Extended Day

Hamlin’s Extended Day program is more than just an afterschool program; it’s a community. From the earliest of birds greeted by Ms. Yeung’s smiling face at 7:00 a.m., to the loyal crew of hide-and-seekers deterred only by our 6:00 p.m. closing time, Extended Day provides Hamlin girls with a warm and welcoming environment before and after school. We offer a balance of structured and independent activities so that girls can choose how they spend their time outside of the classroom.

Because seventy percent of Hamlin families include two working parents, Hamlin has a strong commitment to supporting our busy families outside of the normal school day. That’s why Extended Day is intentional about offering a variety of choices to meet the diverse needs and interests of our students and families. Optional activities like After School Academy and Music Academy provide students with endless opportunities to develop new hobbies and skills, make friends outside of their grade level, and receive phenomenal instruction from local artists, entrepreneurs, and specialists, all while taking advantage of small class sizes. In a given afternoon, a student may challenge a classmate to a chess match, finger knit a scarf, code a game on their iPad, practice playing the piano, or simply relish a quiet reading corner. Our Extended Day community strives to create a fun and inviting atmosphere for all students to enjoy.

Girls can sign themselves in each day on an as-needed basis. Morning care runs from 7:00 a.m. to 7:50 a.m. each day with no additional cost.
  • Hub (Lower School Extended Day)

    Hub is so named due to its definition: the center of activity or interest. We are located right at the center of school on Floor 1 of Stanwood Hall, and offer daily care for K-4 students. We provide all students with snack, supervised playtime on the lair, a daily creative activity, and study hall space for girls needing to complete homework. Hub is a joyful and inviting place for girls to spend their afternoon!
  • After 3 (Middle School Extended Day)

    Need a place to wait for a music lesson or athletic practice? Have homework to do? Want to participate in a fun project or game? After 3 is the place to be. We provide a combination of free time to catch up with your friends, supervised time to get your homework done, and daily creative activities to choose from.
  • Music Academy

    Hamlin Music Academy provides on-campus instrument lessons, from flute to guitar to violin and more! Students work one-on-one with our lovely teachers for 30- or 60-minute lessons. The year culminates in a beautiful recital in the Great Hall.
  • After School Academy

    Also known as ASA, we offer many exciting enrichment classes that emphasize the arts and movement. Example courses include robotics, sewing, and climbing. Class sizes are limited to ensure one-on-one attention, and that students collaborate and develop friendships with girls in other grades. We use a trimester system that gives students several opportunities to try out something new throughout the year. Look for registration openings in August, December, and February.

  • Vacation Camp

    Looking for childcare during school vacations? We offer a great day camp experience when school is out on break. Campers participate in fun games on campus, and travel each afternoon to explore the city. Each camp will have a specific theme, so please check our website to see where and what we will be up to.
