Our Extended Day Program at Mustard Seed School teaches each child to know and care for their community and world. We’ve crafted a program where students can unwind, play, do homework, and receive enrichment activities after school–all in a peaceful, loving environment. We want our students who stay longer at school to have an added investment and even more connection to our community. Keep the joy alive!
Please note: the Extended Day Program is on hold for the 2020-21 school year due to the pandemic.
When Extended Day is in session, students will have the opportunity to go to the park after school, weather permitting. There are also lots of enrichment activities planned for the year: tending a garden, cooking, STEM lessons, movement classes, making art, going to the library, and more.
PK3 students have the option of Extended Day to 3PM.
PK4-5th grade students have the option of Extended Day to 6 PM.
In 2020/2021, PK-5 day to 5th grade is $4,200 for a 5-day commitment & $2,900 for the 3-day commitment
Extended Day runs from 11:40 AM-3PM for PK3 students.
Extended Day runs from 3-6 PM for PK4-5th grade students.
We anticipate having more options available in 2021-22. Please check back.
Enrichment activities are built into the program, so you will not have to pay an additional cost. If you sign your child up for music lessons at the school, you will need to pay for the music lessons. We’re happy to make sure that your child makes it to their lesson.
The Extended Day Program uses the Rivers Classroom on the second floor as a home base, but students will also go to the park and explore other spaces in the school. You will even see artwork created by the Extended Day students displayed around the school. We hope that our Extended Day students will get to know the school in a different way and feel a deeper connection and sense of belonging.
The Extended Day Program has its own blog to keep you updated on what’s happening after school. You’ll also be hearing from our Extended Day Coordinator, Nancy Aberg.
Our staff for the Extended Day Program are all teachers or paraprofessionals who have worked in Mustard Seed School classrooms, so they maintain the same culture and procedures we have in the classroom. Your child will experience complete continuity in their experience of school and Extended Day.
Mustard Seed School students are used to working in multi-grade groupings, so we find that the mixed ages work really well in the Extended Day Program. In fact, it’s become quite a feature! We’re seeing friendships grow across grade levels as students work together and help one another.
