The primary purpose of St. Bernadette School is the development of the total child to a commitment toward his/her Christian and democratic responsibilities.
In meeting the concern for the spiritual development and enrichment of each child, every effort is made to foster a relationship with Christ through a basic knowledge of Sacred Scripture and Catholic doctrine.
We, at St. Bernadette School, believe that we must provide an atmosphere in which each child can grow as an individual. We also believe that each child must acquire the knowledge and skills to develop the attitudes that will enable each one to become a reliable citizen and a true Christian by giving witness in the parish, the Church, and society as a whole.
In such a Christian atmosphere, we, as educators, realizing that parents are the primary educators of their children, wish to share vital information and work together for the well being of each child in our school.
Based on our awareness of the unique qualities of each child, we at St. Bernadette School, aim to educate the child completely, recognizing and nurturing all aspects of development: spiritual, intellectual, personal, social, physical and cultural.
The Saint Bernadette Extended Day Program was created to provide valuable assistance to working families of St. Bernadette School. Our goal is to provide activities within a Catholic environment, complimentary to the philosophy and value system of our school.
Activities are designed to be developmentally appropriate and are based in part upon the child's own needs and interests. Although non-academic in nature, the curriculum offers a structured balance of play, creative activities and homework, all supervised by a qualified and caring staff.
The program is open to St. Bernadette school students only. Admission is on a space available basis. We also have some space for children to "drop in" occasionally. Registration for EDP occurs at the same time as school registration. There is a $25.00 application fee.
