Our preschool program offers morning care from 7:00 to 8:00 am and our preschool afternoon care runs from 3:35  to 6:00 pm. The preschool extended day program follows the rules and regulations for licensing and is separate from the K-8 extended day program. Only a certain number of students can be enrolled based on the adults in the room. For this licensing reason, drop-in extended day is not an option for our Preschool program. The preschool extended day program enrollment is on a first come first serve basis. Priority will be given to families who turn in their contracts first. Once the program is full, families will be placed on a waitlist and will be notified when a spot is available.
Northern Light School offers an Extended Day Program that provides morning care and/or afternoon care for K-8 students. Our Morning Extended Care Program is offered from 7:00 to 8:00 am and our Afternoon Extended Care Program runs from 3:35 to 6:00 pm each day (2:15 to 6:00 pm on Wednesdays).  In the afternoon, Northern Light partners with The People's Conservatory and Get Empowered! to offer high-quality arts instruction for students.
