Extended Care is an auxiliary program that is available to all Goshen students Monday through Friday from 7:45 a.m. until 6 p.m. Whether it’s buzzing with preschoolers enjoying a day off from morning preschool, kindergartners and preschoolers lunching together, or lower schoolers having an after-school snack before heading out to the playground, Extended Care is a terrific option for parents who wish to extend their child’s day.
Inspired by a philosophy that is teacher-directed and child-inspired, Extended Care teachers strive to provide a warm, nurturing environment that meets a variety of ages and interests. Free play is always an option, but children may also choose to participate in planned activities, such as art, science, cooking/baking, gardening and building. Children will get to work with a variety of materials, explore the world around them, and maybe even get a little messy in their important work!
There’s something for everyone in Extended Care. And if something is missing, you can bet teachers will make it happen quickly!
