Optional Extended Afternoons

Three’s and Four’s children may enroll in our extended afternoon program and stay until 2:40pm, for either 2, 3, or 4 days per week.  Since children change so rapidly during their first year of school, the extended day option will be offered in two semesters which gives parents flexibility to add, subtract or keep the same number of extended days.  Costs are based on the number of extended days per week selected:

  • Fall semester (13 weeks):  $1,040/2 days – $1,560/3 days – $2,080/4 days
  • Spring semester (22 weeks):  $1,760/2 days – $2,640/3 days – $3,520/4 days
