Extended Day

Barrieā€™s Extended Day Program is offered before and after school for students age 18 months through Grade 8, beginning at 7:00am and ending at 6:00pm.

The Extended Day Program offers a warm and nurturing environment, which will meet the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical needs of your child. While respecting the individuality of your child's development, the program fosters a sense of community within the group, encourage learning between the children, and enhances your child's emerging social skills. Group leaders are sensitive to the developmental needs of the child and provide appropriate support and programming.

Full-time, part-time, and drop-in usage of the program are available by arrangement with the Extended Day Director or the Business Office.

Child Care on Professional and Conference Days

Child care is available on conference and teacher professional days for students in the Primary, Lower and Middle Schools. Enrollment is first come - first served. Please note that because of staffing requirements there are limited openings for children from our 18 month and two year-old classes. Children are supervised at the top of the hill in the Lower School library, Primary Extended Day rooms, and the Lower School Gym. A lunch should be packed for each participating child as per their normal school day. There is no pizza provided on professional or conference days that fall on a Friday.

Students who regularly use the Extended Day program on school days are not automatically enrolled in child care programs offered on Professional and Conference Days. The enrollment form below must be used for all children who are to be enrolled in child care. Please note, however, that children enrolled full time (M-F) in the extended day program can be enrolled in professional/conference day child care at no charge.

On Conference Days, parents are welcome to drop off their children to the child care group during the time they are conferencing with teachers at no charge. For ratio purposes, if parents plan to do so, you must contact the Extended Day Director ahead of time.
