CWS offers after-school care for both Grade School and Early Childhood children Monday through Friday during the school year. Both the Grade School and the Early Childhood aftercare teachers work closely with the CWS faculty to ensure that this program is harmonious with the main school day and with the Waldorf curriculum. Aftercare is designed to be a relaxing and fun end to the children’s days at school.

The Early Childhood program is primarily play-oriented, children enjoy an afternoon snack, and then go outdoors on the playground, or engage in imaginative play in the Kindergarten classroom.

The Grade School aftercare program begins in a classroom where there is time for quiet homework or study and a snack, and then moves outside for games and play. This year, Grade School aftercare will also include seasonal projects and community service.


Early Childhood – 3:00 – 5:30 PM
Grade School – 3:25 – 5:30PM

How to Register

Advance Registration

Complete the annual or monthly contracts below and return to the Business Office to have your child placed on the roster for any amount of days. You may register in advance by the year or the month. Advance registration guarantees your child’s space in aftercare.


Drop-in aftercare is also available. Please note that we have staff-to-child ratio limits for the number of children in aftercare each day, so drop-ins are taken in a first-come-first-serve fashion. If the roster for the day is already full the Main Office staff will notify you. To register, call or email the Main Office ​before 2:30 PM​. If your child is still at school and we have not been contacted, CWS Staff will call you or your emergency contacts to arrange for pick up.
