We are pleased to offer an after school care program for students in Beginners through Grade 6. The Chestnut Hill School Extended Day program offers fun activities and games, a quiet space to complete homework, and outdoor play.
Throughout the afternoon, students have a balance of structured, thematic activities, quiet time to complete homework, and time to play and socialize. This flexible schedule allows for students to enjoy cross-age experiences and explore interests outside the classroom.
Extended Day is offered at the end of each school day, five days a week. Families can register to have their child(ren) stay until 6:00pm Monday through Thursday, and/or on Friday until either 3:00pm or 5:00pm.
Please refer to the family handbook for rates. Financial Aid is available for Extended Day.
Students can be registered for the Extended Day program at any time during the school year. Registration is on a semester basis. (Fall is September-December, and spring is January-June.) The deadline for changes to enrollment are due by October 1 for the fall and February 1 for the spring.
In order to attend this program, students must be registered. Drop-in attendance is not available at this time.
In addition to Extended Day programming, we also offer several fee-based enrichment programs. All programs are $250 for each 8-week session. The first sessions are offered starting the week of September 12, 2022. Dates for winter and spring sessions will be provided at a later date.
