Before and After School

Chicago Friends School offers before-school care from 7:30–8:30 a.m. and after-school care from 3:15–6:00 p.m.

Before- and after-school care is supervised free time. The time can be spent in play in our gymnasium, creative play, reading, game playing, or homework completion.


Families can choose from three plans, depending on their needs.

  • Hourly drop-in: Families may use for before- or after-school care as needed. An hourly rate is charged.
  • Regular: Families have regular before- or after-school needs that exceed four hours per week per child. They pay a reduced hourly rate with a minimum charge of four hours per week.
  • Unlimited: Families have unlimited access to before- or after-school care for a flat fee.

After School Enrichment

In addition to child care, we offer a variety of after school enrichment programs for an additional cost. In 2020-2021, these programs included: Futsal with Chicagoland Futsal, Theater with Lifeline Theater, cooking with iCook, and piano lessons offered by a private tutor.

Our 2020-2021 line up of after school enrichment programs continues to grow. It includes Cooking, Futsal, Circus Arts, Chess, piano, and visual art.
