Before & After School Program
The sense of neighborhood created on the campus is one that makes the Catlin Gabel After School Program (ASP) an excellent choice for many families. With teachers and teaching assistants organizing and supervising art projects, cooking capers, sports events, outdoor fun, and organized games, students have plenty to do. These programs are designed primarily for Beginning and Lower School students.
After School Program 2020-21
This year’s After School Program is currently available only for preschool families whose children are on campus. It is open Monday-Friday until 6 p.m.
Options for Beginning & Lower School Students
Families can choose from a variety of plans that best fit their needs—from drop-in opportunities and to all-day programs when certain class days are not in session to after-care each school day.
Before School care is available between 7:15 and 8:15 a.m. for BLS students at no extra cost to families. This drop-in program requires no pre-arrangement for attendance.
After School Program
Our After School Program (ASP) is offered from 3 to 6 p.m. on days that the BLS is in session and includes an afternoon snack. Parents/guardians may arrange full-time care (at a reduced rate), part-time care, or use it on a drop-in basis. Due to the limited number of spaces available in the ASP, students must be registered for the annual rate or a drop-in spot to attend.
Families who would like to use the ASP on an as-needed basis can schedule attendance using the drop-in program. Registration for each month will open on the Friday before the 1st day of the month. Registration for each day will close at 1:00 p.m. If you need to cancel your child's spot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a confirmation of cancellation.
ASP provides care on days when BLS is not in session due to conferences, professional development, or teacher work days. In addition to the basic ASP, specific enrichment activities are offered for grades 1–5. Registration for these days opens on the parent portal school website two weeks prior to the day of the program. Space is limited.
