Extended Day Program

Westside School believes that all students can succeed in school with the right combination of quality programs, focused resources and community support Increasingly, research has shown that participation in out-of-school-time (EDP) programs can lead to improvements in youth’s educational outcomes (e.g., academic achievement, school behavior, attitudes toward school, attendance and educational expectations); enhance social and emotional development (e.g., self-esteem, positive social behavior); and reduce the likelihood that they will engage in risk-taking behavior.

Westside School offers an inclusive, multi-aged Extended Day Program, designed to engage interest of all kinds, so that every child can do something they truly enjoy! The Extended Day Team is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment both physically and emotionally for before and after school, where children can learn, grow, make friends, and explore new interests all while having fun!

The after school program begins at dismissal time and ends at 5:00pm for Preschool/PreK and 5:30pm for K-8th Grade. Each afternoon will include time for outdoor play, snacks (provided by Westside), homework/study hall, and free choice activities. At this time, since we are unable to mix cohorts, enrichment classes will not be offered.

Monthly extended day care is available by printing and completing the contract. Payment is made through ACH, which will debit from your account on the first of each month.
