AM & PM Care (K - Grade 9)

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

  • 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 AM Care or PM 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 AM and PM Care appropriately and provide this benefit free of charge relies on families honoring their registration commitments. Families who register for AM and PM Care but do not use their spot may jeopardize their ability to schedule their children for care in the future. 

About AM & PM Care

The AM and PM Care 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.

AM Care (Kindergarten - Grade 9)

Fay offers AM Care to all students in Kindergarten through grade nine. AM 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 AM 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.
There will be no breakfast served during AM Care.

When registering, please be sure to select either the 3:00 - 4:30 p.m. session or the 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. session, not both.

PM Care - Supervised Study Hall (Grades 5-9) 

Students in grades five through nine (all of whom participate in athletics after school each day) may attend Supervised Study Hall following their athletics commitment until 6:00 p.m. Located in Root Library, Extended Fay Associates offer a quiet, supervised space for students to work on homework while waiting to get picked up at the end of their day.
