Early Childhood Program
For the youngest Pembroke Hill students, the early childhood school offers several after-school programs: Lunch Bunchers, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Lunch Bunchers Plus, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:10 p.m.; and Extended Day Preschool Pals (for all early childhood school children), from 3 to 6 p.m. Each program offers children continuity of care with many of the same teachers who they have in the morning while in a familiar environment. Age-appropriate activities through a balanced schedule of small and large group settings, with quiet and active play, is offered.
The goal of the Extended Day Preschool Pals is to offer children a program that allows them to de-stress from their day. We provide age-appropriate activities through a balanced schedule of small and large groups, quiet and active play in a multi-aged setting. This schedule that allows a great deal of flexibility with lots of free play both inside and outside. While there are activities planned, children have the option to participate or not. Sometimes, children may not want to do the activity, but would rather look at books quietly or just sit in teachers’ laps. But whatever the children choose, there is always a lot of tender, loving care. Drop-in care is available based on our staffing.
