Mount Alvernia Academy has a comprehensive Extended Day and Full-Day Childcare programs. It operates daily throughout the school year, during February and April vacations, the weeks after school ends and the week before school begins, as well as on half days and parent/teacher conference days.
The comprehensive, coordinated Extended Day Program provides a wide range of activities, including academic support as well as enrichment programs for the students. Mount Alvernia Academy's Extended Day Program operates from 2:40 p.m. until 5:45 p.m. each day in the Main School building. It is open every day that Mount Alvernia is in session. On half days, the program runs from 12:00 p.m. until 5:45 p.m.
A general after-school session will include arts and crafts, sports, homework time, outdoor play, and a snack. The Extended Day Program is committed to providing a creative alternative for Mount Alvernia families for after-school care.
The program is committed to the development of the whole child---intellectually, socially, emotionally, creatively, and physically.
After a nutritious snack, children will be given ample time for indoor and outdoor free play. Individual and small group activities such as arts and crafts, games, and team sports will be offered. Children will also be given the opportunity to do homework. Activities are intended to meet the child's need for recreation, cultural enrichment, understanding diversity, and to allow for individual choice. Special events and holiday celebrations are also included in this program.
Full-day childcare is offered on an as-needed basis for all Mount Alvernia Academy families. The program is available the week before school begins, the week after school ends, February and April vacations, and other non-school days throughout the year. This program presents a wonderful alternative for our families and their children for childcare during vacations and non-school days.
