Before-school care is offered each weekday morning free of charge to all Lower School students. Every morning the Adventure Kids (AK) program runs from 7 a.m. to the start of school; on Wednesdays, when classes begin at 8:45 a.m., students may attend AK from 7 to 8:30 a.m. Before-school care is supervised by staff members who are committed to providing a fun, caring, and safe setting for students. The program is held in the Activity Room on the ground floor of the Goodrich Campus, with direct access to the playground and outdoor playing fields.
The after-school care is held each school day from the end of classes until 6 p.m. and is staffed by the same caring, skilled staff as the before-school care program. Less structured than the regular school day, the after-school AK program offers a variety of mixed-age group activities, snack time, and quiet time for independent reading, games, and homework. Outdoor play is encouraged for all children throughout the seasons, including sledding and ice skating on the school's playground ice rink. The program is held in the Activity Room on the ground floor of the Goodrich Campus, with direct access to the playground and outdoor playing fields. There is a fee for the Lower School after-school AK program; please inquire about rates.
Full-Day Care: On days when school is open but there are no classes (such as Parent/Teacher Conference Days or Faculty Professional Days), SPA offers fee-based, full-day care open to all Lower School students. The full-day Adventure Kids Program features field trips, outdoor play, craft projects, and other activities. The program is not in session on holidays or during school vacations.
