Vacation Child Care is offered most days when school is not in session during the academic year. The Vacation Child Care program accommodates up to fifteen children in Preschool through sixth grade from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and is staffed by two teachers who plan a day of indoor and outdoor activities.

Cold Spring has no scheduled half days and even Faculty Meetings happen at night so not to impact the children's instructional time nor families' schedules.

"Cold Spring School is more than a school to me. The community here has always felt like a second family. I leave home every morning and go to my other home. It's like a shelter where we share our hopes and dreams."
