The Afternoon Program is designed as a supplement for the children in our half-day early childhood program, ages 2-5. The Afternoon Program includes a lunch period and rest time, as well as time for children to work on small group and individual projects. This program is tailored to each individual child’s needs. Children who require an afternoon nap are allowed the time to sleep and recharge for the rest of their day. Children who require a short rest period are able to work in a small group atmosphere on projects that include storytelling, book making, hands-on art projects and outdoor explorations. Pick-up for the Afternoon Program is at 2:45pm. Parents may opt to have their child(ren) join the PJS Extended Workshop program from 3:00 to 6:00pm (see below).

Please contact Dina Kunkle, Afternoon Program Teacher, dkunkle@princetonjuniorschool.org with any questions about this program.



Extended Workshop Program

Our Extended Workshop program runs daily from 3:00 to 6:00 pm and is open for children ages 2 through fifth grade.  This mixed age experience allows children to foster and nurture new friendships across grade levels while creating new opportunities for peer mentorship.  The Extended Workshop Program is centered in the arts and gives children ample opportunities to unleash their creativity.  From clay and paint to fibers and textiles, children get to use high quality materials while learning new skills.  From our youngest learners to our school leaders, children have so much fun they usually don't want to leave!

Please contact Allison Smith, Extended Workshop Program Director, asmith@princetonjuniorschool.org with any questions about this program.

Vacation Program

Our full-day vacation program is available on special days when school is closed and offers a fun way for our students to spend their days off from school. These days include teacher workdays, conference days, and during parts of the winter and spring breaks.  It is available to PJS Toddler-Grade II students and their siblings.  The program runs from 9am -3pm.  Before care is available from 8am-9am and after care is available until 6pm for an additional fee.  Advance registration is required.
