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 is our after-school care program for students in our ECL Program. We offer two options: 3:00pm pick up and 6:00pm pick up.
- Extended Care (XCare) 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). Also open 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 contracted through jot form and billed monthly through quickbooks- (due the first day of care for the month). Must select the same days of the week via Jot form contract (may change the schedule at trimester break.)

Before the school year, you may sign a contract for what days of the week you will need after school care and if you need care till 3pm or 6pm. Your contract can be changed at the trimester. Your contracted monthly amount is due the first day of the month, a bill will come out the week before via Quickbooks.
Using Kids Club on a drop-in basis is fine if there are spots available. Please contact the school office to check if there is space. Drop in fee is $50 per day for 3pm pick up.
|Parents can schedule or update reservations through the sign-up genius.
Using Extended Care on a drop-in basis is fine, even on short notice (e.g., parent running late due to a meeting or traffic), if there are spots available. Please contact Vickie as soon as you know you will need care so she can check spots.
Students do not need to preregister for Extended Care to use this program, though the hourly rate is higher for non-registered students.
