Why St. Paul’s Guardian Angel Extended Care?

It is no secret that the family unit, and the needs of the family units have changed dramatically over the years. Because of these changes and pressures, parents often find it difficult to provide an environment in which their children can grow and develop to the best of their potential. They often look to the church for their changing needs. Through the church, God continues to demonstrate His love for all families.

All of us are “in His hands” as we use our Early Childhood Program as a vehicle to carry out the Great commission to “make disciples of all nations.” Our intent is to provide a warm and loving, Christ-centered environment with planned activities appropriate to young children and their developmental stages.

Who can enroll?

At this time, St. Paul Guardian Angel Extended Care enrollment is open to all members of St. Paul Lutheran Church and non-member families with students attending St. Paul Lutheran School.

Ages 3 years through 8th grade are served by Extended Care. All three-year-old children must be potty-trained and out of diapers before enrolling at the center. Before and after school care is available for school-aged children.

To enroll, families should contact the Director of Extended Care to pick up registration materials. Enrollment forms, which include emergency cards, a parental agreement, schedules, and a registration fee, are due prior to your child’s first day of attendance. Immunization cards must be on file with the school or Extended Care Director.
