Extended Day

The Potomac School’s Extended Day program is a licensed childcare program for students in kindergarten through Grade 8, from 3:15-6:00 pm. The afternoon consists of two snacks, homework and relaxation (including outdoor play weather permitting).

The Extended Day program provides a supervised space for the students to work, play, explore, create, and make new friendships after the school day is over.

The Extended Day program is available only on days when school is in session. There is no Extended Day on scheduled early closing days. In cases of weather emergencies, participating students must be picked up immediately.
