Extended Care - Before & After School Care
Our Lady of the Lake Parish School realizes that many families require additional care for their children throughout the school year. We are pleased to make such services available to families and students by offering two programs:
- Kids Club which is our after-school care (only) program for students in Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten
- Extended Care (XCare) which is our before- and after-school care program for students in Kindergarten through
8th Grade (7:00-8:15 am and after school until 6:00 pm).
In addition, Our Lady of the Lake provides full-day Extended Care on "no school" days, during Christmas and Spring Breaks, and over the Summer.
Our Kids Club space has been licensed as a Child Care facility through the Washington State Department of Child, Youth, and Families (DCYF) since April 2022. This designation ensures that our program meets the highest standards of child safety, health, and development.
Hours and SchedulingPlease fill out the Kids Club Intent Form and return it to the school office to indicate your student’s regular schedule.
It is very important that Kids Club and Extended Care have an accurate count of the number of students enrolled each day. In case of changes, please update your schedule as soon as possible.
