The After School Program operates from 3:15 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. every day school is in session, with the exception of specific days indicated on the school calendar. The children gather in the Extended Care room, which is set up for arts/crafts, blocks and manipulatives, dramatic play, reading, board games and puzzles. They also play outdoors and utilize the gym.

Communication with parents and caregivers is an essential element of the program. Monthly calendars, notices, reminders and messages are sent home. For safety reasons, all children in the program must be signed out daily by a parent or caregiver.
Supervised homework time begins after the children have snack and time to unwind from the school day. Staff encourages a quiet and independent atmosphere while providing problem-solving assistance as needed. Please let the program director know if your child has special homework arrangements or materials.
A nutritious snack is provided daily.
