Registration for this session is no longer available
Stay and Play begins at 11:30 a.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday when school is in session. Stay and Play is in the PreK classroom and is staffed at a 10:1 student to teacher ratio. Maintaining consistency is valuable for the transitioning PreK students, and the staffing of this extended day program is designed with that need in mind. We strongly encourage families to use Stay and Play in a consistent way; choose the days your child will attend per the trimester to help them build a predictable routine and expectation for his/her school week.

PreK students who participate in Stay and Play will remain in their classroom for a hot lunch, enjoy a recess time, story time, nap time, and open play. Following lunch, PreK students will transition to a quiet rest time. This is a period for children to nap or rest after a busy morning. Each child will be provided with a child-sized cot to rest on in the afternoon. These cots will be set 2 feet apart during naptime. Each family is responsible for sending a blanket and small pillow with your child on the first day of every week. On the last day of every week, the cots will be stripped and the sheets sent out to be washed and the pillow and blanket sent home for washing. The cots themselves will be sanitized each week. Please send your child’s bedding in a small tote that can be used to transport linens back and forth each week. In addition to bedding, your child may bring one SMALL STUFFED toy with him/her to keep on his/her individual cot.

Stay and Play ends at 2:45 p.m. At this time, PreK students can be picked up between 2:45-3:00 p.m. or transition to AfterCare if signed up separately. Stay and Play is available every day that school is in session, unless notified otherwise, with the exception of Harvest Festivals, beginning Tuesday, September 10, 2018, and runs through Thursday, June 6, 2019.
