Lebanon Catholic School’s P.E.A.R.S. Extended Day Program (PEARS) is a 10-month early childhood program for Pre-K and Kindergarten. PEARS Program is designed as a natural extension of the school day, providing a child-centered, safe, stimulating, and happy environment based on the philosophies and goals of the school. Because it is an extension of our regular academic program, the PEARS program extends the same values and religious atmosphere as during the regular school day. The PEARS Program employs highly-qualified early education staff that provides a family-life but structured atmosphere, emphasizing positive interaction, self-control, and responsibility.
Eligibility and Enrollment
The PEARS Program is open to Lebanon Catholic students enrolled in Pre-K or Kindergarten. PEARS comes under the jurisdiction of the principal, who has the administrative and supervisory responsibility of this program.
Pears begins: Tuesday, August 27, 2019
Hours of Available Care: From regular elementary dismissal until 6:00pm.
*PEARS Program is offered every full-day, but not on early dismissal days or early weather dismissal days. PEARS Program is not offered on holidays, non-operational days, Christmas vacation, Easter vacation, or during the summer.
Daily activities are planned by the PEARS staff. Students will participate in a variety of activities including board games, free play, arts & crafts, reading, movies, holiday parties, and outdoor activities (weather permitting). A healthy snack will be provided in the afternoon. If your child is on a special diet, the parents must provide the afternoon snack. Please advise us if your child has any food allergies.
Lebanon Catholic believes in setting reasonable limits and consequences while encouraging self-discipline. Constructive methods of discipline shall be used to promote good behavior. The staff will work with the children and cooperate with their parents to resolve any problems that may arise

PEARS Program closes at 6:00pm. Failure to pick up your child by 6:05pm will result in a $1.00 per minute charge which will be added to your monthly statement. Parents are asked to notify the school before 3:45pm if they will be late in picking up their child from PEARS.
If your child has not been picked up by 6:15pm and no notification has been given, one of the emergency contact persons will be called to pick up your child. Once your child has been picked up by the emergency contact, attempts will be made to contact the primary parent(s) or guardian. A sign will also be posted on the PEARS exit door to notify you which emergency contact person picked up your child and the PEARS staff will leave. Habitual late pick-up can result in dismissal from the program.
