Extended Care Programs

We are happy to offer Extended Care and After School Programs at SCDS in the Lower School. Extended Care includes Morning Wait and After Care. Morning wait is complimentary and is held 7:30 - 8:15 AM.  Students are permitted to go to their classrooms at 8:15 AM, and class begins at 8:30 AM. After Care is offered each day at dismissal (3:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays and 3:00 PM on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays) until 5:45 PM.  After Care includes time to do homework and indoor play along with a snack.  Weather permitting, every After Care Class will visit the playground for one hour.
