Sharing And Growth

Brimmer’s Extended Day Program provides children with a warm, cheerful, and relaxed atmosphere after school. The program provides a supportive play environment, creative activities, and a quiet time to study. It is a true extension of Brimmer as it follows the School’s mission of promoting collaboration and a sense of personal responsibility.
