Extended Care

Nurturing your child. Supporting your family.

Early Childhood Before Care, 7:45 a.m. - 8:15 a.m. 

The Waldorf School of Philadelphia recognizes the needs of working families. For families in need of additional support, we offer early childhood extended care for children in our mixed-age kindergartens starting at 7:45 am - 8:15 am at no additional expense.  Parents are asked to accompany their child to the Early Childhood building and settle their items into their child's cubby area, prior to dropping their child at the before care classroom. For questions relating to before or aftercare please contact the school office.

Early Childhood After Care

Extended Care is available from dismissal until 5:45 p.m. for all children ages 2 - 6. The program includes indoor and outdoor free play, a healthy snack, and small activities.  In order to provide adequate staffing, daily drop-ins are limited in number. As such, we recommend 24 hours notice to secure your child’s reservation. Registration for extended care is through the Parent Portal. If you have questions relating to our extended care program, contact Maggie Davis davism@phillywaldorf.com
