Extended Care Punch Card Procedures*

The punch card system is intended to assist families who may need an extended day for their child on an irregular basis. 

To use the system a family must purchase a card with a block of 5 or 10 “punches” on it. The extended care program hours are 7:00am-8:20am and 2:30pm-6:00pm**.

The prices are as follows:

5 punches= $150.00

10 punches= $275.00 

 The punch card can be used for the following:

  • For Early Morning Care from 7:00 am – 8:20 am. 
  • To extend a half-day to a full day (12:30 pm pick-up to 2:30 pm pick-up).
  • To extend a half-day to a full day plus extended care (12:30 pm up to 6:00 pm** pick-up) NOTE: THIS WOULD COUNT AS TWO PUNCHES.
  • To extend a full day to extended care (through 6:00 pm)
  • Payment is due in full upon purchase of the card; there is no tuition assistance available for this service.
  • Each day that a child uses the extended day program will serve as 1 “punch” and the date of use will be recorded on the back of the card; in addition, the Front Desk will keep a log of all “punch card” users every day. Again, please note, if you are using the punch card to extend a half-day to a full day plus extended care, this would count as two punches.
  • The card is for use by one family only and not transferable. Each child who stays will use 1 punch (ie, if two children stay from one family it is 2 punches).
  • The card is good for the entire school year, but expires on the last full day of school.          
  • Please call the Front Desk as early as possible to inform them that you will be using extended day. If you have advance notice of dates, please let us know.
  • Children who are enrolled in after school enrichment programs may use the punch to stay after the 3:30 pm dismissal of the enrichment.

* For the 2021-2022 school year we hope to offer Punch Cards in October.            

** For the 2021-2022 school year, extended care will end at 6:00 pm.
