Davidson Academy respects the school-age child's freedom to control this portion of his or her day. Child-directed choice allows children to spend time in a less structured environment doing the things they enjoy. It is an important aspect of school-age care.

Children play outside each day unless it is extremely cold (below 34 degrees) or rainy. Children should come to school dressed appropriately.

Study hall is open each day for children to work on homework assignments. Extended Care staff remind and encourage children to work on assignments. However, it is not possible for all children to use this time doing homework. Usually, it is more successful for families to determine homework policies and enforce them. Outside play cannot be withheld for homework purposes.

It is our policy that children do not bring toys to Extended Care.

Holiday Care

Holiday Care registration is offered for all students two weeks prior to each school holiday.
