Welcome Back Families! 

We’re looking forward to seeing you for AfterCare.  AfterCare begins September 13 for students in grades 1-5, and September 20 for students enrolled in grades preschool through kindergarten.

AfterCare is the D-E360° program provided for students in grades preschool through grade 5 M-F from the end of the school day to 6:15 PM. 

Students begin each day in AfterCare with snack options, planned and organized sports and activities, Homework Club and the use of our library facilities. We pride ourselves in offering a wide variety of unique and fun offerings. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for students to grow and express themselves. Our program is focused around giving students interactive recreational time, supervised space to interact and stay connected.  With activities like arts and crafts, yoga, games, and sports challenges, children may join us after school to reinforce learning or explore something new. 

How does my child get to class?

Children will be escorted to their designated area in Drapkin or Umpleby Hall for AfterCare check-in.

Pick Up

Parents pick up their children outside of Drapkin Hall or Umpleby. Programming for preschool through kindergarten will take place in Drapkin, and students in grades 1-5 will be in Umpleby.  Call the AfterCare Programs Director line at (201) 289-2283 when you arrive for pickup.  Students are signed out by their group leader and will be escorted to your car.  Students are not allowed to leave unless with a parent or an authorized caregiver.
