Before & After School

We understand Thacher parent schedules don’t always match those of their children.

To help you manage your time to best suit your child’s needs, we offer a blend of structured and self-directed activities both before and after school.

Our Programs

Early-morning care is available from 7 a.m. until the beginning of your child’s classroom day. During this low-key time, children typically play games, work with crafts, build with blocks or read. At the end of this period, a staff member will escort young children to their respective classrooms while the older, more independent students go to their classrooms on their own.

The Aftercare Program begins at the end of the regular school day and has two components. The first component, which lasts until 4:45 p.m., consists of special, structured programs, clubs, sports activities, outside playtime, and reading (or being read to). The second, from 4:45 to 6:00 p.m., is more low-key with opportunities for reading, relaxing, or physical activity. The school will provide a nutritious snack to each child in the Aftercare Program.
