The Extended Day (8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.) program is for children who are ready for an extension of the morning work cycle (typically five and six year-olds or upon approval of the teacher). This program most closely resembles Kindergarten in other schools; however, the MSOW curriculum exceeds that traditional definition.
The lead classroom teacher will discuss with the student’s parents when the student is ready to begin Extended Day. The afternoon work period gives the students an opportunity to work as a smaller community and allows the lead teacher to give longer, more involved lessons. The children are able to cover material in further depth. The afternoon also includes lunch and large motor activity as well as Specials (Art, Music and Physical Education). The primary focus is on work that will help them transition into an elementary program. Lunches are brought from home, and the school provides milk and water as beverage choices during lunch.
Enrollment to the Children’s House Extended Day program is dependent on teacher approval, child readiness, and/or availability. Please contact Michelle Krauska via email or by phone at (262) 547-2545. Please refer to Enrollment & Forms for proper documentation.
