The Extended Day program provides a safe, supervised and interactive environment for Summit students during the transition time between the end of the school day and home. It serves students in Montessori through Middle School, beginning at age 18 months through sixth grade. Matching the mission of our school, this program is designed to be an extension of the school day. The activities are fun, and reinforce each child’s development in the five pillars of our school. An overall goal for the program is for children to practice skills of grace and courtesy as well as develop and refine social skills of cooperation and problem-solving.
All children staying for the Extended Day program have exercise and play time either outdoor (weather permitting) or inside the gym. A healthy snack is provided. Children then have a quiet story time followed by a period of music and movement. After that, children may participate in a series of activity areas called “World Play” that are age and developmentally appropriate. Ideally, over the period of a week, children will participate in all of the World Play areas equally.
We respectfully request that electronic games/ equipment remain at home or in your child’s backpack.
