The Before-School Program and the After-School Stay and Play Program is designed to be a service for The Salisbury School families whose parents’ work schedules make childcare a major concern. There are different options available to suit individual needs. If you plan to enroll in any aspect of the program, please review the options, complete the appropriate form under DOWNLOADS, and return it before the end of the school year. Since we can only accommodate a specific number of students on any given day (as required by State law), first preference is to families who require five days. Slots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
