Each family is responsible to have a plan in place for their children at the end of the school day. Guardian Catholic has no after school program or personnel to monitor children after dismissal at the end of the school day.
Parents are welcome to choose from some of the following providers who offer After School Care programs. Please be advised that each of these providers operate independently of Guardian Catholic School. Parents must make arrangements directly with the provider and inform the school of their plan for after school pick up. Some programs require fees. All business is done directly with the provider and not with the school. The school is providing this information for your convenience in securing care for your child after school dismissal.
Champions conveniently provides after school care right here on our campus from 3-6 pm each school day for PK3 through Grade 8. Fee schedules are available on the Champions website. This program operates independently of the school. Champions is an approved provider for School Readiness services. All families are encouraged to choose Champions as their after school care provider. Champions is the only site approved for Success By 6 students who attend Guardian Catholic. Parents whose children receive Success By 6 funding must apply to Champions because the expense is covered by SB6.
Site Director, Felicia Bosman, can be reached at 904-703-8379 to answer your questions about the program and assist with registration. When enrolling in Champions, there is a 48-hour processing window before your child can begin services. Print and sign your enrollment form and bring it to Ms. Bosman on or before your child’s first day at Champions.
