Before & After Care



Assumption Academy provides Before and After Care for students in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten. Our philosophy is to provide a place where the children will receive quality care in a safe, well-maintained and pleasant environment.


Before Care is provided for those students whose parents need an early start (opens at 6:45 am) and is a quiet time for children to get ready for their school day. The students will be able to eat a breakfast item (from home), to play quietly or to watch a video in the Before care program. After Care includes time for snack, structured activities, homework assignments, and indoor or outdoor playtime.


Before Care is held in our Art/Music classroom and children are escorted from Before Care to the cafeteria when it is time for their teachers to bring them to their classrooms. After Care begins at 3:00 pm in the cafeteria, and students are escorted there by their classroom teacher or aide. Aftercare concludes at 6:00 pm.


Before and After Care is staffed with teachers from the Academy and other long-time approved caregivers who meet the necessary standards. A child can only be released to a parent or to a person authorized, in writing, by a parent. Authorized individuals must show identification to pick-up a child.


At Assumption Academy, we strive to create a warm, secure and joyful environment where children will continue learning respect for all of God’s creation.
