Before-School Care is always held in the Pre-K Room, # 34. After-School Care students are busy all around campus. On rainy days, afternoon care is hosted either in the Hall of Feathers or the Early Childhood Center. All teachers and faculty have access to Walkie-Talkies to communicate with the Extended Care staff to locate your child.

During the first 30 minutes after school, students are given the choice of free and unstructured play outside, working in the garden, art activities, or quiet reading.

At 3:30 p.m., all students on campus, with the exception of those involved in an on-campus activity, such as Girl Scouts or After School Adventures (ASA), are signed in to After Care. Once a student’s name has been added to our roster, s/he must be signed out by an adult. Snack follows sign-in.

After snack, children are free to choose among a variety of activities, such as arts and crafts projects, organized sports, free play, cooking, or Homework Club. (Students staying for care after ASA are added to the roster and offered a snack at 4:30 p.m.)
Every Monday through Thursday, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m., an Extended Care team member is in Room #36 (KO) for Homework Club. Homework Club is a drop-in space where students can complete their assignments or do other quiet activities.

Appropriate safety measures are in place to ensure that browsing is limited to websites with school-appropriate material.
