After School & Enrichment Programs

Enrichment Class Schedule


St. Stephen's offers two types of after school programs for its students: Extended Aftercare Services and Enrichment Programs. The After School Program is committed to ensuring the social, recreational, and academic growth of its students by providing a safe, positive, and nurturing environment where students can thrive in every activity. The safety and well-being of the students are of foremost concern. There is an off-duty police officer on campus until the last student leaves. The After School Program begins immediately after school and runs until 6:00 PM on every full day of school.

Enrichment Program

In After School Enrichment classes, students have the opportunity to explore and develop a variety of new interests such as art, robotics, chess, archery, soccer, and more. All classes are presented in a fun and skill-building environment.

Enrichment classes are offered in two sessions during the school year, Fall which runs September through December and Winter/Spring which runs January through May. A description of Enrichment Classes, registration, and payment are done online.

After Care

Aftercare is designed to be a convenient and helpful service to our parents. Students in Aftercare have time for supervised free indoor/outdoor play as well as time to work on homework. Students in the aftercare program are provided with a safe, fun place to wait until they are picked up. Students who stay in aftercare are provided a snack.

Aftercare is available on every FULL day of school.  It is offered from 2:30 – 6:00 pm. Aftercare Services and Enrichment Programs are not offered on early dismissal days. For any further questions, contact the Director, Ileana Nardo at or 305-537-1268.

Aftercare is offered on every full day of school, 2:30pm – 6:00pm. It is not offered on early dismissal days. You do not register your child for Aftercare. It is a walk-in service. If you would like for your child to stay in Aftercare, simply advise your child’s homeroom teacher. Any student not picked up at the dismissal line will be signed into Aftercare.

Aftercare is offered from 2:30pm – 6:00pm daily and is billed at a rate of $10 per hour or any portion thereof. Billing time starts at the end of the student’s dismissal time:
PK-SK: 2:45pm
Gr. 1-2: 3:00pm
Gr. 3-5: 3:15pm
Late fee of $10 every 15 minutes will be charged for any child picked up after 6pm.

Registration for enrichment classes is only done online. You may access the registration site and weekly class schedule on the SSEDS After School page.

Policy on Enrichment Class Changes/Drop/Refunds

Students enrolled in enrichment classes are escorted by a teacher to Aftercare. The after school staff escorts the students to their enrichment classes. There is no charge for aftercare service prior to the start time of enrichment classes.  Students needing aftercare service after their enrichment class will be billed at a rate of $10 per hour or any portion thereof. Students who are not picked up promptly will be sign into Aftercare.

Parents must park in a designated parking area and come onto campus to sign out their child. The main office entrance is open until 4pm. The McFarlane entrance (church side) opens at 4pm for parent pick-up.

  • The After School staff will facilitate the parent with pick up location.

All children must be signed out by a parent or authorized party.  In order for the school to release your child, parents or an authorized party may be asked to show proof of identification to an aftercare staff member.

The recess court and picnic area is reserved for After School use only. If you are a parent with a sibling waiting for your child to finish an after school activity, kindly wait at the Johnston Building picnic tables area. Your child is always welcome to play on the court if he/she is signed into the After School Program.

It is the school's policy that contracted SSEDS teachers are the only adults permitted to use the campus for tutoring/homework purposes. All adults who work on our property have gone through the hiring process and have passed a background check.
