Extended Day Program

Extended Day Program

Extended Day is our before & after school care program. Our program provides a safe and enriching environment that meets the needs of the diverse population of children who attend. We offer an on campus, reduced rate program to those who are either dropped off early at school, or stay late after school. Extended Day Aides are First Aid and CPR certified and have been trained in the Nurtured Heart approach.

Morning Care 7:30 - 8:30

Each morning, children can arrive and eat breakfast (either from home, or school) and participate in quiet activities or games. At 8:30, children go to the old playground for morning recess until the bell rings and proceed to their classrooms for the day.

Afternoon Care 2:50-5:30

Each afternoon, children are offered a healthy snack, outside playtime, an engaging teacher-led activity, and an opportunity to do homework, relax, participate in quiet games, or read books, all the while having fun in a positive and enriching environment.
