Bixby Auxiliary Programs

Our founders, Pat and Bart, felt strongly that taking care of children meant to provide a haven where childhood can unfold freely and with the time needed to make meaningful connections and develop lasting friendships. We have built on their vision with our quality auxiliary programs, which allow children to spend additional time on campus with well-known and beloved teachers, friends, and peers. Bixby Auxiliary Programs are open to current Bixby students.

Our programs feature:

  • Guided activities in response to children’s interests
  • Free time to play alone, with others, and in small multi-age groups (divided into preschool and elementary program groupings)
  • Plenty of outside time, and time to move, play and enjoy some of our very own Bixby games
  • Trained professionals and educators who work with our children year-round
  • Drop-in options are available during the academic year

 

After Care

  • After-care runs from 3:30pm-5:45pm, please pick up your child(ren) no later than 5:45pm.
  • Snacks will be provided.
  • With regards to pick up, please buzz in at the Main Gate. One of the aftercare teachers will bring your child to the Main Gate to meet you.
  • As a reminder, most of the programming will be outside. Please have your child dress accordingly.

 

Drop In Care

The 2021-2022 Drop-In Aftercare policy is as follows:
 
Due to staffing limitations, there will be a limited number of drop-in spots available each day. In order to ensure that each program is adequately staffed, we are asking that all families interested in utilizing the drop-in program check in with either Hannah (K-5) or Alison (PS) first.
 
Q.)How much does drop-in aftercare cost?
 
K-5:  Flat rate of $35 per day per student
 
PS: $16.00/hour (billed in 15 min increments through FACTS incidental billing at the end of each month).
 
Q.)How do I sign my child up for drop-in aftercare?
 
For K-5 aftercare, you can sign up by either completing the following signupgenius link or by directly emailing Hannah, hannahw@bixbyschool.org.
 
For preschool, please check in with Alison at alisonw@bixbyschool.org.
 
In addition, after 2:00pm, for both Preschool and K-5 programs, please direct all aftercare questions to Hannah Wickenheiser, hannahw@bixbyschool.org.
