The Extended Day program at The Little School offers a supportive and exciting environment that is responsive to the needs and interests of children of all ages. After the school day is done, students often require the flexibility to not only engage in independent projects and free play, but also in group games and teacher-directed activities. As such, the Extended Day program utilizes our campus in creative ways that incorporate all of our wonderful indoor and outdoor spaces. Our Extended Day program is truly an extension of the school day, and our talented staff provides a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn and explore outside of school hours.
Each day, students in Extended Day enjoy a school-provided snack. We do take allergies very seriously and make reasonable accommodations for dietary restrictions.
Morning Extended Day is a $10 flat rate and runs from 8-8:30 a.m. Doors open at 8 a.m. Afternoon Extended Day is $5 per half-hour and runs from 3 p.m.-6 p.m. Families who have not picked up their child by 6 p.m. will be charged $30 for each 5-minute increment. School-related business does not incur a charge.
In order to provide the best experience for our students in the Extended Day program and staff accordingly, families are asked to reserve space for consistent Extended Day usage in advance. Drop-in care may be available if space permits. Students who have not been picked up by 3:15 p.m. will be taken to Extended Day, and charges will incur. Cancellations to an Extended Day reservation must be received by 12 p.m. of the previous day, or there will be a charge of $30 for the day.
Extended Day uses an electronic kiosk to document attendance and process child care charges. Families are given individualized PIN numbers at the beginning of the year that serve as an electronic signature. If you do not know your PIN or you need one for an approved pick up, please email Autumn Morrison, the director of after school programs.
Please be sure to use the kiosk each day when dropping off or picking up your child from Extended Day. If students are not checked out via the system, your family will be charged for the full day regardless of when pickup occurred.
