Out of School Care

Clear Water Academy is pleased to offer the following programs:

The Out of School Care Programs are housed at St. Thomas More Hall. We offer a five-day program, from which you may choose Before and/or After School Care.

Our staff focuses on creating a safe and nurturing environment consistent with the spirit of the Integral Formation of our school. All staff members have Child Care Certification and have completed a Security Clearance.  Before school activities include opportunities for arts and crafts, painting, games and dramatic play. After school sessions include time for a snack, homework, outdoor play, and a choice of games, crafts, or reading.

  2.

Please note that registration is accepted on a first-come-first-served basis, and given the high demand for the program, spots fill up quickly. If there is no availability for your child(ren) in the program of your choice, your name will be placed on a wait list.


The Out of School Care Programs will open on the first day of school. Only those children whose completed registration form and Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) form have been received will be eligible to participate on that date.

Health and Safety

Please ensure that your child(ren)’s Medical Form and Authorization for Medication Form, have been updated/completed as part of the enrollment process.  

In compliance with Child and Family Services regulations, you will be asked to sign out your child daily. No student will be permitted to leave the school with anyone except a parent unless the permission waiver in our Out of School Care Registration form has been completed.

There are several safety considerations which are important to the security of our children. St. Thomas More doors are kept locked at all times and you will be assigned a security fob to enter the building. This security fob must be returned at the end of the school year. If you misplace your fob, please contact us immediately, as it must be deactivated in our system, and a new one will be issued to you at a cost of $20.

If you have any questions, please contact Judith Chima, Out of School Care Supervisor, at 403-240-7900 ext. 326 or jchima@clearwateracademy.com.
