Extended Day, HOLIDAY CARE and Enrichment Offerings
St. Richard’s Episcopal School is committed to providing a variety of extended day and enrichment opportunities that expand and enrich student life outside the classroom.
Many, if not the majority, of our students remain at SRES beyond the end of the school day or arrive before the traditional start times. Extended day provides students a safe, comfortable, and familiar environment and opportunities for individual growth that are congruent with the school’s mission of instilling knowledge and values for a lifetime. Enrichment opportunities, such as private piano and karate lessons, are also available.
The program includes clubs and service opportunities that add to the overall educational experience. Programs are divided into two sections, one for Early Childhood and another for Lower and Middle Divisions.
- Morning care is offered from 7-8 a.m. for $5 per day.
- Aftercare is offered from 3:30 - 6:00 p.m. for $10 per day.
- Full-time early childhood tuition includes the cost of before and aftercare.
Early Childhood Extended Day
The Early Childhood extended day program is organized by day of the week and activity. The students rotate through stations that consist of an activity, a snack, and play time. On Mondays and Wednesdays, the focus is art-based, with students creating a designated craft as their activity. Tuesdays are for “tasting,” and the students cook foods/treats at an age-appropriate level. Thursdays are reserved for exposure to various activities such as swimming, tennis, dance, art. Every Friday, students participate in a variety of group games.
Lower and Middle Divisions Extended Day
Students are involved in less-structured activities, which include a snack, time to play on the playground or in the gymnasium, library/study opportunity, and clubs.
St. Richard's carefully chooses a wide variety of after-school opportunities that engage the diverse interests of our students. These enrichment activities involve contracts with outside sources and change each semester. Some examples: French, art and play, Crouching Tigers, gymnastics, karate, yoga, Harry Potter, and creative writing with Professor Watermelon.
Additional enrichment opportunities, such as private piano lessons, are also available for students at all grade levels.
