Extended Day Programs

Our Extended Day Programs currently include Lunch Buddies and Stay & Play. Both options provide an opportunity for children to participate in mixed-age groups, and build on the sense of community at the school. Children who stay for the full day are encouraged to take a rest after lunch.

Pick up from Lunch Buddies is at 1 PM. Pick up from Stay & Play is at 2:30 PM.

Enrichment activities are offered during Stay & Play, and currently include:

Mondays: Jump Into Spanish
Tuesday: Art Explorations
Wednesdays: Super Sports
Thursdays: Music Adventures
Fridays: STEM Fridays

See the detailed descriptions of each Enrichment Activity below:

Jump Into Spanish Just as the name implies, this will be an immersive language experience. Led by Britta, a native of Mexico, classes will expose children to Spanish through movement, songs, games, cooking, and activities that engage the senses and imagination. Each class will also have a list of vocabulary words that will be sent home so you can practice them with your children.  

Art Explorations Helena Zaino joins us again this year to bring a world of Masterpieces to the children! We are beyond excited to have Helena with us again. Her art programs offer hands-on experiences for children to explore different famous artists, from cave drawings, all the way to contemporary art and everything in between. Children gain self confidence as they use art mediums for artistic expression.  

Super Sports The Super Sports program is presented by Be Ahead of the Game, an organization that provides opportunities for movement, sports, games, and fun to all ages of children. Super Sports introduces a variety of sports and the basic skills needed to play these sports. Cooperation and teamwork are the focus, and players learn proper warm-up, games, and stretching in addition to rules and tactics. A wide variety of sports and games are covered, all while having fun! Children should wear sneakers for this program.  

Music Adventures Rachel Williams, an experienced music teacher in Sudbury, Weston, and Wayland, will be leading the children in a weekly exploration of music and movement. She incorporates play, improvisation, stories, and whole-body movement into her classes. The classes not only allow the children to have fun and experience the joy of music; they also support early literacy skills, patterns and math concepts, and social-emotional growth through cooperation and dramatic play.  

STEM Fridays It's time to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math! The children participate in a hands-on presentation, do experiments, and use their natural curiosity to investigate and question the world around them. This program includes special visitors in technological fields!
