Extended Day Options
Before School Care
Our morning care program is available to students in grades Primary–5, starting at 7:00 am at Doane Academy in Stacy Anderson’s 4th-grade classroom. Students may do their homework, play tabletop games, draw, do pencil-paper puzzles, read or engage in quiet conversation with classmates. At 8:00 am the students are dismissed from the program to go to their classrooms. There is no fee for this program.
After School Care
Parents are welcome to register their children for our after school care program, beginning at 3:30 pm. Students must be picked up no later than 6:00 pm. The program is held in the Math and Science Building in the designated after school care room. Space is limited, and all openings are allocated on a first come, first serve basis. As part of the program, students are provided with a snack and participate in organized play and homework time. Payment must be received in advance.
The Homework Club
The purpose of the Homework Club program is to provide students with a structured and monitored study environment after school. In addition, students can receive extra help from the teacher overseeing it on a given day. We encourage students to attend Homework Club any time they are seeking a quiet place on campus to work after school. Teachers, advisors, and parents may also recommend to students that they attend. If a parent wants their child to attend HWC on an on-going basis, they should notify the Head of Upper School so that he can communicate their child’s expected attendance to the teachers monitoring it.
The program will run daily from 3:30-4:30 p.m. and be held in the Newbold Resource Center on the third floor of Rowan Hall. A different teacher will oversee it each day, and these teachers will rotate in the same pattern each week so that students know in advance when an expert in a given area of need is available. Students should continue to schedule time with their teachers to discuss their progress, assignments, and challenges, and these teachers will still be available by appointment after school.
