Extended Day Program

Your child’s day does not need to end at 12:30 p.m.! At San Juan del Sur Day School, we strive to support the diverse needs of our families. San Juan del Sur Extended Day is an after school program serving children age 2-5. The program is designed to support parents and families who require childcare after 12:30 pm and also for children seeking additional opportunities for play, socializing and fun! Our after school program provides meaningful and exciting experiences in a safe and caring environment.

Students will participate in:

  • A variety of age appropriate activities, including arts/crafts, cooking projects, science experiments, books, and puzzles
  • Outdoor playtime (weather permitting)
  • Snack-time (provided by SJdS DS)

All activities will take place at Finca las Nubes

*While we cannot guarantee that your child will nap in Extended Day, we will provide a quiet space for children needing a rest.

*Parents are responsible for sending children to school with sufficient clothing, diapers, and wipes for entire day.

Children participating in our Extended Day Program will depart school at 4:00 pm each day with our primary school students. Parents can pick up children at the bottom of Finca Las Nubes hill at 4:05 pm, at the park at 4:15 pm or in La Talanguera at 4:30 p.m.

Currently, our extended day program has room for up to 10 children max. Parents who choose our monthly-unlimited use option automatically reserve a daily space for each paid month. Daily drop-ins will be assessed based on remaining space.

We offer two different payment options for our after school program.

Monthly-Unlimited Use – $140.00 per month, per child

Unless otherwise notified by a parent, child will stay for Extended Day all full days that school is in session during the month that has been paid.   Payment is required in full, 5 days prior to start of new month.

Daily- $12/day per child

Students who are not signed up for unlimited use will automatically be billed at a daily rate. Invoices are generated each month and must be paid in full within 5 days or child will not be permitted to participate in future Extended Day activities. To reserve a space for the day, parents must contact Director Julie Speier and Director of Admissions, Sarah Fahey, via email, by 7:00 pm the day before. Space is on first come, first served basis. Julie or Sarah will confirm availability. If you do not hear back, assume that your child will be dismissed at 12:30.
