Before / After School Child Care

The Child Care Program is a program of before and after school care for children so that they may remain in the safe, secure, and familiar environment of their school while enjoying activities such as arts, crafts, indoor and outdoor games, and movies to mention a few. 


The morning Child Care Program begins at 6:50 a.m. and ends when the duty teacher arrives at 7:35 a.m. 


The afternoon program begins when the school dismissal bell rings at 3:00 p.m. and ends at 5:25 p.m. 

The program operates Monday through Friday on regular school days. Please see the Child Care Handbook for more information.

Before / After School Options:

  1. Busing will be provided to and from BCA.  The bus will make satellite stops based on the need in various areas of the parish.  Bus transportation will not be provided for door to door pick-up or drop-off.  Only satellite stops are available. It is recommended that parents use their assigned bus stops.

  2. Before and After School Child Care will be provided from 6:50 a.m. to 5:25 p.m. 

  3. Parents may choose to drop off their children at school no earlier than 7:35 a.m. Scholars must not be dropped off once the duty teacher leaves their duty positions after the take-in bell rings at 8:00. Parents who enter the parent drop-off area after the classes have lined up for the morning bell must check in their child in the front office.

  4. Children can be picked up from school beginning at 3:00 p.m. in the parent pick up designated areas.  Parents must have a BCA Parent Pick-Up Sign for the current school year (obtained from the school) on the dashboard of the vehicle in order to pick up their child. Parent-made signs are not allowed. Parents not having an official parent-pick-up sign or a current sign will be sent to the office to pick up the scholar.  Please avoid blocking the driveways to homes and businesses along the car line.  Parents are not allowed to get their scholars from the office, unless the scholar is signed out by the office. Please be aware of the school zone speed limit. All students walking home must be at least 11 years old and have a permission letter on file.  

*Phone calls, emails, or faxes to the secretary stating the change of how a scholar is getting home in the afternoon will not be accepted after 1:00pm.
