Recognizing that learning does not stop at the end of the academic day, BCD offers students and families a wide range of after-school options designed to encourage a sense of community after school hours and provide opportunities for exploration and pursuing personal interests. Most after-school activities end at 4:30 p.m. A late bus is available to families in South County and Pittsfield.
After-School Enrichment is open to all students in Kindergarten through Grade 4, and provides a variety of options taught by qualified professional instructors. Enrichment programs may include such offerings as Movie-Making, Nature Explorers, Clay Workshop, Yoga, and Chess Club. New offerings are introduced every trimester.
Extended Day is available to students of all ages, Monday through Friday, from dismissal until as late as 5:30 p.m. It is designed to give parents some flexibility in their schedule for those days that their student does not participate in an after-school activity or needs to stay after school. Program includes outdoor play, structured games, art projects, special activities, study hall for older students, and a snack.
After-School Music is offered on Wednesday afternoons for those students looking to learn a new instrument or continue their private lessons here on BCD’s campus after school.
