 We are a year-round program for children ages 5-12  who are currently enrolled at St. Patrick School or are registered members of St. Patrick Catholic Church.  We are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) housed in the Learning Center at St. Patrick’s School.

We provide care on school days - Monday through Friday - 6:30am to 8:30am before school and 3:30pm to 6:00pm after school.  

The SAC program follows the school’s schedule and calendar.  When the school is not in session, SAC services will not be available except during extended school breaks (Christmas Break and Spring Break) and on calamity days like snow days.  Care during these days will be provided from 6:30am to 6:00pm.

As a school age program, we provide the following services:

  • Breakfast and afternoon snack served daily (packed lunches should be brought from home during school breaks and on snow days)
  • Homework assistance and time to complete assignments daily
  • Computers and software, including Accelerated Math and Accelerated Reader
  • Daily activities selected by the staff members to foster emotional, intellectual, physical, and social growth and that are creative and geared toward seasonal themes and child interests

SAC also plans activities to build community appreciation and awareness. Past projects include: Madison County Humane Society, crafts for the Arbors, picking up litter in the neighborhood, raising money for less fortunate children, and writing to soldiers overseas.

Our staff is continuously growing professionally. Each staff member is required to take at least 10 hours of in-service covering child development, first aide/CPR, classroom management, and integrating the arts. Staff members also are required to attend at least one annual School Age Care conference.
