Before and After School Programs
The Before and After School Care at The Little School offers a supportive and exciting environment that is responsive to the needs and interests of children of all ages. In the morning, as they wait to join their class, students engage in independent, indoor activities. 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 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.
Before School Care is $13 per hour, charged in 30-minute increments and runs from 7:30-8:30 a.m. Doors open at 7:30 a.m. After School Care is $13 per hour, charged in 30-minute increments, and runs from 3:15 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. Use for school-related business with prior arrangement does not incur a charge.
In order to provide the best experience for our students in Before and After School Care and staff accordingly, families are asked to reserve space for consistent 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 Admin Building 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 can be accommodated if space is available. 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 enough notice of absence is not received.
Before and After School Care uses an electronic kiosk to document attendance and process 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 Ray Castillo Jr, the Director of After School Programs.
Please be sure to use the kiosk each day when dropping off or picking up your child from Before and After School Care. If students are not checked out via the system, your family will be charged for the full day regardless of when pickup occurred.
