Extended Day

At Lighthouse School, we imaginatively engage the whole child -- head, heart and hand -- in the creative and challenging act of learning. The Lighthouse School Extended Day program not only extends the school’s ability to provide quality programming; it is also an extension of the philosophy and creative approach of the Lighthouse School program.


  • Small, often multi-age groups provide intimate and trusting settings and enable instructors to work and spend time with individual children.
  • The social curriculum of Lighthouse School is actively utilized to teach valuable lessons in empathy, cooperation, and conflict resolution.
  • The warm and inviting Lighthouse classrooms provide children with a comfortable and supportive environment and a lively extension of home. Older and younger children have opportunities to work and play together.
  • The Extended Day program is simply structured to include hands-on activities, artistic projects and imaginative play indoors and out. Older children will also have built in time to focus on homework with the support of the instructor.




The Extended Day Program runs Mondays through Fridays (except on holidays/faculty work days) from 2:30 p.m. through 4:30 p.m..
