Based on enrollment and how the schedule looks, we will make appropriate plans to keep the after care/xtra care create crew occupied.

If After Care/Xtra care is full, the system will not allow you to register, first come, first served.
After Care/Xtra Care Protocols
Calendar: We will follow the Irvington, NY Public Schools holiday calendar. After care kids can join up to 5 of our school holiday workshops/mini-camps at no additional charge, these programs run for 2-3 hours per day. We will provide up to 3 hours of coverage on half days of school, we do not offer coverage before school when there is a delayed open. We are closed for major holidays, and may not be open during breaks.
Payment for aftercare is as follows; upon acceptance, one full month of tuition is required, and monthly installments can be automatically deducted from your credit card on the 1st of each month. Payments by check must be received by the first of the month or after care may need to be paused until payment is made.
Snack: We will provide a healthy snack each day. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions and allergies.
Illness: Children who are sick may not attend after care. Children who become sick will be isolated and must be picked up promptly. If a child misses school due to illness, they may not attend after care. If you have a monthly space, there is no credit or make up.
Inclement weather: In the event of snow, or conditions deemed dangerous conditions by authorities, we will close as recommended. If school closes for bad weather, we will not be open as a back-up option unless conditions change. Our staff comes from all directions, and municipalities, so even if conditions improve locally, we may not be able to get everyone to the studio.
Late Pick-up: After care ends promptly at 6pm. We will need to add fees for late pick-ups. $10 for each 15 minutes of additional waiting time by our staff.
Emergencies/Fire/Lock-Downs: For the safety and wellbeing of everyone who visits the studio, we have periodic fire drills and practice lock down procedures. We have pre-arranged plans in the unlikely event these situations occur.
First Aid/Abuse Prevention: Our staff are trained in basic life saving procedures, we have medical supplies on hand and and child doses of Epi pen/Auvi-Q onsite. We do not have a defibrillator at this time. We also consider ourselves, and are considered, mandatory reporters as educators. Staff are required to train in abuse prevention in compliance with state standards, and in an effort to be part of the solution.
