Aftercare & Extended Care

The Afternoon Programs at the Waldorf School of Garden City are designed for students of all ages and are led by experienced Waldorf teachers. For the youngest children, the program creates a warm, home-like atmosphere. For older students, a quiet space to complete homework and receive guidance is provided as well as supervised recreation time. In addition, parents may arrange for their children to receive individual tutoring services.

After a long school day, our goal is to provide a nurturing and home-like atmosphere for the children who stay for our Extended Day program. Children in nursery & mixed-age kindergarten gather in one of the mixed-age kindergarten classrooms, while the first, second, and third graders gather in the library. The program includes both indoor and outdoor play, as weather permits. A healthy mid-afternoon snack is provided.
