Extended Day


The extended day program provides Walden families care for their children before and after the regular school day. The extended day program utilizes a variety of organized activities, seasonal crafts, and creative play. Children have the freedom to choose their own activities. During this time, homework supervision is provided for the elementary and middle school children.

For extended day students, it is necessary to complete and return the extended day application packet. This packet includes The Walden School extended day application forms as well as the Department of Public Welfare (DPW) forms. Regulations set forth by the DPW require that of these forms be completed and on file in the school office.

The extended day care program runs from 7:30 AM until the start of school and then runs after school from 3:00PM until 5:30 PM, and the rates are as follows:

Contract option- for families who need before and/or after school care of a specific number of days per week and full coverage each day.  The option is billed semi-annually on October 1 and January 15.  The rate is $7.00 an hour.*

Ad-hoc basis- for families who need before/ after care on an as-needed basis.  The rate is $7.75 per hour.*


*Above rates are for families who have completed the required paperwork for the Extended Day program.
