Our Extended Day Program is designed to provide continued learning in a discovery-style environment. Students are exposed to new and exciting themes and are encouraged to learn and play in an organized but relaxed environment.
Story Time: While morning students are headed home, Extended Day students gather in the school library for a story. Surrounded by hundreds of books, there is something magical about listening to a read-aloud in this special room.
Lunch: After a stop at the restroom, your child will pick up his or her lunchbox and prepare for lunch. Placemats and tableware are provided along with a group prayer and conversation.
Discovery Time: Students self-select from a variety of activities that focus on the weekly theme. Will it be dinosaur footprints in play dough? Or brushing marshmallow teeth? How about searching for bugs on the nature trail? Whatever the theme, there is plenty to discover and learn.
Quiet Time: A rest time is built into each afternoon as required by the state. Soft music is played while students rest on sheet-covered mats. Don’t forget your favorite lovey or blanket!
Large Motor Activities: Weather-permitting, extended day students go outside two times between 11:30am and 3pm. Running, hopping, climbing, jumping, digging, cycling, crawling…it’s time to move!
Investigations: The world of science is fascinating to young children. We foster that natural curiosity with hands-on experiments and demonstrations that show what an amazing world God made!
