Aftercare Program

The Aftercare Program provides students with a safe and nurturing environment that meets the needs of our Lower School students and families during after-school hours. Students are engaged in a variety of planned activities from 3-6 PM.


After an academically demanding day at school, the Aftercare Program offers plenty of time for friends, fun and relaxation in a safe environment. Students are engaged in a variety of activities ranging in interest from arts and crafts to outside play, indoor games and homework. This program provides students in PreK – 5th grade with a flexible program from 3-6 PM. Students may attend from two to five days a week or on a drop-in basis as needed.

*Note that aftercare staff will not be able to transfer children to and from other after school programs (i.e. sports, music lessons, tutoring). Our staff will remain with children attending the aftercare program during the duration of the day. Please arrange separately for your child to be brought to the aftercare office during other after school programs.

Homework
There will be times during the Aftercare Program that children will be able to work on their homework. There will also be a designated homework room where children can choose to go to complete all of their homework if needed/wanted. However, we will encourage the students to participate in the activities of the day to be part of the whole program.

Daily Schedule
There will be a rotating schedule that includes outside time and activity stations daily.

*As long as weather and daylight permit we will be going outside daily. Please remember to send your child with the appropriate gear for the season.

Pick-Up
Students will leave from room L018 outside the Great Room. When you arrive, the supervising teacher will call for your child(ren) and they will be brought to you at the door. Parents/guardians must show photo identification at pick up. 

Aftercare Contracts, Schedules, and Rates
Aftercare is offered on regular school days from dismissal until 6:00 PM. Parents may contract on a 2, 3, 4, or 5 day basis for the academic year.

For drop-in, please notify Lower School Attendance and Aftercare 24 hours in advance of using drop-in care. In the event of an emergency, please notify both as soon as possible.
