Independent Preschool-8th Grade

Auxiliary Programs

The Swain Experience doesn’t start and stop with the regular school day – the opportunities for learning and fun are available before school, after school, and even during the summer.


We are excited to share our offerings for Swain Explorations, our after-school program (formerly known as SASS). We've just added new options for spring - like dance, robotics and more - so be sure to check often, and to note the dates of classes. Register online - registration will stay open until classes are filled, so don't delay!


Before- and after-school care is available during the regular school year for our students in all grades. Families may schedule specific days and/or times for their children to use this service, or they can drop in by notifying the Main Office that the service is needed.

This program includes crafts, games, and play as well as educational opportunities. It gives children a quiet place to do their homework and class assignments under the supervision of a staff member. In addition to indoor activities, students enjoy several outdoor areas on our 20-acre campus. An after-school snack and beverage are also provided.

Before school care is offered at no charge from 7:30 - 8:00 a.m., and after school from 3:10 - 5:30 p.m., when hourly fees apply. For the 2017-2018 school year, the hourly fee for Extended Care is $10.50 per child. Discounts are available for multiple children in the same family.

We will offer child care for current Swain students only on select 'no school' daysClick here for details and to register.

Check the calendar for current information about Early Dismissals and school closures. For more information, contact Stacie Brown, Coordinator of Extended Care, at 610-217-5459 or
