Dear PS 15 Parents: 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 check back to this site later in the month for more information and to sign up. Also, 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 email@example.com
Aftercare will be available from 2:30-4:15pm for $18 per day or 2:30-6:00 pm for $22 per day. Parents can sign up for the entire week of care, or for a particular day or combination of days. More information for scholarships and sliding scales will be posted.
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 next season, Fall, will be from October 29 – December 21. Sign-up for those dates will be available Oct 1.
DAILY SCHEDULE: The afternoon will begin with a snack and open play/homework time. If the weather is good, children will also have a chance to play outside. After recess/snack, there will be extra-curricular activities led by FTF staff, PS 15 staff, or guest teaching artists, including movement, drama, visual arts, sports, cooking, language arts, and martial arts.
When enrichment clubs/classes start, they will take place from 3:00-4:00 p.m. and will be available for an additional fee. The clubs will be available on particular days, for example “Martial Arts Monday” and parents will purchase a season of the club in addition to purchasing a season of care. We’re hoping to partner with local organizations like Cora Dance, Cobble Hill Ballet, and Mission Martial Arts.
