Lower School Extended Day
Our Extended Day program offers care for Lower School children who require supervision beyond the end of the school day. Our warm and nurturing staff organizes a wide array of activities each afternoon. These include crafts, board and card games, outdoor play, as well as quiet space to tackle homework in the upper grades. A daily snack is served.
During your child’s time with us, Extended Day fosters a safe sense of community while reinforcing Park School’s ideals of fair play and respectful discourse with peers and adults. Look for familiar faces as well as some new staff this fall. Our staff will facilitate a smooth transition between the school day and the student’s time in our program.
