Extended Care

The Extended Care Program is a service of The Colorado Springs School, Children’s School Division and is intended to accommodate the needs of families with busy schedules. Extended Care is offered to CSS parents of students in PreKindergarten through 5th Grade. Middle School students must be supervised after school through sports practices or Homework Heaven in the library.


Knowledge of the whereabouts of students at all times is paramount to student safety. Therefore, students who are on campus before 7:50 a.m. or after 3:15 p.m. are required to be in the Extended Care Program.

CSS is proud to provide supervision from faculty/staff who know your children well. The adults staffing Extended Care are current in Standard Precautions/CPR/First Aid certification and their understanding of RULER (emotional and social intelligence strategies used in the classroom), as well as the CSS method of communicating with students and delivering a program.

For the 2020-2021 school year, Afternoon Extended Care (3:15 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.) will be available in limited capacity students. Reservations must be made for the entire semester. Drop-ins will not be possible in order to maximize cohorting.

Fees are as follows:

  • 3:15 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. will be $12 per day
  • 3:15 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. will be $20 per day

You will not need to specify the time you will be picking up when you register, you will be billed based on usage. Because of the limited nature, if you register for a day, we ask that you please utilize care on that day. No-shows will be charged and continued no-shows will result in the loss of extended care use in consideration of the other community members who may need the care.

Daily Snack

Due to a wide range of dietary needs and or restrictions, parents must provide a health daily snack for their child.
