We realize some family schedules require the need for an earlier drop off or later pick up of their student. Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor offers both before- and after-school options to help busy families.
Lower School Beforecare Program
This daily drop-in program is available to PreK-8 students from 7:30 am until the start-of-school in the Lower School Commons area. Students may draw, participate in art projects, play board games or puzzles, or engage in reading or conversation. No registration is required, but students should be signed in.
Fee: $2.50 per quarter-hour
Lower School Aftercare Program
Our Aftercare Program is available at the Lower School from 3:15 pm for Early Childhood and from 3:30 pm for Grades 1-8 until 5 pm. We ask parents to register their students in advance, up until 24 hours prior to care, by filling out a monthly registration form, but we can also accommodate drop-in care. The Aftercare program is more relaxed than the school day and much of the time will be spent outside, weather permitting.
Hours: 3:15 pm for Early Childhood/3:30 pm for Grades 1-8
Contact: Peggy Wilson, Lower School Coordinator
Fees: $8.50 per hour/per family with 24-hour notice
$9.50 per hour/per family for drop-in care
The first hour, no matter the length of time spent in aftercare, will be charged as a full hour. After this, families are billed by the quarter hour.
A late fee of $1.00/minute will be charged after 5:05 pm.
Registration forms will be added when Extended Care is reopened.
The high school building will be open and supervised until 6 pm daily. HS students are welcome to stay during that time to work on homework, read or study quietly, practice instruments or attend school extracurricular clubs or events. Students are expected to be generally quiet and focused on their activities. If individual students cannot meet the expectations for this time, they will be asked to leave the school building by 3:30 pm.
