About Us

ExtendED Notes is here for all of your after school program needs. We are advocates, enthusiasts, and evangelists for the movement to create more meaningful, enriching after school experiences for children.

For more than three decades, we have been living this mission with our vast collection of resources, tips, and supplies for after school leaders and teachers. Now, we offer those valuable strategies for FREE on our website, where we hope you read, enjoy, and share with others who want to start an after school program, improve on an existing one, or just find new ideas.

For more than 30 years, School Age NOTES was the resource for after school professionals in the United States and around the globe, supplying them with a wide range of proven and practical tools. To better capture the expansion and evolution of experiences being offered in, out of and beyond the school day, School Age NOTES changed its brand name to ExtendED Notes on January 1, 2013.

Building on the tradition of our former brand, School Age Notes, ExtendED Notes reaches across the boundaries of time and place to share tips, activities, ideas, news and products with educators and youth-development professionals. ExtendED Notes embodies a new era of learning in and out of school.
