Extended Day Program

The John R. Briggs Ashburnham Westminster Regional School District Extended Day Program provides safe and convenient childcare before and after school, most professional development days and February and April vacation weeks and is open to all students from JRB. Supervised activities, games, crafts, indoor and outdoor play are offered each day, weather permitting. All students are also provided the opportunity to do their homework. The program is housed in the Briggs cafeteria, making it
a convenient place for students to also take advantage of other before and after school-based activities; such as Scouting, music lessons, etc. We also have use of the gym, library and tech lab throughout the week. Scheduling is very flexible and can meet most families’ needs.

The program is financially self-sustaining through the collection of parent fees. Cost is determined by each child's schedule - an hourly fee is charged for all time reserved and is payable either weekly or monthly. A yearly registration fee is required with discounts available for families with more than two children. Periodic enrichment courses are also offered through Extended Day. All students must be pre-registered in the program before attending.

A separate program is offered each summer, offering weekly themes, swimming, and exciting field trips. Students do not have to attend the school year program in order to take part in the summer program. Please contact Ext. Day directly at 978-827-4701 for further information.
