Growth

Our Extended Day Program provides children with a warm, cheerful, supportive, and relaxed atmosphere that fosters sharing and cooperation. Extended Day is a true extension of Brimmer as it follows the School’s mission of promoting collaboration and a sense of personal responsibility. It runs until 5:30 p.m. from opening day to the last day of school. The schedule also includes supervised homework time in a quiet study area.
