Extended Day

The Extended Day program is designed to support working families. At Harford Day, early morning drop-off is available for all students beginning at 7:15 AM in the library.

The after school Extended Day Program is available for all students until 6:00 PM on each regular school day and most early dismissal days throughout the school year. This service is available by contract or on an as-needed, drop-in basis for an hourly fee. Students are divided by age to allow for a developmentally appropriate program. Harford Day is fortunate to have dedicated staff members who have worked with our program for a number of years as well as enthusiastic aides.
