Before & After School

St. Teresa of Calcutta Calmar location operates a before and after school program at the St. Aloysius school. This program starts at 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 a.m. until bus departure. Preschool will walk across the parking lot to preschool with a teacher. After school care starts at 3:30 with bus arrivals and operates until 6:00 p.m. The cost for this service is $3.50 per hour. We do follow the South Winneshiek school calendar with late starts and early dismissals. If there is a late start the before school program opens at 6:30 a.m.

Our extended care is flexible and can be utilized according to each family’s unique schedule. For example, some families may choose extended care for every day their child attends preschool, others may use it only one day or once in a while. Pick-up time is also flexible: some children stay until 5:00, others go home earlier.

Summer Program

St. Teresa of Calcutta Calmar location operates a summer program for children age 4 and older at the St. Aloysius school. The hours of service are 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. We ask parents once a month to bring snack for their class in line with the “Suggested Snack Calendar” to ensure a variety of healthy foods are served to your child while at school. Morning snack is at 9:00 a.m. and afternoon snack is at 3:00 p.m. Lunches are served at 12:00 p.m. and the cost is $2.50 per meal. All lunches meet the federal food program guidelines and are prepared at the school.

Summer program care starts the day after school is out and ends within the week before school starts so that teachers have time to get ready for the next school year. The cost for summer care is $3.50 per hour with no weekly minimum. Activities in the summer include, library story hour, swimming, visits to the park, structured morning activities in math, science, reading and art. The afternoon is more relaxed with outdoor activities. While there is a 20 minute quiet time there is no rest or naps.
