Our Early Childhood Extended Day Programs are designed to nourish each child and fit your schedule.
Families may select and commit to an enrollment schedule for a given term that reflects their needs. Tuition is based on the number of days enrolled per week and is additionally adjusted to reflect the family’s level of tuition and tuition assistance.
Early Childhood Extended Day Program
The Extended Day program is available from 1–3 p.m. daily and is designed for children who attend BWS early childhood classes and who need additional care. The After Care program is available from 5 or 5:45 pm on particular days.
After having lunch with their lead teachers and cleaning up, the children are brought together into one of the early childhood classrooms. The afternoon rhythm provides time to wind down after a busy day in the classroom. Children have an opportunity for socialization and are able to make new friends from different classes and play in a smaller, more intimate group. The lead teachers lovingly transition the children to the Extended Day teachers who then prepare the children for rest through either music and/or story. After rest time, the children have quiet play in the classroom, a small simple snack, such as apple slices, then dismissal. The older children in Extended Day may experience either indoor or outdoor play, crafts, art projects and imaginative building
The Extended Day program costs correspond with the family tuition and assistance level for the current school year and thus will vary for each family depending on tuition level, program and the number of days the child is enrolled in the Extended Day program.
