Extended Day Program

Before Care

Our Before Care program begins at 8:00 am daily.

 

Campers should be walked into the building by an adult who signs them in with our staffer at the school lobby door.  Activities in Before Care include pick-up sports such as gaga, quiet activities such as drawing, coloring, and books, and free play. Breakfast may be brought from home. At 8:50 am, campers are escorted to their classrooms by staff. 

 

The ratio of campers to staff in Before Care is about 6:1. 

 

We regret that campers cannot be dropped off earlier than 8:00 am. 

 

At no time may campers be left to sit on the exterior stairs or in the Grand Hall of the Temple, as there is no one to supervise them.

Extended Day 

Extended Day Programming runs from 3:00 - 6:00 daily, staffed by our Extended Day Team which is dedicated expressly to serving our extended day campers. Our camper-to-staff ratio is about 5:1. 

 

Schedule:

At 3:00, campers enrolled in our Extended Day Program are escorted up to the Social Hall for some transition time. Once daily carpool pickup and staff meetings are over, they are brought back down to the school level of the building for a healthy snack. Snack options may include hummus and carrots, fresh fruit and fruit cups, cereal, nut-free granola bars, cheese and crackers, pudding cups, graham crackers, pretzels and sunflower butter. Water is always available.

Campers then rotate through a variety of activities such as sports, reading/relaxation room, arts/crafts, board games, and playground. On Fridays, we offer ice cream sundaes with dairy-free alternatives, and then provide a choice of two movies plus freshly popped popcorn. 

Enrollment in Extended Day is for the full summer, and pro-rating is not possible at this time.

We do offer a limited number of drop-ins on an ad-hoc basis. Please inquire in advance if possible so we can ensure we have sufficient staff to maintain our ratios.
