Saint Philip the Apostle School offers an extended care program, known as Falcon's Nest, which is available to all children currently enrolled in St. Philip the Apostle School. Falcon's Nest has been designed to provide a safe and pleasant before and after school environment for our students. Students may be enrolled in Falcon's Nest on a full-time, part-time, or on a drop-in basis.
The director of Falcon's Nest is Maggie Sayegh who brings many years of experience to our program. Her staff are trained, experienced, enthusiastic people who make Falcon's Nest a home away from home.
Falcon's Nest is open in the morning for parents who wish to drop-off their children before the start of school, and in the afternoons following final dismissal. A limited Summer Program, Camp Falcon is also available.
Falcon's Nest offers a flexible program that includes a snack, homework time, arts and crafts and supervised play. Students who participate in sports, scouts or any other after school activities are allowed to do so and then sign-in to Falcon's Nest.
