Extended Day

At Tatnall, the campus is always buzzing with the myriad activities happening year-round. Whether you’re looking for supervised care before or after school or extra opportunities for your child to socialize, have fun, and get help with homework, Extended Day is a wonderful resource for Tatnall families.

All Early Childhood, Lower,  and Middle School students who remain on campus after carline will be transferred to their respective Extended Day groups until they are picked up from school. Every member of the Extended Day staff strives to provide a warm, relaxed, and joyful environment at each of three locations: the Myers Building (Early Childhood), the Sedgely Building (Lower School), and the Beekley Building (Middle School).

To provide greater flexibility, we offer three packages, each with a level of customization, to give students in Early Childhood through Grade 8 with after-school scheduling choices. Students can enroll for either three-or five-day service—and two pickup times. These plans, when combined with Summer Camp, offer a seamless year.
