Full & Extended Day

In addition to the Half-Day Early Childhood program, both EWS Nursery and Kindergarten now offer a Full-Day program until 3:00pm and an Extended-Day program until 5:30pm. As the 1/2 Day children say goodbye to their classmates at 12:30pm, the Full-Day and Extended-Day children lay their cushions, pillows, and blankets on the floor and prepare their own ‘room’ out of play stands and silk cloths. The teacher reads a story and then watches over them as the children lie on their beds for a nap – sometimes nodding off to sleep and sometimes just lying quietly looking through a book. After nap, the children go outside for free play until the Full-Day children are picked up at 3pm by a parent or caregiver. Extended-Day children have indoor play, a prepared snack, and outdoor play until 5:30pm when they are picked up by a parent or caregiver.
