Enrichment & Extended Day Programs
Canterbury’s Enrichment and Extended Day Programs offer additional educational and social opportunities to complement a student’s school day schedule.
At Canterbury School, our Enrichment Programs are founded on project-based learning principles, with the belief that – under the guidance of a teacher – children learn best through hands-on experiences. They explore art processes and investigate nature through observation and experimentation. Students also discover special subjects.
Curricularly, lessons are designed around a specific art, science or other topic, and academic skills and knowledge are integrated and expanded through those experiences.
- Enrichment Programs are offered daily, 8:15 to 11 a.m. and 12:15 to 3 p.m., for Canterbury Kids, Cavaliers and Junior Kindergarten students. They're also offered daily, 1:15 to 3 p.m., for Kindergarten Prep students.
- Lunch Bunch is offered daily, 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., for all students.
We are committed to supporting parents, helping to balance work and family. That's why we offer Early Bird (before-school) Care, as well as Above and Beyond Care (after-school care) for our Early Childhood students. These extended day programs focus on bringing out the best in every student – combining active games with structured and unstructured play, quiet time and creativity.
- Early Bird Care is offered Monday through Friday, 7:30 to 8:15 a.m., for Canterbury Kids, Cavaliers and Junior Kindergarten students. It's also offered Monday through Friday, 7:30 to 8 a.m., for Kindergarten Prep students.
- Above and Beyond Care is offered Monday through Thursday, 3 to 6 p.m., and Fridays, 3 to 5:30 p.m., for all students.
Registration for all Enrichment and Extended Day Programming is offered on a quarterly basis. Families must pay for programming upon registration via credit card or FACTS payment plan. Only ABC: Above and Beyond Care incurs charges on an hourly basis.
Online registration will be available on Aug. 1 for Quarter 1 of the 2018-19 school year.
