Extended Day

Hours of Operation: 2:45-5:45 PM Regular School Days | 843-402-4679

We all lead busy lives. Between working, maintaining a household, getting the chores done, running errands, and enjoying extra activities, it may not be possible to pick up your child by the end of the school day. Porter-Gaud offers a well-rounded Extended Day program for parents who need a little extra time in the afternoons.

The Extended Day staff seeks to provide a continuation of the school day with care, nurture, and safety in mind. The program offers students time to complete homework, enjoy various developmentally appropriate activities and eat snack. The children spend time outdoors every good weather day for physical activity and social time. Students enjoy board/card games, arts and crafts, and building and playsets. They enhance their imagination through play as well as communication skills through conversations across grade levels. They view an occasional movie with popcorn as a treat. Students enjoy the downtime the program provides them.

The Extended Day program offers several options for attendance. Parents can enroll children to regularly attend every day or three days a week. You can also choose to call or email the Lower School office any given day to send your child as a drop-in student.

If you are interested in enrolling your child in Extended Day, please download the document below and fill out the agreement for regular attendance. A completed application is not necessary for drop-in students.
