Stay At Fay After School Program

After School Program at Fay

Stay at Fay is our aftercare program, allowing Fay students to stay on campus after school. Stay at Fay is designed to be a play date every day of the week. Our day is filled with a variety of activities including arts and crafts, games, books, music, outdoor activities, and more! We schedule our day with a routine of active and quiet periods of play, both indoors and outdoors. The program is open for students from the end of the school day until 6:00pm.

  • Stay at Fay registration is held online through the Extended Day Registration Module which can be accessed through My Portal using the Extended Day Registration button in the Resources tab, or directly through our Extended Day Registration Module at
  • Please see below for a range of costs for Stay at Fay for Fall 2021. Registration for the Fall Semester (August- December) begins May 20, 2021. Our Stay at Fay program does not operate during school holidays. 
  • Pricing for the program varies and is designed to allow siblings to be picked up from school at the same time, even when they are dismissed from school or activities at different times. Parents must choose which day(s) of the week their child will attend Stay at Fay before the semester begins. You can register for as many as five days a week or as few as one day a week. We also offer childcare for parents who need care on an occasional basis, through our drop-in component of Stay at Fay. Parents must register at least twenty-four hours in advance to use the drop-in component of the program, and drop-in care is billed monthly. 
  • The prices listed below are for one day of every week for the Fall Semester. For example, for the Fall Semester, registration for Wednesday would include every Wednesday from August 18, 2021, until we dismiss for Winter Break. 
  • If a family is in need of childcare for five days each week, these prices would be multiplied by five and that total would be their semester cost. For example, childcare Monday–Friday (five days a week) for one child from 2:30–3:15pm would cost $800 ($160 multiplied by five days) for the semester. 
STAY AT FAY FOREST DAYSKids playing outside during Stay at Fay

Stay at Fay Forest Days are opportunities for Stay at Fay students to have free play in the forest supervised by the Stay at Fay Staff and School Nurse. Students will attend once a month in grade-level groups (Primary, Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary). We love giving our Stay at Fay students the opportunity to explore our beautiful Fay Forest with their own imagination leading the way!
