Extended Day Programs
We like to think of our Extended Day program as the New Neighborhood: a safe, comfortable space to spend time with classmates, complete homework, build new friendships, explore new areas of interest, build specialized skills, and have fun at the end of a busy school day. We are committed to providing a variety of options in a safe and fun environment. Read on for more detailed information about our Extended Day Programs.
After-School Care is available on a drop in basis from 3:00 - 6:00 pm daily, with the exception of early dismissal days. After-School Care is supervised by regular Old Orchard staff members, not outside vendors, and there are at least two staff members are on duty at all times.
From 3:15 - 4:00 pm all students begin with a period of free play and relaxation
At 4:00 pm students have a quiet study hall period during which they may complete homework, work quietly on a project, or read. After-School staff are available for homework support and guidance whether it be completing a First Grade math sheet, solving an Algebra problem, or providing feedback on writing .
Organized Activities After completing homework, students may choose to take part in an organized activity led by our After-School Team, enjoy the playground, a game of four square, or simply visit with friends.
Healthy snacks (e.g. fresh fruit, crackers, apple sauce, etc.) are served each day at no extra charge.
