Extended Day Program Resources

February 7, 2011

Please find attached Extended Day resource materials that have been developed to assist boards in developing extended day programs and to support the distribution of information to parents regarding these programs.

The following package includes:

  • An extended day brochure template for providing preliminary information, such as base daily fees, to parents;
  • A survey template that can be used to collect information on extended day programs from parents;
  • A handbook template that boards can use to develop parent/guardian handbooks for parents once programs have been planned and finalized; and
  • An extended day checklist to assist boards in planning extended day programs, drawing on the experiences and effective practices from extended day programs to date and child care.

Thank you for your support.
