St. Paul Latchkey Childcare

St. Paul Latchkey is an after school program for St. Paul school students from Preschool through Eighth grade.  The program currently had approximately 100+ children enrolled in the 2015-2016 school year.  The Latchkey daily schedule begins as school ends at 2:35 p.m. and closes at 6:00 p.m. daily.  There are currently 6 classrooms divided age appropriately with 6 regular part time teachers and 2 substitute teachers that help on a weekly basis with homework and fun days that are planned throughout the month. A monthly calendar is available for daily activities, snacks, and planned field trips. A typical Latchkey day includes Snack, Gym or Outside playtime, Homework time, Computer time, and games or crafts to complete the day. Regular school rules and policies are followed during the Latchkey hours. If you have any additional questions or would like to enroll in the Latchkey Program at St. Paul School, please contact our Latchkey Director, Michele Kennedy, at mmezkennedy@gmail.com or call 330-494-0223 ext. 323.


Limited spots are available for the 2016-2017 school year. If you are interested in enrolling or re-enrolling, please contact Michele Kennedy as soon as possible.


Questions that you may have:

1. Does my child(ren) need to be registered to attend?


Yes, whether you choose to send your child(ren) on a "Drop In" basis for emergencies or full time, you must register your child(ren) at least 24 hours before your child(ren) attends. If you think you might use Latchkey sometime throughout the year, then please register at the beginning of the school year to be prepared. School closes at 3:00 p.m. daily, children can not be left in the office after that time.


2. If my child is registered for "Drop In", what is "Drop In" and how much notice do I need to give for my child to attend?

Your child(ren) can attend any time you need care once they are registered. Your child will remain on "Drop In" status throughout the school year and you can always change your scheduled Latchkey time as your schedules change.


3. Will my child(ren) complete homework at Latchkey?

Yes, we will provide time and assistance for your child to complete their homework while at Latchkey. Children may work on homework at any time. We do not "make" them work on homework, but we do "suggest" they get it done to have more family fun time at home. Please remember that reviewing homework with your child or reading with them at home is equally important.

4. What is the Daily Rate or Hourly Rate?

There is no Hourly Rate anymore. If your child attends only one day per week the charge is $20 per child.

5. Can my child come to Latchkey after Drama Club, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Choir Practice, Homework Club, etc?

Yes, but they must be registered to be able to attend. It is best to have your child registered at the beginning of the school year to make sure you have somewhere for them to go if you can't be there to pick your child up on time. They come to Latchkey and you would only pay for the time they attend Latchkey. Once your child is registered, a spot remains for them each day school is in session.

6. Can my child attend Latchkey on Snow Days?

No, We are not open if school is not open. If the school is closed for any reason then Latchkey and the Preschool is closed as well. We suggest trying the YMCA Childcare Center for Snow Days and Holidays.
