After School and Child Care

After-School Program and Child Care

Lower school begins at 8am each morning, with dismissal at 3pm; early drop-off is available, at no extra charge, beginning at 7:15am for children in PK - 5th grade and at 7:30am for children in the Preschool. Families may enroll in the After-School Program (ASP), with a choice of 4:45 or 6:00pm pick-up, either by contract (for the same days each week) or as needed on a drop-in basis. ASP is organized into three age groups: early years students (PS, PK, K), grades 1-4, and the fifth and sixth grade group. In addition to ASP, all-day child care is available during many school vacations, excluding federal holidays. Pre-registration for child care is required. 

List of 5 items.

  • Preschool, Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten

    ASP for the PS, PK, and K students is housed in the lower school early years wing, which has classroom facilities and outdoor play areas designed for this age group. The schedule includes snack, story, rest, free play, and special activities like nature walks, group games, and art projects. Special programs are also available for enrollment (e.g. theatre or art classes).
  • Grades 1-4

    In addition to snack and a balance of organized activities and free play, first through fourth grade ASP students have access to a quiet homework room. Our ASP facility, a separate building on the lower school campus, is equipped with computers, a kitchen, two classrooms, and a full-size gym, with an adjacent outdoor playground and mini turf field. Students may also sign up for activities like music lessons and special-interest clubs.
  • Grades 5-6

    The fifth and sixth grade ASP program is on the Friends middle/upper school campus. Fifth graders walk "up the hill" with faculty and are met by an ASP counselor (in bad weather, students are transported by school van). Fifth and sixth grade ASP begins with a snack and study hall (except Friday, no study hall). Activities include sports and games, computers, art, and attending home athletic events. In addition to the ASP snack provided, 5th and 6th graders may purchase food/drinks from the cafeteria using their student accounts.
  • Conference Care

    Conference care is offered to lower school parents while they attend their student's conference. It is free for the scheduled conference time. Please check the master calendar (login required) for details.
  • Child Care

    Child care is offered several times during the school year when school is closed. Students can participate in a variety of activities. Full day child care is from 7:30am to 6pm, half day child care is offered noon to 6pm.  Please check the master calendar (login required) for dates.
