The Extended Care Program provides before- and after-school care for Montessori, Kindergarten, and Lower School families. The program’s goal is to provide students with safe and fun activities in a “home away from home” environment. A caring staff, cozy couches, and a relaxed atmosphere provide the ideal setting for forming wonderful friendships between students.
The 2,700 square-foot facility that houses Extended Care is a cheerful, brightly decorated space with two walls of windows that overlook the playground. Along with an arts and crafts area, the Ruth McLean Bowman Bowers Extended Care Building features a reading area, computer area, and study area with encyclopedias and dictionaries.
As an extension of the regular school day, Extended Care is extremely helpful for busy families. Extended Care is open to all Lower School students. Drop-off and pick-up times are structured to coincide with the schedules of all Lower School dismissal times and after-school programs.
Extended Care is available for every Saint Mary’s Hall Lower School student on a “drop-in" hourly basis, and charges are billed to the family monthly.
Busy families who know they will need the benefit of Extended Care on a regular basis can also enroll their students as full-time Extended Care attendees.
