What is the School’s Out Program?
The School’s Out Program provides before and after care for children in grades K-6 who attend Schuylerville Central School District. We provide a safe environment that is casual in format and we maintain a student to adult ratio of 10:1. A variety of games and activities are offered, such as: board games, ride-on scooters, and a variety of blocks and manipulatives. We also have access to the computer lab, outdoor playgrounds, fields, and occasionally the gym. Our staff includes a NYS certified teacher as the Director, teacher aides, adults and high school students.
What are the hours and cost?
The Before School Program begins at 7 a.m., and children are dismissed at 9 a.m. for school. Breakfast is offered at 8:15 a.m. for School’s Out Program students. This comes right off of their lunch accounts. The cost for Before School is $75 per child per month. The After School Program starts when the child is dismissed at the end of the school day at 3 p.m. Children must be picked up by 6 p.m. The cost for After School is $100 per child per month. The cost for a child to be enrolled in both the Before School and After School programs is $175 per child per month.
How do I enroll my child to be in the School’s Out Program?
The Before School Program has spots for up to 100 children and the After School Program has spots for up to 130 children. Nolan Palermo is required to enroll new Kindergarten children first before opening it up to any other children. Once the new Kindergarteners are in (paperwork for new Kindergarten students was due in early May), then he is required to ask all families that are already in the program if they’d like to reapply. This is on a first come, first served basis. However, once applications are handed in by his ‘in program families,’ he is then able to open it up to new enrollments. Once the numbers for Before and After School are met, he cannot accept any new applications.
