Extension/After School

"It's more than just after school care, it really is an extension of the thoughtful way OES educates children. I see so many moments where my child is given space to explore and make her own inquiries within projects." Parent

Extension offers a full complement of fun and educational activities that students can attend directly after school from 3-6 p.m. and full day programming on LS conference days. Please e-mail us with any questions at extension@oes.edu.

Lower School Extension (After School)

Extension is designed to provide a positive, nurturing after school experience for your student, extending the OES Vision and Mission through our out-of-school time programs. Within our flexibly structured program, your child will experience inquiry based projects, recreational and enrichment activities, free time, and special activities such as cooking, sports, and art. For this more relaxed part of the day, children are under the watchful eye and nurturing guidance of our instructors who will foster and support independence, cooperation, and problem solving strategies in a safe and caring environment.

We strive to maintain an enthusiastic and skilled staff. Parental interaction with the staff enhances our ability to serve your child's needs and to plan our program for everyone's benefit. Parents are encouraged to share concerns, suggestions, and observations with staff, by note, by phone call, or by dropping in during a portion of Extension time. We appreciate your trust in us to provide a positive and meaningful experience for your student.

Middle School Extension (After School)

The academic school day ends at 3:05 p.m. At this time, students can take the bus home, get picked up in the carpool line, head to athletics practice, or stay in the Middle School for our Extension Program.

Middle School Extension provides a free, drop-in after school program from 3:05–6:00 p.m. Students sign-in, get a snack and are invited to explore many after-school options at no cost to families. We provide a variety of activities, clubs and study spaces to allow students to self-select their learning environment.

For an additional cost, students may sign up for private music lessons (see below) or after school classes.
