After School

Extended Day for The Experiential School & Lower School 

Extended Day is designed to provide a safe, nurturing, and enjoyable environment for children who require supervision beyond school hours on a regular basis. Activities will include outdoor play, time for homework, games and crafts. Care is offered from 2:45 - 6:00pm on regular school days, beginning August 20, 2021. 

Extended Day locations:
Alpha and JK: begin extended day with a snack in an Experiential School classroom. Around 3:15 they move to the exploratorium and/or the ES playground.

Kindergarten & first grade: Charger Commons Lower School Dining Room and LS playground.

Second - fourth grades: Charger Commons Upper and Middle School Dining Room and LS playground.

Checking out students:
Anyone picking up a student should park and walk to Charger Commons. They will sign the student out with one of the Extended Day staff. If the pickup person is unknown to the staff member, they will need to show ID and be on the student’s pick up list. 

Child Care on School Closed Days

As an extra service, child care is often available for Alpha – fourth graders when school is closed: Half Days and School Closed Days.

Separate registration is required for these days. They are not included in Extended Day registration.
