Extended Day

Whether your child is looking for lots of exciting activities, or relishes the opportunity to play and socialize with friends, he or she can come “home” afterschool to the Extended Day neighborhood. Extended Day is a free choice environment supervised by a caring, supportive and dynamic staff. Children can start their homework, “hang out” with friends or participate in a variety of activities that cater to a wide range of interests. On a typical afternoon the art studio is open where children are making masks and sculptures; children are playing kickball in the gym, cooking in the kitchen, playing games or telling stories.  

  • Extended Day hours are 3-6:15 p.m. at the Lower School and 3:15-6:30 p.m. at the Upper School. Friday closing times differ from October-April due to Shabbat.
  • Parents can register their children for 1-5 days per week, on a yearly or monthly basis.
  • Children can also participate in the Afterschool Hour, one hour of Extended Day (3-4 p.m. at the Lower School, 3:15-4:15 p.m. at the Upper School).
  • For occasional unexpected circumstances, there is a “drop-in” option.
