Our year-round Extended Day childcare program is a home away from home for children after school. Kids are welcomed each day by their caregivers with snack and a quiet activity, then on to homework and group play. Conveniently located at the Nantucket Elementary School, the Extended Day program utilizes the NES clusters, gymnasium and playground to help keep kids active and busy in fun and engaging activities every afternoon.
Registration for the 2019 – 2020 school year starts June 3, 2019. Registration forms will be available May 1, 2019. Applications may be dropped off at our mid-island location – Nantucket Elementary School at 30 Surfside Road starting June 3, 2019. The office is open Monday – Friday, 8:00 – 4:00. There is no online registration for this program. Please contact Elyse Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
