Little Buds Kid Care Afterschool Program

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to the Aftercare Program at St. Bonaventure School.This year, St. Bonaventure School has decided to outsource the aftercare program to Little Buds Kid Care.The program will still be run by the same reliable St. Bonaventure staff members that you have trusted your children with in the past.

Field trips have been a great success these last few years, and we will continue to offer them again this year.Groups 3, 4 & 5 (grades 2 - 8) will have scheduled field trips on early release Fridays, there will be a few occasions where 1st grade will be included on the field trip. Scheduled field trip locations will be posted at pick-up the week prior to the field trip, we will let you know at that time what groups will be attending. All students (grades 1 - 8) must have a signed Field Trip Permission Form on file. In-house field trips will be arranged for groups not traveling to a field trip. You will find a blanket field trip form to be completed (for grades 1 - 8 only) and returned with your aftercare application found on the website. This will entitle your child to attend all aftercare field trips offered at that group level at no additional cost. Field trips are open only to students who are signed up for aftercare on a yearly basis.

The cost of the aftercare program is $185.00 per month and will automatically be billed on the 1st of each month beginning September 2015 through May 2016.

Families may use the aftercare program on a daily basis, for a charge of $15.00 per day. Charges for early dismissal days are $15.00 if child is picked up by 3:15pm, after 3:15 the charge will be $ 30.00 per day per child, plus the cost of the field trip if attending.Students may attend field trips on early release Friday's if space is available, all students must have a completed field trip consent form on file in the office prior to the day of the field trip.
