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 $6 flat rate and runs from 8-8:30 a.m. Doors open at 8 a.m. Afternoon Extended Day is $12 per hour, charged in 30-minute increments, and runs from 3 p.m.-6 p.m. Families who have not picked up their child by 6 p.m. will be charged $6 per minute past 6 p.m. 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 is not available. Students who have not been picked up by 3:15 p.m. will be taken to the Student Services office to wait for pickup. Temporary or one-time requests must be made no later than 3 p.m. on the school day before the date needed. Day-of requests cannot be accommodated. If you need to miss a regularly scheduled day, please provide at least 24-hours notice. You will be charged for the entire 3 hours if your child is scheduled and sufficient notice of absence is not received.
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 Robin Fransen, 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.
