Beginners & Pre-K Afternoon Program



Staffed by the classroom teachers and associates, this optional afternoon program provides a developmentally appropriate balance of structured, theme-based activities and opportunities for free play. The program incorporates time for lunch  - students bring their lunch or order from SmartLunches; only milk is provided - and a rest period.  Families can choose any number of days from Monday thru Thursday either for lunch only (11:50am - 1:00pm) or for the full afternoon (11:50am - 3:00pm).  We also offer a “drop-in” option, whether a student is enrolled or not, to support families with any unexpected or short-term coverage needs. If at all possible, we ask that you contact the classroom teacher at least 48 hours notice before a “drop-in.”




Below are the afternoon schedules for each grade, as well as the activity focus for each day. On occasion, teachers may alter the schedule in response to the needs of the group or to accommodate special activities.
