Extended Care

Extended Care is inspired by a philosophy that is teacher-directed and child-inspired. Here, children enjoy social time and fun activities for curious learners and have time to settle in before morning Preschool, while parents enjoy the convenience of an early drop-off, late pickup, or day-off care. Need to get an older child to school on time or to an afternoon doctor's appointment? Need to skip car line? Want to get to the gym for your favorite exercise class? Extended Care is here for you!

We will continue to provide the kind of flexible care that Goshen families have come to count on, but this year we are adding a few new daily programs that we think will add to the overall fun.

Browse Extended Care's offerings for the second semester in the list below, and click on the links to print out the necessary forms. (We are no longer using electronic forms.) Completed forms directed to the attention of Extended Care can be delivered either by backpack or through the main office. Links to all forms will also be available in the Goshen Weekly.

PLEASE NOTE: We ask that parents make every effort to complete the reservation forms with as much advance notice as possible. This helps the staff plan accordingly! As always, you can add, drop, or change a reservation with a quick email to extendedcare@goshenfriends.org, or call Extended Care directly at 610-696-8937.
