The extended daycare program is provided by the school to serve the students who need extended hours of supervision before and after the regular school day. It serves the families whose children are enrolled in St. Eugene’s School in kindergarten through the eighth grade. In a Christian setting; we seek to provide a positive after-school experience with recreation and enrichment activities to meet the needs of every student.
