Extended Day

Early Childhood Extended Day Options

The Waldorf School of New Orleans nurtures Early Childhood families by providing additional schedules to accommodate various family needs. EC Extended Care Options must be approved by class teachers after a parent-teacher consultation regarding what is appropriate for the child.

Nursery Extended Day

  • Afternoon Program: 1:00 to 3:00 (12:30- 2:00 on Thursdays). After a full morning of work and play, the Afternoon Program provides our youngest children with a quiet space to rest in a nurturing and cozy environment.

Kindergarten Extended Day

  • Afternoon Program:  1:00 to 3:00 (12:30 to 2:00 on Thursdays). After a busy morning of work and play, the Afternoon Program balances and complements the morning rhythm by providing children with a quiet space to relax and rest in a warm and cozy environment.  After an extended lunch period, the children help tidy up the room and prepare their nap mats. Stories, lullabies, and back rubs encourage relaxation. Some children fall asleep, while others rest quietly, allowing the rich images of their active mornings to settle.


Please note that no afternoon program is available on half-days, and depending on parade schedules may not be available before Uptown parades during the Carnival Season due to street blockage.
