Extended Care Program

  • Extended care option

    Families wishing to wish to have a full-day experience (including the morning or afternoon preschool program) may request extended care at an additional cost of $210 per month.  This monthly fee is not eligible for any fee assistance waivers. The hours available for extended care are Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Students will have both breakfast and lunch and will be led in age-appropriate activities by district instructional staff members. Extended care is NOT available on Wednesday. 

    At this time, the extended care option is not able to take DCF childcare payments. 


    Applying for extended care

    Extended care slots are limited; here’s how you can request a slot for your child:

    1. Complete this Extended Day Program Application.
    2. You will be notified whether you received a slot, or not, within five to seven business days.
    3. If you are notified that you received a slot, you will need to confirm and reserve it with a non-refundable payment of $210. This will count for your first month's extended care payment.  Your child does not have a confirmed spot in the program until this fee has been paid.  If payment is not made within seven business days, your child's slot will be forfeited. 

    Depending on whether your child is in the morning or afternoon session, he/she will have time to eat breakfast or lunch as part of the preschool curriculum. Your child will have the choice to purchase a meal from the cafeteria at West using their lunch account or bring a meal (or snack) from home each day. We will provide more information about depositing in your child’s account in August.
