Getting Started

Complement your child’s education journey with education that goes beyond traditional hours.

Our Extended Day programs have evolved over the years to include a variety of flexible childcare and enrichment options available both before and after school hours. These programs are available to our Elementary, Lower School and YCC students; Middle School after-school programs, though optional, are considered part of the school day.

Current WMS families should log into the Family Hub to access Extended Day registration forms.
