Child Care Center

Your child is welcome here!

Our Child Care Center serves families who need a fun, safe, structured environment for their children, ages 3 to 14, before, during, and after school. The child care room provides children a place for imagination and discovery. The gym and playground are also utilized. 

We provide an atmosphere where children are encouraged to grow socially, creatively, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually and physically. Activities include strategic card and board games, literature exposure, team challenges, outdoor games, arts and crafts, homework assistance, and free play.

Contact us if you have any questions or want to learn more about our program.

Please submit completed forms and the yearly snack fee (checks made payable to St. Stephen School) to the school office. Students will not be able to begin care until forms are submitted AND approved.


Unfortunately, we are not able to function as a drop off center. We would appreciate a bi-weekly schedule of when you need days. If you end up needing extra days, check with the director. If there is space available, we will be glad to accommodate you. Because your child’s place is being reserved and aides hired accordingly, refunds or credits cannot be given when your child is absent due to illness, change of schedule, etc.
