Vacation & Holiday Program

Overview

During Henniker Community School vacation weeks, White Birch Center for Extended Education offers full day care at Henniker Community School. This is also the case on Teacher Workshop days. On early release days, we offer programming from the time of release until 6:00 PM, which is our normal closing time for the after school program. The only exception to this are certain holidays where both the school and White Birch center are closed. The detailed calendar highlights all important vacation, teacher workshop, early dismissal, and early arrival dates for the coming school year.

Drop Off & Pick Up

Before School Program

Children are dropped off and checked in any time after 6:30 AM in the classroom located in the back of the school just as you enter the school drop off area. To get behind the school you turn off of Western Ave between the Grange and the Tucker free library. At 7:50 am, just prior to school beginning, White Birch Extended Education staff escort the children to the playground where other children are playing until the bell for school rings.

After School Program

At 2:45 PM when children are released from classes, White Birch after school children meet just outside the Henniker Community School main office. Younger children are escorted to the meeting point by their teachers and older children go right from class to the meeting point on their own. When all children are accounted for, White Birch Extended Care staff escort the children to the after school classroom for our programming which ends at 6:00 PM (children can be picked up at any time after 3:00 PM).
