Extended Care Programs

Camellia Waldorf School offers Morning Care for students in kindergarten through 8th grade and aftercare for preschool children through 8th graders. These programs are available on a contracted or drop-in basis on school days. Vacation daycare for preschool children through 8th graders is also available.

The purpose of the aftercare program is to provide a nurturing, homelike environment, consistent with the ideals of Waldorf education. The children are grouped by age, and a rhythm is maintained of quiet times, storytelling, outdoor creative play, snack, crafts, and seasonal activities. Provision is also made for older students to do homework.

Parents/guardians agree that if a child is not picked up within 10 minutes of dismissal time, he or she will be automatically signed into the aftercare program at the parent’s expense, at the drop-in rate starting at the child’s dismissal time.
