Extended Day (K - Grade 9)

Fay is pleased to offer Early Morning Care (7:00 - 7:40 a.m.) and Afternoon Care (3:00 - 6:00 p.m.) to all students in Kindergarten through grade nine free of charge starting this fall. Please read the following guidelines as you make your plans for the fall:

  • If you know that you will have regular, recurring childcare needs on a weekly basis, please sign up for the full term in advance.
  • If you need to schedule a single Morning Care or Afternoon Care session, please do so no less than three business days before the requested session.
  • We have extremely limited availability for emergency, drop-in spots and may not be able to honor all last-minute requests due to staffing limitations.
  • Our ability to staff Extended Care appropriately and provide this benefit free of charge relies on families honoring their registration commitments. Families who register for Extended Care but do not use their spot may jeopardize their ability to schedule their children for Extended Care in the future. 

About Extended Day

The Fay After School Extended Day program provides age specific care and enrichment for students in Kindergarten through grade nine, five days a week in the mornings and afternoons. Our fall, winter, and spring sessions follow the Fay School Academic Calendar, offering extended day options every day school is in session.

Our 2020-2021 dates are as follows:
Session I: 9/9/2020 - 11/19/2020
Session II: 12/1/2020 - 3/4/2021
Session III: 3/23/2021 - 6/10/2021

Early Morning Care

Fay offers Early Morning Care to all students in Kindergarten through grade nine. Early Morning Care takes place in the Primary Dining Commons from 7:00 to 7:40 a.m. each morning, and members of Fay's faculty and staff supervise students. At the conclusion of Early Morning Care at 7:40 a.m. each day, students in Kindergarten through grade two remain in the Primary Dining Commons; a teacher escorts students in grades three through nine to the Root Building where they are supervised in the Lower School vestibule; and Upper School students proceed to the Root Building.

Students in the Early Morning Care program should be dropped off at the Primary School entrance, where they will be met at the door by a faculty or staff member to confirm that they have completed their Magnus health attestation and to sanitize their hands.
