Before & After Care Program

There will be significant changes to our Morning and After Care Program for the 2018 -2019 year.  Please read this document carefully.

Our program will now follow the Department of Human Services regulations for operating a child care facility. This regulation provides the rules regarding operation of a child day care center. A child day care center must have a certificate of compliance (license) from DHS in to order to operate. https://www.pacode.com/secure/data/055/chapter3270/chap3270toc.html

The Before Care & After Care Programs at Holy Trinity Catholic School were created with working parents in mind.  For a small hourly fee, parents can rest assured that their child(ren) are in a safe and nourishing environment outside of the normal school hours. Regular hours of operation for After Care are 3:00pm – 6:00pm.  This year there will be a limited number of spots available, so you must email two weeks in advance. If you register and do not use the service you will be billed so be sure to go to the website to delete your spot.  Parents using the program on a regular basis will have 1st priority.
