PLA Extended Day

Baker offers extended day programming for all students before and after school. The PLA program exemplifies progressive, best-practice methods and enrichment through an active, play-based approach.  PLA provides intellectually stimulating learning experiences for students on campus before and after the regular school day. We offer two sections:Early Childhood (PK –K) and Grades 1-8. Our program  goal supports the intellectual, physical, and social-emotional  well-being for our  multi-aged groups of children by:

  • Providing  a supportive atmosphere for learning and homework
  • Incorporating activities for intellectual stimulation
  • Building friendships and social connections
  • Teaching conflict resolution skills

PLA is available to students in PreK-8th grade directly following regular day dismissal. This fee-based program is offered until 6pm, PLA is also available on most Institute, Records, and Conference days. Parents may register online via their Ultracamp Account during each session during  PLA Registration. Contracts are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. The first PLA extended day will begin on the first day of school, Thursday,  August 29. Registration opens today, August 8.

Drop-in services, meant to be used in cases of emergency, are available as space permits. Due to the limited space we request that you login into your Ultracamp account to register for drop-ins at least one day in advance to secure a drop-in space. We understand that in cases of emergency, this is not always possible, and we will do our best to meet your family’s needs.

Details about  PLA contracts:

During registration families can choose which day(s) of the week their child (ren) will attend PLA. The contract guarantees childcare on days selected . and may not be swapped or exchanged. If you would like your student to attend PLA on a non-contracted day, your account will be charged  the drop-in rate.. Please note that drop-in spaces are limited.

  • If an Early Dismissal falls on your contracted PLA day, then your child will be automatically enrolled in half-day PLA  at no additional cost.
  • Families with a PLA contract receive a reduced rate and early access to registration for Full Day PLA.

If you have any questions about ASA courses or registration, please contact Hannah Biewlawski, Enrichment Activities Coordinator at hbielawski@bakerdemschool.org. If you have questions about PLA, please contact Colin Meyer, PLA Lead Teacher at cmeyer@bakerdemschool.org.
