Parent Comments:

“St. Joseph extended day is amazing. Our daughter loves attending and asks every week what days she gets to go. As a parent, it is reassuring knowing GiGi is safe and with good caregivers as well as always learning. Thank you Cinda and your team!” -Kindergarten parent

“Cinda and the staff care for our children as if they were their own. We both work full-time so it is a comfort to know our children are in good hands when we cannot be with them." -Shane & Jennifer Kathol

“Our son always looks forward to extended day. They have a variety of fun and interesting activities. It has given him an opportunity to meet children outside of his class/grade. Mrs. Hicks and her staff do a wonderful job.”  -Kindergarten parent

"This program is well-run. There are a variety of activities, kids get to meet students in other grades and classes, and its flexibility is family-friendly. The teachers are kind and caring. Cinda runs an excellent program." -Carrie Budd
