Child's Play - Before and After School Care (formerly Sherpa Kids)
At St. Dominic School, we are proud to be partnering with Child's Play to provide quality “Before & After School” care for your children. The before care program begins at 7:00 am until 8:45 am. The after school care runs from 3:10 pm to 6:00 pm.
Students in the before school care are asked to enter through the front kindergarten door (the door to the right of the front, main entrance) and go straight to the classroom designated for the Child's Play program. Once the program is complete for the morning, students will be supervised as they walk outside and around to the back tarmac for morning supervision starting at 8:45am, with the exception of the Kindergarten students, who will wait outside with a supervisor at the kindergarten door.
We ask that children do not walk through the school to get to their classrooms to and from daycare, as there will be no supervision at that time in the building. This is to ensure safety. On inclement weather days, students will be permitted to remain inside at their designated boot rooms, just as the other students from the tarmac would. Supervisors would come inside for those instances.
For after school care, the students will be dismissed from their regular boot room doors by their homeroom teacher and asked to walk around the building to get to the Child's Play entrance. Again, this ensures that supervision of students is happening and is for the safety of all. We have supervisors on the back tarmac after school for 15 minutes every day after school. Please speak with your child about walking around the building and going straight to Child's Play. A Child's Play supervisor will be outside on the sidewalk to welcome students safely to their entrance each day.
Child's Play Kinder Care Program
We are now offering a Kinder Care program for our kindergarten families. At St. Dominic, we currently have one morning Kindergarten class. Parents of those children are welcome to register for after kindergarten care. Once registered, kindergarten students will go straight from their kindergarten program to the Kinder care program, which is located in the classroom right beside our kindergarten room. They will be met and picked up each day by a Child's Play supervisor to ensure safety. At the end of the day, parents can come through our Kindergarten entrance door (at the front of the building, to the right of the main entrance) to pick up their child.
