St. Mary School offers before and after school latchkey care to accommodate the needs of busy families. Named St. Mary Backpacks, the latchkey program is licensed by the State of Michigan Department of Social Services to provide supervision for children of full-time working parents. We are not licensed as a drop-off center. The program is designed to serve children in Full-Day Preschool through 8th Grade. At this time, half-day preschoolers are not admitted to the program.
Before-school supervision begins at 7:00 and after-school care begins at 3:00. The afternoon latchkey schedule includes time for snack, homework, and play.
