Letter from Pastor Rev. Michael Petersen


C.A.R.E.S. provides Catholic daycare and pre-school classes on the St. Rita Parish campus.  C.A.R.E.S stands for Communications, Activities, Readiness, Enrichment, and Support.  Child care is offered year-round, Monday through Friday, from 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM for all children from the ages of 6 weeks through 13 years old.  Unique to C.A.R.E.S is our flexible drop-off and pick-up times that can easily accommodate a parent's varying daily schedule.

Before school times: 6:30 am to 8:15 am

After school times: 3:20 pm to 6:00 pm

We offer study time for children in Kindergarten through 8th grade, as well as having indoor and outdoor activities.  We have a fun and enriching environment inside where there are lots of books to read, music to dance, instruments to play and soft mats for infants to crawl on and more!  Outside activities in a fenced-in area include a slide to climb.

Our dedicated staff ensures that all children get the positive learning experiences they need to grow up happy in a safe and secure environment.
