CNS Afternoon Program
Our Afternoon Program is designed for children who are ready for a longer day.
Children bring their lunches from home and come together from the three morning classrooms to form the afternoon group. For Fall 2021, CNS is offering two days of Lunch and Extended Afternoon programming (Tuesdays and Wednesdays), of which we are committed to running mostly outdoors. For the 2022-2023 school year, we anticipate offering 3 days of add-on afternoon programming (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays).
Lunch Bunch: Lunch time is followed by a relaxed period for interactions with friends and materials ending at 1:00 p.m.
Afternoon Program: Children enjoy lunch and an extended time outdoors with nature-based curriculum. Various explorations, activities, and investigations are offered in our outdoor classroom spaces. Dismissal is at 2:00 p.m.
The afternoon programs have their own teachers, working with other CNS staff. The ratio is no more than six children to one teacher.
