Extended Day Program
Pembroke Hill offers the Extended Day Program for families who require care after the conclusion of the regular school day for students from early years through eighth grade. Under the guidance of PHS teachers, students complete homework assignments, read, play and participate in after school clubs and activities. The program provides a safe, nurturing place that encompasses a wide variety of after-school activities for students.
Extended Day care is available until 6 p.m. through the academic school year. Our program also offers children continuity of care by providing childcare on many days that school is not in session. The Extended Day staff takes safety seriously and is trained in first-aid and CPR. Given the active nature of some of the activities, occasionally, a bump or bruise results. Please be assured we will contact you with anything more than a minor injury or illness. Drop-in care is available based on our staffing.
Parents of early childhood and lower school students must sign students out of Extended Day to ensure the safety of students and for our record-keeping process. The sign-out sheet will always be with a staff member.

The Auxiliary Program offers after-school enrichment classes to students in grades K-5. These classes are designed to engage students in activities with their peers that include a variety of topics. Classes are offered in two sessions during the school year and typically meet once a week for eight weeks.
Enrollment is open to all students, and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Students that do not have an Extended Day contract on the day the class meets will be charged an additional fee. Please note, space is limited in each class.

During Parent/Teacher conferences, Extended Day offers optional childcare, from 7:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., for students in early years through fifth grade. While these are not normal school days, the Extended Day staff does work collaboratively with our resource teachers to provide students a variety of age-appropriate activities, including story-time, music, games, art and more. Lunch is provided.
If your child has an Extended Day contract to stay past 3 p.m., on that day of the week, the fee is included in the cost of your Extended Day contract. Students who do not have a contract will be billed on a drop-in basis ($15 per hour), up to a maximum of $85. This fee will be charged to your business office account. You may register your child for the full day, or choose only to register for care during your conference time. Charges will be incurred for pick-up after 6 p.m.
Cancellations must be made by the designated date to avoid charges for prearranged staffing. Reservations made after the announced deadline and drop-ins will incur an additional fee of $20 per day.
