Extended Day


Children in both the Early Childhood and Elementary Programs may be dropped off after 7:45 am at no additional cost.  If you need care prior to 7:45 am, Early Bird care is available beginning at 7:30am.


Our Extended Day program runs daily from 3:00 to 6:00 pm and is open for children ages 2 through sixth 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!


Our Extended Day Program starts with a healthy snack provided by the school.  Once snack time is done, it's out to the lower playground, a great place to run around with friends after the school day.  The children climb on the playground, dig and build in the sandbox, soar on the swings, "cook" in the kitchen - and of course, make up their own imaginative games.  We spend most of the time outside either playing on the playground, or exploring our beautiful campus and garden. When it's a bit too rainy or cold, we head inside to the Commons where children can participate in play options such as building with blocks, practicing on the balance beam and playing board games. Time is made and assistance given to children in K-6 to work on their homework.  


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 2 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.
