School Age Care Information

The Mabel-Canton School has listened to your needs and has worked hard to organize a School Age Care program to help make your child care needs possible here at the school. 

We will be offering a Before and After School program for school aged students. Please click on the photo above to access the SAC Registration form. We will be fine tuning our hours/schedule to fit your needs as parents as the requests come in, so be sure and note the hours that you will need child care. If you have any questions, you can email and we will do our best to get back to you in a timely manner.

We are interested to hear your suggestions and advice if you are willing to offer it. Because this program is brand new, we will have to tweak a few things to make it work well for all of us, so be sure and let us know where we can improve. We will work hard to do our best!
