Our Extended Day Programs offer a convenient option for your child to arrive at school as early as 8:00 a.m. and stay as late as 4:30 p.m. on the day(s) he or she attends Toddlers, Twos, Preschool, or Kindergarten classes, Monday through Friday.

Children in the Extended Day Programs are given the flexibility to choose their own activities, engage in special interests and classroom-center activities, and play on the playground.  In the afternoon, children are provided a snack.

The Extended Day programs are also available on a drop-in basis, as space allows, and require a reservation made in advance, by emailing Jacynda Griego at jgriego@smesdallas.org.

Friday Fun Days are offered every Friday during the school year for children in our Toddlers & Twos and PreK3 4-Day classes.  This program is an option for parents to bring their child to school for an additional day.  Children will have time to play, do art, participate in sensory activities, and have a snack.  The times are 8:45-11:45 with the option to add the Afternoon Extended Day, until 4:30. Parents may select the Fridays they would like to sign up for.

Due to the limited number of spaces available, we are asking families not to cancel their reservations. Your account will be billed through FACTS for any days you reserve and charges will not be refunded.

Please note an important policy regarding SMES Extended Day programs:

PreK 3 and PreK 4 children must be enrolled in an Enrichment (12-2:30 p.m.) before adding Extended Day Afternoons (2:30-4:30).

Children enrolled in Extended Day Afternoons may stay as late as 4:30 p.m.  For anyone picking up a child past 4:30 p.m., a $5 per minute late fee per child will be assessed and billed through the parent’s FACTS account.  Late pick-ups are closely monitored.  Children MUST be picked up NO LATER THAN 4:30 p.m.  If a child is picked up late more than four (4) times in one semester, the child will be removed from the Extended Day program without a refund.
