Extended Day Programs

Early Birds

Early Birds provides supervision for Friends School Haverford students from 7:15 a.m. until 8:00 a.m. at no charge. Parents may drop off their children on a regular or occasional basis. Bus riders who arrive before 8:00 a.m. join early birds. For delayed school openings, the Early Bird Program will also be delayed the same amount of time.

Extended Day

For an additional fee, parents may enroll their children in the Extended Day program from 3:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. each school day. Time is allowed for snacks, outside play, creative activities, and homework. Extended Day is contracted at the beginning of the school year, but is also available on an occasional, drop-in basis for $30 per day. Consult the Director of Extended Day Programs for additional details. Please send a written request or call the School office for your child to drop into the Extended Day program.

Vacation Care / Child Care

Child care is available on many days when our school is closed. Please see the Weekly Update for sign-up information with pricing details or contact the Director of Extended Day Programs.
