Extended Care Program
Through its rhythm, the Extended Care Program enriches children of the school through a harmonious extension of their daily Waldorf curriculum, and provides them with a nurturing atmosphere incorporating the values of imagination and knowledge integral to Waldorf philosophy.
About the Program
Waldorf School of Pittsburgh offers an Extended Care Program welcoming children from Nursery through 6th Grade.*
Our afternoon begins with relaxed play and creative projects indoors, followed by a homemade snack. We then move outside for energetic play and games for up to one and a half hours and conclude the day inside with stories and free time. The program offers many seasonal crafts and music, and provides opportunities for older children to work on their homework.
Contracted or occasional use
Please see the Tuition & Fees page.
*Extended Care is not offered for children in the Little Friends Program.
