Puma Pals - Before and After Care

Queen of Peace offers parents an extended care program for students who are enrolled in either half-day or full-day programs.  Extended care provides a safe, supervised environment that includes indoor and outdoor play, quiet study time, and a variety of fun classroom games and activities.  Parents may drop-off their child as early as 7:15 AM and pick up as late as 6:00 PM when school is in session.  Registration in the program is required prior to program usage.

Queen of Peace Catholic School also offers childcare during mornings in which the start of the day is delayed due to bad weather.  Watch local TV and radio programs for complete information.
