We understand that as a parent, your schedule can vary from day today. Every family is different, and we want to help reduce the stress of childcare as much as we can. That’s why Little Jewels Learning Center offers convenient before and after school care to children attending Corpus Christi Catholic School in Bloomington, IL.
What Are The Hours?
Before School Care: 6:30 a.m. - 7:45 a.m.
After School Care: 3:15 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
There is a $5 late closing fee charged for each 15-minute interval (or portion thereof) past 5:30 p.m.
Is Treasures Open When School Is Closed?
Treasures will be open on half-days from when school is released at 11:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. On certain school holidays or breaks, Treasures will be open 6:30 a.m.- 5:30 p.m. On snow days when Corpus Christi cancels school, Treasures will not be open. (See calendar for specific dates)
What Activities Will The Treasures Program Provide?
Upon arrival, the child is provided with a transitional period to meet his or her own needs. This includes using the bathroom, eating snacks, and physical activity. During the rest of the time, the activities are designed to enhance the child's day in a wholesome educational environment. The following is an example of the type of activities parents could expect their child to encounter:
3:15 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
- Transition period and attendance taken
- Outdoor playtime
- Special activity (arts and crafts, organized games, etc.)
- Free choice
- Homework and study time
- Interactive activities (table games, drawing, reading, etc.)
*An afternoon snack will be provided on school days. Lunch from home must be brought on half-days or days where Treasures at Corpus Christi is open all day.
What Is Needed To Enroll?
Our families must fill out the required registration paperwork, which can be found here. There is a $35 registration fee per child.
Authorization to Pick Up Your Child
It is required that parents sign their child out each day. No child will be released to a person not authorized by a parent. We must have written authorization for changes in this respect. Please let the staff know who is picking up your child. If you are unable to pick up your child before 6 p.m., please arrange for an authorized person to pick up your child. The said authorized person must present an ID for the child to be released to them.
Dismissal From Program May Result When:
- Payment is more than five days late
- Pickup is persistently late
- Parent persistently omits to sign out daily
- A condition exists such that participation in the Treasures program is not advisable. In such a case, a parent conference will first be requested. Children are expected to cooperate with the staff and follow the procedures and guidelines. (See Discipline Policy)
What Can Your Child Bring From Home?
On full days out of school, your child is allowed to bring toys or electronic devices from home. Please make sure items brought from home have your child’s name on them. The Treasures at Corpus Christi program is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items.
Parents are responsible for contacting the Treasures at Corpus Christi program if their child will NOT be attending. You may give written authorization of the absence, e-mail to the director, or phone call to the director. It is NOT the school’s responsibility to notify Treasures of your child’s absence.
Is There a Sibling Discount?
Treasures at Corpus Christi does offer a sibling discount for students who are enrolled full-time. This means they attend 4/5 days a week. If a family has more than one child enrolled in Treasures, they receive a $20/week discount. If a family has a child enrolled in Treasures full time and a sibling attends a Little Jewels center full time, they may receive a $75/week sibling discount.
