After-School Care Program
The Waldorf School of Pittsburgh offers an After-School Care Program welcoming children from Nursery through 8th Grade. The program runs from 3 pm to 6 pm, Monday through Friday, and is available on either a contracted or occasional use basis.
Our afternoon begins with relaxed play and creative projects indoors, followed by a homemade snack. We then move outside for energetic play and games for up to one and a half hours and conclude the day inside with stories and free time. The program offers many seasonal crafts and music, and provides opportunities for older children to work on their homework.
Through its rhythm, the After-School Care program enriches children of the school through a harmonious extension of their daily Waldorf curriculum, and provides them with a nurturing atmosphere incorporating the values of imagination and knowledge integral to Waldorf philosophy.
