Our BSP opens at 7:10 AM when school is in session. There is no BSP if there is a weather delay or if school is canceled. Each morning you will be greeted by the staff member, who will have small art projects or games ready. The children play and visit with one another until they are brought safely to their respective classes by the caregiver. The cost per child is $3.00 daily, billed at the end of the each month.
Our After School Program (ASP) begins at 2:30 with the dismissal bell and ends at 5:30 pm We have a director and staff of 12 caregivers who attend to the needs of OLA children from prek-8th grade. The director walks the children from school to the early learning center at school dismissal.
The program begins with attendance, followed by homework, snack, and then play, outdoors if weather permits or indoor games or a movie if it is rainy or cold.
The fee for ASP is $6.00 per hour per child; and by the ½ hour after the first hour. This is billed monthly and is due when the bill is received. All bills should be paid by the end of the month. Any unpaid bills will result in a $10 late fee added to your unpaid bill. I depend on prompt payment of all bills to guarantee our cash flow to pay our staff, buy snacks, and anything else the program requires. A $20.00 fee is charged for any returned checks for insufficient funds.
Both ASP and BSP follow the OLA handbook concerning discipline. Our dress code ,however, is relaxed. Children may bring a change of clothes for play. All clothing should have your child’s name clearly written. Boots, snow pants, hats and scarves are necessary for full enjoyment of our New England winters. (Great hot chocolate days!)
OLA is proud to provide this before and after school care for your child in a loving, safe, and nurturing environment.
Fill out the registration form if you should need to use the program at any time during the year whether regularly or occasionally. Return the form on the 1st day of school or before. This is very important should we need to reach you at any time. If also allows us to plan for the number of children (snacks, space, staff etc). For any further questions, please contact Mrs. Mary Walczak at the school telephone number (508-752-5609).
