Thank you for your interest in PS 15’s aftercare program. The PTA is partnering with Hassan Blandford of FTF to provide daily aftercare to children from Pre-K to 5th Grade. Preliminary plans and logistical details are listed below, but please bear in mind that the program is rolling out this year and we’re still figuring out what will work best for our parent community. We welcome feedback from parents, caregivers, and teaching staff, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be four seasons of care: Preseason, Fall, Winter, and Spring.
Preseason will be from September 5 - October 26, with a September 6 start for Kindergartners and a September 7 start for Pre-K students, due to early dismissals for younger grades. (Pre-K and Kindergarten will be separated from older grades, with activities catered to their age group.)
The following rates and policies apply only to Preseason. Rates and policies may change in future seasons as we work out a model that is sustainable and affordable.
Aftercare will be available from 2:30-4:15pm for $18 per day or 2:30-6:00 pm for $22 per day. There is a 50% sibling discount. Parents can sign up for the entire week of care, or for a particular day or combination of days.
UPDATE: The fall, winter and spring season of care rates will be $20 per day and $24 per day. Enrichment clubs will be offered each day during these seasons at no additional cost. Enrichment clubs will include yoga, movement and dance, visual arts and technology.
There are a limited number of scholarships and financial aid available for Preseason. Awards are determined based on your income and childcare needs. You can download the forms via this link, or you can email PS15aftercare@gmail.com for a copy. There are also paper copies available at the school office, which will be open beginning Monday, August 27, during regular school hours.
When you have completed this application, please bring it to the PS15 Aftercare mailbox located in the main office, along with a copy of your last year’s Income Tax Return OR a letter from your employer with your current salary and work schedule. You can also email the forms and a PDF of your tax return or employer letter back to email@example.com.
The application form and accompanying documents are due by August 30.
Once your request has been reviewed you will receive an acceptance letter or email by September 4 outlining the details of your scholarship. Scholarships are awarded per family with payments assessed monthly.
If you know you will need childcare beginning Sept 5 and would like to register now without paying the first installment of tuition, you can do that at ps15aftercare.jumbula.com. Choose the schedule that you need and when you’re ready to pay, enter the coupon code scholarship and the fees will be waived. PS15 will then invoice you later according to your adjusted childcare payment.
