After School Programs


Academy at HPPDS extends the school day to 1:45 for children in PreK3 and Toddler 4 classes who are not napping and are fully toilet trained. It is offered 4 days a week, and families may choose as many or as few days as desired. Academy is offered in two sessions, August-December and January-May. Cost is $25/day, billed by the semester.

In Academy, children have lunch with their peers, followed by time to rest and unwind with stories and quiet activities. Teachers plan fun, hands-on, thematic activities for each day, and children get additional time for outdoor play.
