Half Day Programs

At least four times a year, New York City Public Schools are closed at 12:00pm for parent-teacher conferences or for Clerical Shortened Days.

Since not every family has the ability to take a half day at work or schedule private or family child care on these Half Days, our Afterschool Program runs Half Day Programs from 12:00pm until 6:00pm as a service for our Afterschool community of families.

For just $35, our Program provides six hours of child care, snack, and a fun “field-trip” style experience off school premises.

Each Half Day includes two trips that are age appropriate:

  • One trip is geared for grades K-1 and the other trip is geared for grades 2-5.  
  • Previous trips for K-1 have included the Central Park Zoo, The Art Farm in the City, and The Children’s Museum of Manhattan.  
  • Previous trips for grades 2-5 have included The Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum, Chelsea Piers, and G/PG rated movies.

Each group of children is accompanied by several Afterschool Staff members and we maintain a very low student to staff ratio to ensure a safe and smooth trip every time.
