Later Gators

Afterschool Care Program

“After school care with a flair for fun” is the theme of the Later Gators program. We offer a safe place for your children to be after a day at Holy Name of Jesus School. There are many activities available for your child to participate in. They also are given time to complete homework before heading home.

Hours of Operation and Eligibility
Later Gators is open from after carpool until 6:00 PM after each full day of school starting August 21, 2017 to May 23, 2018. Later Gators is only available to students enrolled at Holy Name of Jesus School for the 2017-2018 school year. Every student, grades PK3-7th grade is automatically registered in the Later Gators program.

Activities Available
In addition to the standard after school care supervision, Later Gators offers a variety of classes. There is a separate fee for each class that must be scheduled and paid to the instructor separately. The list of available classes will be posted and distributed. There is also a $3 per class fee due to Later Gators with registration of classes if on the Day Rate Plan. (Ex: 12 sessions of Tumbling = $36 due to Later Gators in addition to class registration.) Classes will begin after Labor Day for the first semester.

Later Gators offers the following classes:
  • Bricks 4 Kidz
  • Girls on the Run
  • Golf
  • Guitar
  • Homework Clinic
  • Karate

Charges
Later Gators charges must be paid on time. There are two payment options for Later Gators – a day rate, and a monthly rate. 
  • Day Rate
    • $11 per day, per student if you are not on a monthly plan. This will be tallied at the end of each month and billed through FACTS at the beginning of the following month.
    • Families on the Day Rate will pay $3 per student per day for days they are in Later Gators classes in addition to the fee paid to the class instructor.
  • Monthly Rate
    • The fees will be deducted at the beginning of each month (August-May). The rate is as follows:
      • 1 child - $125 per month (approximately $7.50 per day)
      • 2 children - $215 per month (approximately $6.50 per day)
      • 3 children - $300 per month (approximately $6 per day)
    • The fees for the monthly rate are based using the school calendar year and are then broken into a set of even monthly fees. Since the monthly fee is arrived at by using the school calendar (allowing for all holidays, in-services, etc.), the monthly amount DOES NOT CHANGE no matter how many Later Gator days there are in a given month or days a family chooses not to attend. 
    • If a family chooses the monthly rate, they MUST do the monthly rate for the entire semester (August-December & January-May) or the entire year (August-May). They will automatically be billed on the first of each month if they choose this plan.
    • Families on the monthly rate would not pay any Later Gators fee for classes (though they are still responsible for the class fee to the class instructor)
