities and games, watch an age-appropriate movie, or get a jump-start on a homework assignment.

Before Care Hours:  7:00 am until the start of the school day.
The Before-Care program runs on mornings when parents have given advanced notice to the school.  Pre-payment for before-care is required. Children enter the before-care program through the silver Pre-K door (opposite the rectory).

After Care Hours:
End of the school day until 6:00 pm

The After-Care program will be held downstairs in the Pre-K classroom between the end of the school day and 6:00 PM.  Students should bring a healthy snack that is in accordance with our food allergy policy and a drink if staying for After-Care.  When picking from After-Care, persons are asked to come to the silver side door, opposite the rectory, and you will be required to sign your child/children out.  Please bring appropriate photo ID.

In the event of a delayed opening due to inclement weather or some other circumstance, before-care will be cancelled.  In the event of an emergency closing for any reason, after-care will be cancelled.
