Programs

Tiny Treasures, a local child care facility, has contracted with the Fairfield Schools to provide space for their Before and After School Program for Fairfield students at Stevenson School. This arrangement has allowed children in K-6 to be dropped off at Stevenson School in the morning rather than the Tiny Treasures facility. This has eliminated the need to bus the students from Tiny Treasures facility to school. Grades 4-6 are then bused to Churchill to start their day. At dismissal, students in K-2 report to the Tiny Treasures area, and children in grades 4-6 are bused to Stevenson. This arrangement has been appreciated by parents, students, and staff.
