Parenting adults are often surprised when their children ask them if they can stay at school late because they have so much fun at Extended Day.
Updated August 15, 2022
We are excited to launch the Fall 2022-23 Extended Day program. A re-imagined afterschool program, Extended Day is grounded in equity, joy, and exploration, and is a place where children want to be!
Students will enjoy snacks, age-appropriate activities, play and/or study groups that focus on our students’ needs, equity, joy, and connection. All children have access to daily play, study and homework groups, and special age-relevant “explorations” in movement, art, science, sports, storytelling, and more. Equally as important, the program will offer children an opportunity to wind down and relax at the end of their school day.
For Preschool 3, Extended Day will begin Tuesday, September 6, to allow the students to acclimate to the classroom, teachers, and other students before extending their time on campus.
- Hours: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
For Preschool 4 - 8th Grade, Extended Day will begin Monday, August 29
- 8:00 am - 6:00 pm for Preschool 4
- 7:30 am - 6:00 pm for K - 8th Grade
- Options for drop-in or regular use (one, three, or five days per week) are available.
- During the Fall semester, the program will be led by SFS staff. When health and safety protocols allow, classes by outside vendors and music instructors will resume.
- instructors will resume.
- Information and registration will be accessed through our online management system Jumbula.
Please note that as health & safety guidelines change, our Extended Day program and hours may change as well.
Preschool 3 and 4
Preschoolers expand their social horizons in a warm and caring environment with a variety of activities. Both the morning and afternoon programs give children a chance to play indoors and outdoors. Our expansive outdoor area allows children to engage in free play — to run, dig, build, swing, and imagine. In the afternoon, there are games, art activities, STEAM experiences, and favorite preschool pastimes. A late afternoon snack will be provided.
*Preschoolers with elementary school siblings may be dropped off in morning care between 8-9:00 am free of charge.
Elementary (Kindergarten - 5th Grade)
For the fall semester, students will enjoy an afterschool club model that provides a snack at dismissal time, enrichment activities, time to relax and play in the many outdoor areas, receive additional support with homework, and connect with other students.
- Students’ choice of games, crafts, and activities each day
- Fee-based specialty classes (60 minutes) led by SFS staff and outside vendors (see what’s offered at our registration on Jumbula!)
