School Hours and Options 

We have flexible scheduling so you can mix and match options to go along with your child's core class in order to best meet the needs your family.  

Morning "Sunshine Club" Before School Care:  8:00-9:00 a.m.  

Core School Day (all students attend during this time):  9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Afternoon "Playground Pals" Extended Day:  2:00-4:30 p.m.  

 

Sunshine Club 8:00-9:00

Children play with puzzles, play-doh, and other toys or they go outside to play before school starts.  They often sit and finish their breakfast first!

 

Enrichment Programs 12:00-2:00

Enrichment Programs are immediately following daily school hours and are from 12:00-2:00.  Students have lunch and then one of our special rotating enrichment programs:  STEAM, Kinderfit, Music and Movement, or Art.  On Friday we have a special pizza day for lunch.

STEAM early childhood curriculum encourages learning while tapping into children's natural interests in the following areas: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.  We build, garden, and more!

Kinderfit encourages use of both large and small gross motor skills while engaging children in fun physical fitness activities.  Kids use hoops, scooters, and more!

Preschool Music is a developmentally appropriate music class that includes instruments and movement.

Art with The Smiling Easel guides children in art activities to encourage creativity and engage children's artistic sides.  Children also learn a little art history!

 

Extended Day (Playground Pals) 2:00-4:30

Extended Day is offered every afternoon from 2:00 until 4:30.  Children will have the opportunity to play outdoors and will also cook, sing songs, work on crafts, and participate in science activities.  Children who need to nap will have the opportunity during this time; non-nappers have a little quiet time with books or puzzles during the first part of the Extended Day time.  

 

A Note from our Director

At Memorial Presbyterian Day School, we believe in giving children the opportunity to grow, explore, and learn at their own pace. We facilitate the growth of the whole child:  intellectual/academic, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual.  We realize that each child is unique; we look to complement individual needs and work to reach each child's next step. At PDS, we have high curriculum standards and flexible hours to further enrich your child's day. We have highly qualified, experienced, and loving teachers with small classroom sizes so all children receive the attention they need. I look forward to hearing from you!
