Extended Day

The warm, nurturing environment that Spartanburg Day School students receive in the classroom every day continues into the Extended Day program.
Our dedicated after school staff thoughtfully plan a variety of activities - from crafts to story time to developmental games and art projects. There's plenty of opportunity for outdoor play, as well as structured time for homework.

Through the Extended Day program, students also have the opportunity to register for a variety of optional after school activities, including soccer, piano, tennis, culinary camp and more.

Extended Day begins at 2:30 p.m. for our preschool students and is available until 6 p.m. for students from 2 years to eighth grade.
