After School Programs

Princeton Day School offers several options for after school programs.

Stay & Play is a childcare program that begins immediately after school and ends at 6 p.m. Each day, attendees are provided a snack and spend time outdoors, weather permitting. Be sure to have your student come prepared with appropriate clothing for outdoor play.


After School Courses are a fun and convenient way for students to pursue a special interest beyond the offerings of the school curriculum. PDS students taking after school courses will meet with Stay & Play until their courses begin. Registration for After School Courses is done on a first received, first enrolled basis.


School Calendar / Inclement Weather
Please note that After School Courses are not offered on days school is closed or dismissed early and follows the school’s inclement weather policy. With sufficient enrollment, the Stay & Play program offers childcare on certain days when school is not in session.
