Extended Day Care (EDC)

St. Theresa Catholic School’s Extended Day program is an after-school care program licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia and approved by the Office of Education in the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. It provides high-quality childcare in a loving, safe, and Christian environment. The program is managed by a director or co-directors, and it is supported by dedicated, devoted staff members. The students participate in a variety of activities including outdoor and indoor play, arts & crafts, scheduled time for homework and snack (provided), service projects, and holiday celebrations. 

 

  • Regular Extended Day hours are after school to 5:30pm
  • Half-Day hours are 11:30am - 5:30pm. 
  • When there is EDC on a half-day, lunch is provided.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

In the event of inclement weather, it is the parent’s responsibility to listen to the radio or TV stations for Loudoun County announcements concerning closings, late openings, and early closings.  An email will be sent from EDC as soon as possible to let you know of any changes so you may make arrangements for the pick-up of your child(ren).  To keep all children, parents, and staff members safe during inclement weather, please note the following inclement weather policies:

  • If school is CLOSED for the day, there will be NOExtended Day Program.
  • If school closes EARLY due to inclement weather, there will be NOExtended Day Program. All students must be picked up within 30 minutes of the early dismissal time. Any child who is not picked up within 30 minutes of the early dismissal time will be charged $1.00 per minute/per child until the child is picked up.

There, they may also change into play clothes or a sports uniform if heading to a practice or game after leaving EDC. (Remaining in school uniform is acceptable as well.) Please note, however, that volleyball shorts or any tight/short shorts are not allowed. Mesh shorts similar to STCS P.E. shorts are acceptable.
