Afterschool Program

Summit Afterschool strives to engage the whole child with a carefully designed schedule that gives students plenty of time to create, play, move and learn. Experienced staff members supervise all programs and diligently oversee the safety and well being of each child. Students have the chance to experience school with a little less structure and enjoy an extra dose of hands-on indoor/outdoor activities. There is a built-in home study time for older students and opportunities for each child to explore and develop his or her own interests. Parents and students can choose from a variety of program options to create the ideal schedule.

Programs

Beforeschool, 7 to 8 am (Eaglets - 9th Grade)

This program is designed to give students a positive start to the school day. The instructor is sensitive to the individual needs of the youngest to the oldest students as they make an early transition from home to school. The program is a relaxing place to make new friends, catch up on homework and enjoy the offerings of the main Afterschool room. Students are dismissed or escorted to their classrooms as the program comes to an end.

*Eaglets are students enrolled in our 3 year old program

Bathroom policy. All students enrolled in Afterschool must be potty trained. We request that children come to school in underwear – no diapers or pull-ups. If a child needs to be changed while at school, a parent or guardian may be asked to come to school to do so. 

Eaglet's Bridge 12:30 to 1:30 pm (Eaglets)

This hour-long program is designed to bridge the 12:30 pm Eaglet dismissal until 1:30 pm. This allows Eaglets to be picked up with JrK and K siblings. It also connects Eaglets with the extended Afterschool day. Children are supervised by the same Afterschool teachers each day as they spend time in familiar classrooms with age-appropriate toys and activities.

Early Childhood Afternoon, 1:30-3 pm (Eaglets, JrK and K)

Eaglets, Junior Kindergarten, and Kindergarten students start their afternoon in one of our main Afterschool rooms, rotating through various indoor activity stations. Children socialize and work together as they build, create, relax and play. This early afternoon program ends with a play period on the front playground followed by dismissal at 3 pm. Eaglets and Junior Kindergarten students who stay past 3 pm have a rest time on mats during the second half of this program.

Early Childhood Full Day, 1:30 to 5:45 pm (Eaglets, JrK and K)

This option includes the features of our Early Childhood Afternoon program and continues until the end of the day. Eaglets, Junior Kindergarten, and Kindergarten students start their afternoon in one of our main Afterschool rooms, rotating through various indoor activity stations. Children socialize and work together as they build, create, relax and play. They also spend time enjoying all that the front playground has to offer- music station, sand boxes, climbing wall and much more. Eaglets and Junior Kindergarten students who stay past 3 pm have a rest time. At 3 pm these children enjoy a story time before splitting up into teacher-led activity groups including art, food exploration and games. The program ends with more time on the playground or in the gym. At the end of the week, students enjoy Fun Friday with special activities and fun themes.

Lower School Full Day, 3 to 5:45 pm (1st - 5th Grade)

At the 3pm dismissal children are divided into three different groups and Afterschool locations based on grade level for indoor/outdoor play and snack. Our 2nd-5th graders have a 30-minute study time before splitting up into three activity groups led by Afterschool teachers focusing on tinkering, cooking and games/sports. Our younger students (Eaglets - 1st) enjoy a story time before splitting up in their own teacher-led activity groups including art, food exploration and games. The program ends with more time on the playground or in the gym. At the end of the week, students enjoy Fun Friday with special events and no study time.

Three-Thirty Express, 3 to 3:30 pm (Eaglets - 5th Grade)

This program is designed for Lower School students who await the Upper School dismissal time. The Three-Thirty Express is a helpful service to parents who prefer one pick-up time for Lower and Upper School students. At 3 pm, children gather in a designated room to relax, socialize or work on homework before heading to the 3:30 pm car ferry. Eaglets, JrK and K students are eligible for this program, but rather than moving them to the Three-Thirty Express room, they remain with their Afternoon group until the 3:30 dismissal.

Extended Day Program, 3:30 to 5:45 pm (6th - 9th Grade)

This is a supervised drop-in only Afterschool Program for Upper School students (6th- 9th Grade) who are not involved in school sponsored activities. At dismissal time, students report to the second floor library for check-in and snack. Students have plenty of time to study, socialize and attend sporting events. This is the perfect place for athletes on seasonal break or students waiting for a late ride home. Students can join this program throughout the afternoon as clubs and sports come to an end. Parents can sign-out students by calling or visiting the main Afterschool room.
