Extended Day Program

Our Philosophy


Play is essential to a child’s academic and social-emotional development. Everyone has an innate playfulness and curiosity that contributes to learning. The Meridian School offers an Extended Day program that supports the academic program (homework help, class room news, Global Studies), school climate (Responsive Classroom, small group activities), and social activities (community service, special events) in our community in a safe, inclusive, and playful environment. The Meridian School Extended Day program balances teacher – led and child-centered activities, and enrichment classes that enables students the opportunity to create, learn, engage, and have fun. The Extended Day program strives to be an active component of the academic program where students have an opportunity to use their extended time at The Meridian School to enrich their on-campus experience.


Extended Day runs from 7:00 to 8:30AM and from 3:00 to 6:00PM and always includes a nutritious snack for students.

Please read our Extended Day Parent handbook 2015-16 and return a signed copy of the agreement in the Extended Day Room #1 South Annex.
