Extended Day at CDS

At CDS, we understand that the school day doesn’t exactly align with a typical work day. Therefore, we make sure that students have enriching opportunities before and after school as well. CDS’s extended day programming is designed to be easy to use and enjoyable for students and parents alike.

  • Before-hours care runs from 7-8 a.m. and is free of charge.
  • After-hours care runs from 3:30-6 p.m. and is $15/day.

Afternoon snacks are provided in the after-hours program. CDS students look forward to the opportunity to play board games, use the playground and gym for games, and enjoy the library. For older children with homework, the program provides time and a quiet space to complete school projects.

In addition, CDS provides an Off-Day Camp program, available on most days when school is not in session. Fees for these camps are $35 for half-day camp to $65 for full-day camp. Parents may register for the camps online via our Parent Portal.
