Educare (Before and After School Care)

Educare Philosophy

As an extension of Cardinal Hickey Academy, the Educare Program maintains the same high standards for our children. It is our intention to reinforce the values and priorities taught in the school and by Catholic Church traditions while building self-esteem and increasing students' awareness of the dignity inherent to us all. Structured and safely supervised, we provide daily: food, activities, play and homework time. We offer a warm and loving environment where students may grow, have fun, and continue to learn with Christ as the foundation.

Program Description

Morning Educare is offered from 7 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. Registrants must arrive groomed and in proper school uniform. Breakfast is provided before 7:30 am. Mornings are a time for mental preparation, homework review, quiet play and reading. Available to students K-8th grade only. Afternoon educare is from 3:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. Registrants will assemble in a designated area of the gymnasium at dismissal. Students are signed in. Students will be provided a snack, have recess time, time for homework, and if time allows, other activities. Preschoolers have their own area during our After-school Program where they enjoy a snack and playtime in a nurturing and safe environment all their own.
