Extended Day

Extended Day is a program designed as an extension of the school day to accommodate each family’s after-school needs. The program offers a balanced combination of recreation and enrichment activities in addition to time for reading and homework. Our Extended Day staff provides a warm and relaxed environment at each location: The Myers Building (Early Childhood), The Sedgely Building (Lower School), and the Beekley Building (Middle School).
 
Whether you’re looking for supervised care after school or an extra opportunity for your child to have fun, get help with homework, or participate in enrichment programs, Extended Day is a wonderful resource for Tatnall families.
 
When paired with A Tatnall Summer, Extended Day provides a seamless year of care and programming with the people and approaches you trust.
