Extended Day Program
Our Extended Day Program reflects our philosophy that children thrive in a safe, structured, and nurturing environment. Our program for students in Pre-K to 8 operates on the same Quaker values and high expectations as our classrooms, allowing children a seamless transition into after school hours. Under the guidance of our experienced and caring teachers, students have fun learning, growing, and building lasting friendships with kids of all ages from our school community.
The Extended Day Program takes place at The NEST. Students have use of the outdoor spaces (field, waterworks, mud kitchen) and both floors of the IDEA Lab. In bad weather, the students will have time to play in the gym.

Parents may enroll their children for five days a week at a slightly discounted price of $3258.00. In addition, children who are enrolled five days a week may enroll in any Specialty Club free of charge.

Payment may be made in the following ways:
1 payment of $3258.00
2 payments of $1629.00
9 payments of $362.00
Those families who would like flexible care after school (between 1 and 4 days per week) pay a $21.00 drop in fee per day.
We encourage FFS students to enroll in Specialty Clubs, even if they do not participate in the Extended Day Program. Specialty Clubs take place every weekday from 3:15 to 4:15. Students who participate in Specialty Clubs have a short time for free play before the start of club. Students who do not stay for the Extended Day Program at the end of clubs should be picked up at 4:15 in front of the Meeting House.
Specialty Clubs run for 8 weeks for a cost of approximately $120.00.
Students can come to school for a day filled with fun while school is closed for parent conferences and teacher in-service days. Activities include science experiments, arts and crafts, stories, engineering projects, indoor and outdoor sports and games, cooking, drama activities, and trips to the park. Snacks are provided, but each child should bring her/his own lunch.
Enrichment Camp takes place from 8:00am to 3:00pm on full days and 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm on half days. Extended Day follows until 6:00 pm.
Students are charged a fee of $50.00 per day.
