All St. Bartholomew School children are welcome into our Before and Aftercare programs any ​morning or afternoon. Our after care program is a drop in program.  You do not have to sign up ahead of time for your child to stay after school .   

In aftercare, homework is a priority.  After all the children have completed their homework, they are taken outside to play. Snack and juice are provided for all children; however, children may bring their own snack.

In the event that you are unexpectedly unable to pick your child up by 3:15 p.m., we will bring your child into aftercare for his or her safety and he or she may be picked up in the appropriate room.  A “Stuck in Traffic” fee will be billed to the family for each of these students.

If you have any questions, please contact the School office at 301-229-5586.

Children must be picked up by 6:00 p.m. and a parent/guardian must sign out each child.  Our program is staffed by our teachers, who have been working since 7:00 a.m., so we ask that you are prompt in picking up your child. In the event you are late (after 6:00 p.m.) you will be charged a late fee of $3.00 per minute for each child. The late fee will be added to your aftercare bill.

You will receive monthly bills at the end of each month, with the exception of June (pre-paid only). Bills are to be paid upon receipt. Report cards and transcripts will be withheld each quarter if aftercare payments are not up to date.  


We do not send each family a report of expenses paid for tax purposes so please keep track of your invoices for your records.
