Primary School Program Offerings

Early Morning Drop-Off

Early Morning Drop-Off is available every morning school is in session for our Kindergarten through Fourth Grade girls starting at 7:30am. Supervised open play either on our playground or Music Room is at no cost to families. Girls walk up to the classrooms at 8:00am.


Our Primary School provides extraordinary opportunities for academic, artistic and civic achievements through a rich and well-developed curriculum. With an emphasis on developing a love of learning through literary, math, science, technology and art our girls grow and thrive.

After School Club

After School Club is a popular place for girls in Kindergarten through Fourth Grade to relax after a busy day at school. After School Club begins at dismissal time and is available until 6:00pm. The program offers a nurturing environment, much like a second home. The teachers are consistent throughout the year, providing the children with a warm and trusted adult presence.

Activities change daily to include play on the playground, art, creative dramatics, and special projects. Girls with homework are allowed and encouraged to go to our Homework Room where they are assisted with the completion of their homework.

After School Club is an additional cost and families can sign up ahead of time or do a drop-in.


Expressions courses offer a wide array of choices for girls to pursue a special interest or learn a new skill and are available to Hathaway Brown girls typically in First through Fourth Grade. This after school enrichment program offers varied classes such as music, art, drama, robotics, science, dance and chess. Instructors are chosen for their professional qualifications and their ability to encourage self-confidence, boost skills, and create fun activities. Expressions classes are offered once a week after school until 4:30pm in eight-week or year-long sessions at an additional cost.


The Athletic Department offers a variety of developmental athletic clinics for Primary School age children throughout the school year which meet after school. Students have the opportunity to learn skills and work with Hathaway Brown coaches and Upper School student athletes in various sports including running, golf, field hockey, soccer, tennis, basketball, lacrosse, swimming and diving.

Athletic clinics are at an additional cost.

Vacation Programs

Many parents also wish to make arrangements for their children during spring and summer vacations. Hathaway Brown offers a full complement of programming during these vacation periods.
