Lower School Extended Day
FRA recognizes the unique problems facing working parents in securing quality care in the hours before and after school. Our philosophy is to provide fun and meaningful experiences far beyond the classroom. Students are supervised by trained and experienced staff members who will provide quality care for the students.
Extended Day begins at 7:00 a.m. and ends at 6:00 p.m. Students enrolled in this program are eligible to participate on early dismissal days, snow days, and school holidays. Full days and holidays require a minimum of twelve students to remain open.
Extended Day is a fun program committed to providing students a balanced life through arts, sports, and activities. We also include activities to develop and reinforce good character traits such as respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.
Extended students have the perfect opportunity to have fun, learn, socialize, and develop compassion and concerns for others. After arriving, students are provided several choices of snacks while they socialize. Students participate in a variety of supervised, age-appropriate activities including organized gym games/sports, creative projects, cooking, trivia, and outdoor play. Homework supervision and assistance is provided by the Extended Day teachers. Students may also participate in after-school enrichments for a fee. Current enrichments include Pre Building Blocks, LEGO Robotics, dance, fiddle, keyboarding, piano, Mandarin Chinese, Wee Arts, clay, chess, karate, golf and songwriting.
Whether your child spends every day with us or drops in occasionally, we welcome you!
