For families who juggle many responsibilities, we offer childcare and enrichment programs to extend the experiential learning of the school day. Morning and after care is available to all students age 3 through grade 8. Morning care is available 7:00 am - 8:00 am and after care 3:10 pm - 6:00 pm on school days. Students are separated into age appropriate groups and participate in both indoor and outdoor activities that support and extend their school day. Brownell Talbot’s extended care program is run through BT’s licensed childcare facility. Fees are based on enrollment and not attendance. Due to our licensing requirements, drop-ins and part-time care are not available.
