Brimmer’s After-School Program provides children with a warm, cheerful, and relaxed atmosphere that fosters sharing and cooperation. The program provides a supportive play environment, creative activities, and a quiet time to study. The Extended Day Program is a true extension of Brimmer as it follows the School’s mission of promoting collaboration and a sense of personal responsibility.
The Extended Day Program begins at the end of the academic day and operates weekdays until 5:30 p.m. from opening day to the last day of the school year in June. For children in Pre-K through grade 2 the daily schedule includes a snack and supervised playtime either on the playground or inside. Children in grades 3 through 5 participate in indoor/outdoor play and a choice of age-appropriate indoor activities. In addition, the schedule includes supervised homework time in a quiet study area.
The program is designed to offer all the students choices. The older students can find the appropriate balance between doing homework and having fun with friends. The students particularly enjoy being in the multi-age groups. Throughout the year, elective activities are offered through the After School Clubs Program
for an additional fee. The Club program changes with the semester but generally includes chess, cooking, karate, yoga, a technology club, newspaper club, and more! Students in the Extended Day Program can also take advantage of the After-School Music Program
