Extended Care Program

Canterbury Extended Care Options offer a stimulating and safe environment for our students in a convenient setting that supports our parents’ needs. Play and learning are integrated to promote intellectual curiosity and creativity throughout our programs. There are several complementary programs at Canterbury School offering care for a full day or a portion thereof. You may pick up your child at the end of any one of these programs. All of the following programs are for Early Childhood and Kindergarten Prep students. Students may participate in extended care programs only on days they are in school.

Studio Time

This enrichment program is 9 -11 a.m. for children who attend afternoon school and 1-3 p.m. for children who attend morning school.
