Joy. Enrichment. Safety.

Morning Care & After Care

exuberant-aftercare

Fun, Nurturing and Supportive Environment

The Extended Day Program (EDP) offers K–8 morning care, after care, and enrichment activities (band, orchestra, upper school sports, and after-school clubs).

EDP provides positive, safe spaces for engaging and enriching experiences for our BPC students. We prioritize using outdoor spaces and we separate students into grade-level bands for snack and restroom use.

After the school day, our children love to relax on the sunny deck with a healthy snack before games and free play on the playground, Oasis, or play structure on the lower school yard.

A quiet dedicated space is also available daily for upper school students (library deck) and lower school students (library) to focus on homework assignments with support from an EDP teacher. These spaces are also utilized for quiet afternoon reading sessions, too.

Building Self-Awareness, While Recharging Their Batteries

We create space and time for students to decide for themselves how to spend their down time. Organized games are always an option, but if a child would rather draw or read or sit quietly with a friend, we're on board. Children today live very full lives, so we embrace any opportunity where they can do their own thing.

“It’s a godsend to drop my son at orchestra on my way to work and to have him enjoying Maker Club or Filmmaking or getting his homework done before I collect him at 5:30.”
