Hello, my name is Debbie Polston and I am so excited to be part of the wonderful teaching staff here at SMKCS! This will be my second year teaching one of our morning Pre-K classes and my third year as Childcare Coordinator.
Originally from New York State, I received my degree in Early Childhood Education in 1988. I taught Pre-K there for 1 ½ years before moving to Georgia where I taught Pre-K for 4 years until I decided to stay home and raise my children. During my “retirement” I homeschooled and ran an in-home childcare center.
I live in Floyds Knobs with my husband and 4 of our 7 children whose ages range from 26 to 8. We are active members of this parish and have an 8th and 3rd grader here at SMKCS. We feel very blessed to call this parish home.
I truly believe that all children are a gift from God and I feel honored and blessed to be a part of their lives through teaching and our childcare mininsty.
St. Mary Of The Knobs Child Care Ministry is made up of a team that is committed to providing a fun and safe before and after school care for all of our SMK students, preschool – Grade 7. We are open from the hours of 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. of each day that school is in session.
During the after school care, each student will receive a snack, enjoy various activities in the child care classroom, gym and computer lab. When the weather permits, students will also have playtime outdoors. Your child can also participate in the "homework club" where each student is provided the opportunity to complete homework assignments in a quiet area.
If you would like rate information or have any questions or concerns, please call the child care room @ 812-923-2482.
