Our Extended Day Program provides a safe and pleasant facility for the continued care of students before and after the regular school day. The program maintains the high standards of care set by Nativity Catholic
School. Students have the opportunity for socializing, playing, completing homework, doing arts and crafts, and enjoying sports and activities based on age level and interests.
Operating hours are from 6:00 a.m. until 7:30 a.m. (before school), and 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. (after school), on most school days. Extended day also operates from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. for PreK3 students. Extended Day is open on most abbreviated school days. Students may come directly to Extended Day at dismissal or arrive after extracurricular activities. Extended Day closings are posted on the school calendar.
Students arriving before 7:30 a.m. must be accompanied by a parent and are to report to the Extended Day Program and will be assessed for this service.
Students not picked up promptly from school or after school activities will be escorted to Extended Day and will be assessed for this service.
