Extended Care Options
2021-22 School Year
The Extended Care program will resume for the 2021-22 school year for preschool-8th grade students. The goal of the program is to create a nurturing atmosphere for students in the transition time between school and home. Opportunity and direction are provided for a variety of individual/group, self-directed/structured, quiet/active, spontaneous/planned, and indoor/outdoor activities. Students are given guidance and support as needed for completing homework, exploring creatively, and playing cooperatively. Midway through the afternoon a snack is provided.
The Extended Care program is planned and structured to be consistent with the educational goals and philosophy of the school and follows the same health and safety protocols used in the classrooms. Extended Care staff regularly communicates with parents about the child's experience. New Garden Friends School offers three extended day programs for our preschool – 8th grade students. We are able to accommodate children who need care all afternoon, on a regularly scheduled part-time basis, and the occasional drop-in care.

For preschool students through 6th grade students, morning care is offered from 7:30-8:00 a.m. and afternoon care is offered until 6 p.m. each school day on the Guilford campus.
