Before- & After-School Program
The sense of neighborhood created on the campus from 3 to 6 p.m. is one that makes the Catlin Gabel After-School Program an excellent choice for many families. With teachers and teaching assistants to plan and supervise art projects, cooking capers, sports events, computer fun, and organized games, students have plenty to do. Because Catlin Gabel students come from all over the metro area, the program makes it possible for peers to participate in activities together just as they would as neighbors. Before-school coverage, Lower School enrichment classes, and all-day field trips on some no-school days are also part of this program.
Before School: Beginning & Lower School Students
Before-School care is available between 7:15 and 8:15 a.m. for Beginning and Lower School students at no extra cost to families.
Extended Day: Preschool Students
Extended Day for preschool students is from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Extended Day teachers work closely with the Beginning School to provide a program that supports and supplements their school day. Students are welcomed to the program with a quiet story and time to rest, followed by choices such as art & science projects, dramatic play in the playhouse, cooperative games, nature walks on campus, and outdoor play. A snack is served every day.
