Half Day Preschool Extensions

A half day preschooler has a variety of ways to extend their day in additional to core hours of 8:45 am – 12 pm.  The day can start as early as 7:45 am with beforecare, and go as late as 12:45 pm with lunch bunch.  Please see the descriptions below:

Beforecare (7:45 – 8:50 am)

Beforecare is offered in the preschool classroom with the preschool teacher or aide.  It is an hour with light unstructured activities appropriate for 3 and 4 year olds who are still warming up to their day.  No meals are provided unless sent by the parent.

Lunch Bunch (12 pm – 12:45 pm)

This extension activity runs from 12 pm – 12:45 pm.  This is a great time for students who want to spend extra time with their classmates socializing, eating lunch and playing in the gym.   Students’ lunch is brought from home, and the lunch period is supervised by staff and teachers.   Parents can sign up their child for a semester of lunch bunch at a time; August-January and February – June.  There is nominal fee.

After School Enrichment (after 2:45 pm)

After-School Enrichment classes and activities are available and open to all boys and girls from preschool through 8th grade, and are not exclusive to students enrolled at GNCS.  Enrichment activities rotate between seasons and offerings are announced a few weeks before the programs begin. Some of the activities include felting, George’s Gymnastics, baking, science crafts, wreath making, Spanish, frisbee, cartoon drawing and more.  For students who participate in both after school enrichment and aftercare, teachers and aftercare staff will transition students between the classrooms.

Aftercare (between 2:45 – 6 pm, based on arrangements)

Before and aftercare are offered at the school in the aftercare classroom. Rates are negotiated with before and after-care provider(s). See contact information below.
