An independent school in Middletown, DE for students in Preschool through Grade 8

Extended Care

Our Extended Care program is open to all students who can stay at St. Anne’s before and after the regular school day. This program encourages children to develop friendships across age groups and experience activities that complement the philosophy and value system of the school. The Extended Care program includes supervised play, arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor games, a snack, and homework time, as appropriate.

Students may be enrolled hourly from 7:00-7:30am and 3:15-6:00pm each week day. To encourage prompt arrival, there is no cost for supervised care from 7:30-8:00am each morning.

In addition to the Extended Care program, students also participate in a wide variety of extracurricular activities after school, including interscholastic sports, enriching programs, and clubs run by teachers and parent volunteers. Some of these have included Odyssey of the Mind, Girls on the Run, Improv and Acting, Spanish Club, and LEGO Club. Private instrumental lessons are also available after school. Students may “drop-in” to Extended Care before or after any of these activities, as needed. 

Whether you decide to contract in extended care or drop in occasionally, please fill out the Extended Care Registration included with your student's enrollment contract.
