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

 

Before and After Care

Here at Bixby, we believe that auxiliary programs are an extension of the school day. More than just care, students in after care are included in programming which include stimulating conversations through social justice chats, coordinating themes during the school day, PlayWorks games, meditation, and activities to encourage personal and social growth in a fun and safe environment. Students are encouraged to have autonomy in their decision making and to grow into their individuality.

Before Care Hours: 7:15am-8:15am
After Care Hours: 3:15pm-5:45pm

Drop-In Rate: $15/hr to be charged in increments of 15 minutes; please e-mail Julie at auxiliary@bixbyschool.org if your child will be dropping in for the day
