The New Kid’s Space @ PS24
We are so thrilled to present a brand new model of after school for the 2017-2018 school year at P.S. 24. We are now the exclusive provider of after-school services on-site at P.S. 24. We have exciting new changes, which will include more childcare options, increased enrichment opportunities and enhanced academic support.
So What’s New?
The Riverdale Y Family & Youth team has forged an unprecedented partnership with P.S. 24 staff and the After School Parent Committee. As a result of this, Kid’s Space @ PS 24 will offer:
- Homework teacher for each grade level (NYC certified teachers).
- A study guide room for children who need additional academic support.
- A choice of 1 or 2 physical, creative, and academic enrichment options every day.
Classes will be taught by quality instructors from P.S. 24, The Riverdale YM-YWHA and our trusted partners.
Enhanced Enrichment Package
Our new enhanced enrichment package will provide coverage from dismissal to 4:15 PM. This time will include a healthy snack, homework help with a certified teacher and one enrichment class. Families may choose one through five days a week for this option.
Full Day Package
This package will include a healthy snack, homework help with a certified teacher and one enrichment class with additional extended coverage until 6:30 PM. Throughout the extended coverage, students will be engaged in various activities led by our caring after school counselors for less formal, supervised play and group activities. This is the perfect option for children who need a balanced blend of structured activity mixed with opportunities for free play with their peers.
For those interested, we will also offer an Enhanced Full Day Package which includes a second enrichment class each day.
Families may choose three through five days a week for these options.
Registration for the Full Day option opens Monday, May 22.
