Before & After-School Care

A program created to assist parents who work and need the extra care for their children before and after school and is run by certified teachers at the Word of Life faculty; in the after care program, students get homework help, a snack and drink, and physical activity through playing in both the gym and on the playground.

Available every school day including early dismissal days (with the exception of the first and last day of school)

Before Care is from 7 -7:45 a.m. and After Care is from 3:15 – 6 p.m.

Pre-K Students at the Timothy Campus
K-8 Students at the Word of Life Campus
*St Lucas offers before and after care through their Early Childhood Center program. Contact St. Lucas at (314) 351-2628.

Before Care – $5/day
After Care – $5/day if picked up by 4 p.m.; $9/day if picked up between 4:01 – 5 p.m.; $13/day if picked up between 5:01 – 6 p.m.


I am interested. What do I do now? Fill out the registration form and return it to the school office.

I may never use the before and after care program or I may only need before and after care once in a while. Should I still fill out the form? Yes, so that the before and after care teachers have it on file for the rare occasion your child may attend.

What if my work schedule changes that week? That is not a problem! You can use before and after care as needed. In fact, there may even be a random day where something comes up at work last minute. Simply call the school office to let us know.

How does paying for before and aftercare work? Simply pay through our school portal, Sycamore, for all before and aftercare fees.

Where is before and aftercare? At the Timothy campus both are held in the classroom between the two pre-k classrooms. At the K-8 campus, both are held in the classrooms on the Jamieson side of the building. There is a doorbell at the door on the corner of Jamieson and Eichelberger that is strictly used for before and after care.
