After School Care
Vail Mountain School offers daily after school care for lower school children from 3:15 - 5:30 pm, including a snack. Licensed by the State of Colorado as childcare facility, the goal is to provide well-planned supervision at a reasonable charge to accommodate the demanding schedules of our families. Students play outside, complete homework, learn new games, and engage their imaginations through creative activities. Run by VMS teachers and staff, it is not uncommon for middle and Upper School friends to drop in and play. Childcare for faculty and staff is provided without charge.
