After-School Opportunities

Country Day School offers several programs after the regular school day ends as a convenience to families and to provide extra time for children to interact socially in a supervised environment.

A variety of programs meet the needs and interests of a broad range of students and families.

Offerings include supervised play and homework time, athletics, arts, academics and more.

Stay & Play (JPK-K)

Stay & Play serves JPK, SPK and kindergarten students whose parents want their children to remain at school beyond the length of the regular school day. Stay & Play students participate in outdoor and indoor play, arts and crafts, games, reading, snack time and other playtime activities.

Stay & Play is offered in two sessions, 12-1:30 p.m. and 1:30-3:30 p.m. The fee is $15 per session. JPK and SPK students, whose school day ends at noon, can participate in one session until 1:30 p.m. or both sessions until 3:30 p.m. Kindergarten students, whose school day ends at 1:30 p.m., can participate in one session until 3:30 p.m.
