Extended Day Program

The Meridian School offers an inclusive, multi-aged Extended Day program, designed to engage interests of all kinds so that every child finds something enjoyable! The Extended Day program supports Meridian’s school curriculum and Cares expectations through theme-based special guests and field trips, and small-group Responsive Classroom activities; and by maintaining schoolwide behavioral expectations. Meridian’s Extended Day team is committed to providing a before- and after-school environment that is physically and emotionally safe, where children can learn, grow, make friends, explore new interests, and have fun!
