About Saint Agatha Childcare

Childcare Programs

Before and After School Care (Grades K-8)

We provide a welcoming, secure atmosphere for your children before and after their regular school hours. We offer a variety of educational and enrichment activities to help devleop social skills, self esteem, artistic skills and physical fitness.

In addition, during the after school care program, a dedicated homework time for students in grades 1-8 is planned Monday through Thursday.

Club 58 (Grades 5-8)

Club 58 is available for older students as a transition between school, home and extra-curricular activities. Students check in at 3:00 with a staff member in the Club 58 room. There are opportunities to socialize with students their own age, as well as receive help with homework assignments. This special age requires a program to balance the freedom they are earning with supervision from our qualified staff.

Summer Program

Saint Agatha offers an exceptional summer childcare option for students enrolled in the childcare program (students entering grades 1-8). The program begins one week after the end of school (June), and continues for eight (8) weeks.

During summer camp, students enjoy field trips, swimming, sports, arts and crafts, and visits to the Upper Arlington Public Library. The summer camp is staffed by highly qualified childcare staff.

Enrollment is open to Saint Agatha School and Childcare students entering grades 1-8. Non-Saint Agatha families are welcome if space allows.
