Extended Care
Alabama Waldorf School's Extended Care program is available to both the preschool and the elementary students.  To meet the needs of our busy parents, we provide a comfortable and wholesome environment for students from 7:15am -5:30pm. 

For the preschool, which includes nursery and kindergarten, AWS offers an early afternoon extended care from 12:30p.m. to 3p.m.  During this time, the children nap or rest, depending on their needs.  

AWS also offers a late afternoon extended care option for preschool age children and elementary students that runs from 3p.m. to 5:30p.m.  Both programs include free play outside, weather permitting, and time for a healthy snack. The preschool students then enjoy more outside play, reading, or inside games until their parents arrive.  The elementary students have a quiet time, which provides the older children an opportunity to focus on any assignments they may have.

AWS also offers an early morning extended care for all ages.  This program begins at 7:15 a.m. and transitions smoothly into the students' core program, which begins at 8:15am.

Both parents and children benefit from AWS's extended care program.  The program provides a comfortable environment and consistent rhythm for your child's early morning and afternoon.  This program also ensures ample opportunity for social interaction and a healthy alternative to after-school TV viewing and video gaming.  

AWS offers the extended care program on a contractual or a "drop-in" basis, based on your need.  However, availability may be limited on any given day, especially Wednesdays when the full Faculty and Staff meet weekly.  Costs vary.  Call (205) 592-0541 for more information.
