Kid’s Space

"Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything." - Muhammad Ali

Kid’s Space – Afterschool Program

We will be holding a new full-day program at the Riverdale Y where you can send your children to us while they are learning remotely! Group sizes will be limited, with students organized by pods within each grade. Highly-trained staff will assist students to make sure they stay on task with their school classes. An age-appropriate atmosphere will be maintained during school hours, with enrichment breaks according to each group’s school day schedule. Lunch, snacks, and enrichment will be provided by the Riverdale Y. Enrichment options may include sports, arts and crafts, baking, chess, Spanish, and more.

Options:

Full Coverage: $2,625/quarter: 7:30 AM-6:30 PM on remote learning days (2 or 3 days/week on the same A/B schedule as school) AND after school until 6:30 PM on the alternating days

Remote Days Full Day: $2000/quarter 7:30 AM-6:30 PM on remote learning days (2 or 3 days/week on the same A/B schedule as school)

Remote Days School Only: $1,375/quarter 7:30AM-3:00PM on remote learning days (2 or 3 days/week on the same A/B schedule as school)

After School Only: $750/quarter After school until 6:30PM Monday through Friday on in-school days only (the current Kid’s Space hours)

Transportation: Families will be expected to drop off and pick up their children at the Riverdale Y for all school day programs. We will be offering limited pickup from PS24 and PS81 ONLY for the after school program. PS81: All students will be walked up the hill to the Riverdale Y by our staff.  It is approximately a 5 minute walk and is the fastest and safest way that we are able to get students from PS81 to the Riverdale Y. PS24: We will offer bus service to our PS24 students only. They will be riding in shifts by grade to the Riverdale Y to ensure proper social distancing. In between trips, the bus will be sanitized before picking up the next group of children

Registration is currently closed for the first quarter. Please contact Sam Sullivan (ssullivan@riverdaley.org) for any questions you may have.
