Extra Curricular Programs

Never-ending Learning Fun!

Extra curricular programs are designed to further enhance a child’s learning and development, while giving them the opportunity to explore an interest further. Kindred Spirits Day School is offering after school programs to help make Extra Curricular programs more affordable and convenient, while complimenting what students are already learning at school. Photos from our Winter Session can be found below.


For the upcoming Spring Session, we are offering four (4) programs for a variety of age groups and interests. Families are welcomed to sign-up for multiple programs or none at all, as Extra Curricular activities are 100% optional. We are also aiming to add an extra curricular program in the area of Athletics; however, we are still in the process of securing a gymnasium. If you are interested in Athletics, please reach out to Melinda via email.


Families who partake in after care will not be charged for after care on the day of an Extra Curricular program you are registered for.  After care will only be charged on days of the week where the student is not in an Extra Curricular program.


For any questions or concerns about the Extra Curricular program offering, registration process or ideas for new programs, please reach out to Melinda via email. Your feedback will help us to continue to improve the services we provide, and ensure we meet the unique needs of each student.
