Space is available in our Robin's Nest aftercare program for families enrolled in our morning 3 & 5 Day Nurseries and Kindergarten programs. This restful program meets daily from 12:30-3:30 PM and supports families who need care in the afternoon.
The afternoon rhythm begins with lunch. The children will eat a nutritious meal they have brought from home and then they will transition into a period of rest. After rest there is time for free play and a healthy snack that is provided by the school. Before dismissal the children help with clean up and then they are picked up by their parents or caregivers at 3:30 PM.
We encourage parents to carry the rhythm of aftercare into their home lives by offering their children a time of rest after lunch each day. If you would like support in establishing a home rhythm that includes rest please contact our Aftercare teacher, Rie Seo at Rie.Seo@newamsterdamchildhood.org. She is happy to share her insights and suggestions.
To join the program please complete the Aftercare Registration Form and return it to the school with your tuition check. To help the children in coming into the rhythm of Aftercare we ask that parents enroll their child a minimum of two days per week.
Please note that all fees will be prorated based on your start date.
