EXTENDED CARE

Extended Care Programs

Extended Care is offered daily after school from 2:45 pm until 6:00 pm. The programs will be held on early dismissal days when there is a need as well as full school days.  The Extended Care Program will not be held on days when school is not in session.

We offer two options for children based on age level, and therefore after school needs. There is a $25 registration fee per child to purchase snacks, and care for either program is $5 per hour per child.

 

Aftercare Program - Grades 3k-2

The Aftercare Program is located in the Display/Lecture Room (Room 109).  Children in our preschool/kindergarten classes are escorted to the Aftercare room and those in grades 1 and 2 walk across the hallway from their classroom. Children then receive a snack and a chance to decompress and socialize for 30 minutes after what can be a rigorous school day. Children in Grades 1 and 2 who may have small amounts of homework also use this time to complete their assignments.

At that time, children proceed either to the playground or gymnasium depending upon the weather. We make every effort to give students time to run and play outside in the fresh air, provided the wind chill is above 0 degrees and it isn't raining. Children may be picked up by parents from either the Display/Lecture Room, Gymnasium, or playground.

 

YAP (Youth Afterschool Program) - Grades 3-8

YAP is located in Room 107.  Students proceed to YAP on their own and immediately receive a snack and begin working on homework, or reading a book if they don't have homework. YAP is staffed by our teachers, who provide homework assistance, small amounts of further instruction if necessary, and encouragement. After 30 minutes of quiet time, students who have completed their homework may play various board games quietly.

When all students are done with their homework, the group proceeds either to the outdoor play area or gymnasium depending upon weather. We make every effort to give students time outside in the fresh air, provided the wind chill is above 0 degrees and it isn't raining. Students may be picked up by parents from either Room 107, the Gymnasium, or outdoor play area.
