Saint Ann After School Program

The after school program at Saint Ann is designed to meet the needs of working parents
by providing quality child care when school is not in session.

The Program

St. Mary Villa offers the after school programs at Saint Ann School, as well as other local schools in the Diocese of Nashville. We strongly believe that the program is a place where children can grow academically, socially, and emotionally within a safe and secure environment.

Our goal is to provide structure and limits, as well as adequate freedom and various choices for the children to thrive and be successful. The environment is designed to foster independence and allow all students the chance to grow and learn at their own pace.

Our staff receives special training in developmentally appropriate practice for school age care, in addition to basic first aid and CPR. The staff is dedicated to ensuring a safe and happy experience for all children while in our care.

In order for the program to be successful and meet the diverse needs of everyone, input from both parents and students is vital. We want parents to feel comfortable in making suggestions for improvements or voicing any concerns as they arise. We welcome the opportunity to talk with our stakeholders to make the program a success.
