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 SchedulingKids Club is scheduled through a monthly jot form that is sent out one week prior to the start of that month.
To schedule your child for a day at XCare (K-8) during the school year please use this sign-up genius. If a particular day is full, then you can email Vickie.
For Summer 2023, available for OLL registered Kindergarten - Eighth grade students, you can use this sign-up genius. Please take the time to read the attached document on the sign-up to get all the information. Prices for Summer Camp follow the same school time Fee 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.
