The East Bay Waldorf School recognizes the needs of working families and offers an Extended Care Program to support children and families from Preschool through 8th grade.
Aftercare is available every school day with the exception of the last day of school. Please note the schedule follows the school calendar regarding holidays, school closures and professional days.
Change in After-Care Billing
Beginning November 2019, After Care tuition will be due the month after the services have been rendered on your scheduled due date for tuition (the 5th or the 20th). For example, November After Care tuition will now be due on either December 5th or 20th, depending on your contract. This will enable EBWS more time to effectively bill the families and students that utilize our Drop- In services and accommodate families whose needs change from month to month.
Additionally, the late pick up fee is increasing, effective December 1st, to $35 and will be due at the time of pick-up. Please make checks payable to East Bay Waldorf School.
We offer the following Smart Tuition payments options for After Care:
- Automatic payments on your debit card or credit card
- Online payments
- Mobile App payments
- Phone payments
- Mailing a check or money order
Alternatively, you can still make payments in-house in the Business Office with a check or money order. Paypal and credit cards will no longer be accepted because of the high percentage of fees that EBWS incurs nor will we accept cash.
The contracted rate is $11/hour
The drop-in rate is available on a limited basis at $16/hour.
Please refer to the Aftercare Program Policy 2019 for a detailed breakdown of our program policies and fees.
Drop-In Aftercare needs to be booked on the day of through the Drop-In Registration Form, online by 11:00 am.
Extended care is available for all Grades students from dismissal until 5:30 each day. The program includes a healthy snack, indoor and outdoor free-play, guided artistic activities and games, and time for homework.
Early Childhood Aftercare
Early childhood aftercare is available for both preschool and kindergarten students. The aftercare program for early childhood begins with a resting time, followed by a healthy snack and free-play (both indoors and out). Typical activities include cooking and other practical tasks consistent with our early childhood approach, including laundry, polishing, woodworking.
Preschool dismisses at 12:45 pm and Kindergarten dismisses at 1:00 pm.
Aftercare for both programs goes until 5:30 pm.
