Golden Pond School offers Stay & Play, quality year-round care from 7:30am-6:00pm with stress-free snow days!
Stay & Play childcare is available to children enrolled in our 2 day, 3 day and 5 day morning preschool programs from ages 2-5. These preschool students enjoy their engaging morning preschool curriculum and continue on with Stay & Play where they have recess, lunch, nap/quiet time, afternoon snack, independent and teacher lead activities. The fun begins as early as 7:30am (for breakfast) with pick up as late as 6:00pm. Stay & Play follows the snow closure policies of the Federal Government – giving you stress-free snow days!
Teresa Wolfe, Extended Day Program Director, says: “The Stay & Play program offers Full-Day care for working families while enhancing the unique and essential qualities that make Golden Pond School so special. It is a delight to get to know the children more fully and to see their love of learning through joyful, play based activities. Don’t be surprised when you come to pick up your child and they want to Stay & Play!”
An integral part of our Stay & Play program is the strength and expertise of the teachers. Our teachers are highly trained and accomplished in the field of Early Childhood Education. We have a low teacher turnover rate that creates structure and stability for our students. Parents stay connected daily through Tadpoles, paperless childcare daily reports for the iPhone and iPad. These classrooms are referred to as the Koalas and Kangaroos.
