St. Mary’s Extended Child Care Program (ECC) gives quality care that meets the developmental needs of children. The atmosphere is stable, secure, and well organized. The environment provides an atmosphere of safety and security in which children may grow. Trained staff seek to provide quality care, supervision, and activities to meet the needs of the various age groups of children. Space is available for quiet study; supervised play indoors and/or outdoors; movies and/or videos (on occasion), or simply wholesome conversation. Children are provided some freedom of motion and a sense of privacy.
We believe that children can have fun and enjoy themselves in an atmosphere of trusting love and consideration for others. To that end, the staff encourages each child to be compassionate, tolerant, mutually respectful, loving and forgiving. Each child is expected to respect the rights, property and good name of others. Each child is taught to be courteous and well-mannered. Good behavior and cooperation are a must.
