Star Care Overview

Welcome to Star Care 2017-2018,

Star Care is a Roman Catholic based program allowing for prayer, sharing and practicing our Catholic faith. We also offer diverse activities including intellectual and physical (we go outside or to the gym when it is available) stimulation.

We will be in the center rooms 1 & 2 again. (Enter the room through the brown door next to the gym.)

We give the children many opportunities to complete their homework. Please send pencils and paper to do their homework. Also, all children are to bring a reading book for quiet time at the end of the day.

SNACKS:  Morning children can bring their own snack or breakfast to eat, please make them healthy.  The afternoon children may bring a healthy snack that they can eat right after school.  Star Care serves snacks at 4:30 pm.

Thank you for your help and cooperation in keeping Star Care up and running smoothly.
