Extended Day Options (LS)

The Friends' Central Lower School Extended Day Program (EDP) seeks to create a settled, supervised environment for Lower School students who need to arrive early or stay on campus beyond the end of the school day. Extended Day provides each child with extra enrichment, scholarship, creativity, and most importantly, fun during our before-school and after-school hours. Each day, there are planned activities, as well as time for free play and homework.
