Extended School Care is a non-profit organization that provides quality before and after school care for children in kindergarten through sixth grade. Operated by the Shrewsbury Public Schools, the program is fully funded through parent fees.

More about Extended Day:
Our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment where students can engage in enrichment activities, participate in recreational programming and socialize with their peers. Time is also set aside each day for students to work on their homework. Our experienced and caring staff members create fun and innovative programming for students of all ages, interests and abilities. We focus on building positive relationships, developing social skills, strengthening self-esteem, and encouraging independence, responsibility and good decision-making. Our programs are located within the school building at Beal, Coolidge, Floral, Paton, Spring and Sherwood.


FAQs:

Program Hours

Before School: 7:00AM until the start of the school day (no before school program at Sherwood Middle School)

Holidays and Vacation Weeks

Extended School Care follows the Shrewsbury Public School calendar. It opens on the first day of school and closes on the last. We are closed for all school holidays, professional days and vacation weeks.

Early Release Days - 2021-2022

Five early release days are scheduled for school year 2021-2022.  Extended day is open from the early dismissal until 6pm. All of these dates fall on a Tuesday. If your child is registered for Tuesdays, the additional coverage on early release days is included in your monthly tuition.  In the past, we charged an additional $25 fee to defray the cost of special programming and the additional hours for staff members.  This year, we are dividing the annual cost of the early release days ($125 per student who is enrolled on Tuesdays) and dividing that by the 10 months of the school year.  Monthly tuition for families enrolled on Tuesdays will increase by $12.50.  This provides the convenience of consistent monthly billing

Tuition

Annual tuition is based on the 180-day school calendar and is divided into 10 equal monthly payments for convenience. Monthly rates do not vary based on the number of school days per month. We are unable to give credit for absences from the program.

Tuition payment is due by the first of the month. Our preferred method of payment through your online Extended Day account (Eleyo)  but you may also pay by check or money order.  Please make the check payable to Shrewsbury Public Schools and mail or deliver to 28 Sherwood Ave.
