The after-school yard is the “neighborhood” in our community, providing opportunities for outdoor free play with fellow K-6 students.

In addition to free play, childcare supervisors engage children in recreational games, board games, and crafts. On the occasional rainy day, childcare moves into the kindergarten classrooms for indoor play and movies.

A supervised homework center is available for children who are in grades 1-6 in the childcare program. A snack is provided after 3 pm for children in childcare. Afternoon childcare is closed during school holidays and vacations, in addition to the Halloween Parade, Christmas Chapel, Grandparents' + Special Friends' Day, and K-5 Closing Chapel.
