After School Programming at CDS
Carrollwood Day School offers a robust menu of after school programming for CDS students at the Early Childhood Campus and grades 1 - 8 on the Bearss Avenue campus. Additional fees for these programs are billed to the family's school FACT account.
Extended Day Programs
Both campuses offer an extended day program until 6:00 pm daily as well as weekly special interest classes and clubs. The ECC also provides before school care beginning at 7:00 am. During a child's stay in the after school extended day programs, he/she will be able to participate in supervised indoor and outdoor play and quiet time. Students will also be served a snack and older students will have the option to work on homework. Children may stay for before or after school care occasionally or daily, and reservations are not required.
At both campuses, CDS uses KidCheck® to provide an online check in/check out system that improves the safety and tracking of our children. KidCheck® will also enhance our communication, security and our administration of our extended day programs. Each family that intends to utilize the before care or after care program must create an account prior to the first day of attendance. Returning families with a KidCheck account do not need to create a new account. Please follow the simple instructions on this form to create your KidCheck account today.
After School Activities
Learning does not stop at the end of the school day. Students can choose from a variety of after-school programs designed to create enthusiasm for learning while building creativity, imagination and positive social skills. These programs are offered by CDS staff and other professionals who want to share their talent and passion for their field.
Programs vary throughout the years and have included Art, Bridge, Chess, Ceramics, Club Invention, Forensics, Homework Lab, Intramural Sports, Jewelry Making, Gardening Club, Painting, Photography, Robotics, and Scrabble. The ECC offered dance lessons and soccer.
