Crusader Care

Saint Cecilia provides students in preschool* through 6th grade** with a safe, nurturing place to spend the hours before and/or after school. Here, in a warm and welcoming environment, children can work on their studies; enjoy indoor activities such as reading, social games and art projects; play outdoors, weather permitting; and more.

*Children must be 5 years of age to use Crusader Care.

*7th and 8th graders may attend Crusader Care with prior permission of the director.

We offer diverse, age-appropriate activities that stimulate young minds and provide opportunities for active play. Many of the children do their homework with staff on-hand to provide assistance. Our program is located in the school (the actual location may change this year) preschool classroom.

Crusader Care offers children

  • Help with homework
  • Engaging activities
  • A secure and welcoming environment
