Coverage Options

Monthly Aftercare

Whether you need coverage every day, or just one day per week, our program allows exibility. Fees are based on full month-long intervals, beginning on the first of every month. We do not prorate for those who register after the 1st of the month. However, you do have the option of using our Drop In program (see below for details). Please note that monthly pricing is determined according to the average number of school days per month during the school year. The number of days per week your child attends may be increased if necessary, but may not be decreased, until the end of the month.

Registration WILL AUTOMATICALLY renew each month UNLESS you notify us IN WRITING by emailing CarrollKids.Billing@gmail.com. This notification must be received by the last business day of the month. It is our policy that refunds will not be given if you fail to give us written notification.

Partial Afternoons

Each Partial Afternoon is a half afternoon of coverage: from pickup to 4:40pm (“EARLY Partial”), or 4:40 to 6:30pm (“LATE Partial”). Parents of children in Enrichment Classes especially appreciate the convenience of Late Partial because it offers coverage for the time between school dismissal and an Enrichment Class with a later start time. You can register for Partial Afternoons just as you do for full days; the same rules apply.

Drop In Aftercare

Families may enroll in Carroll Kids Aftercare on a drop in basis. You MUST pre-register to take advantage of our Drop In program. You can do this by creating an account here and registering for Aftercare (but do NOT select your days). Your account must be created at least 7 days in advance of your first Drop In. We highly recommend setting this up at the beginning of the school year.

Drop Ins are available to families if there is space in our Aftercare program. Requests need to be made by email to ps58as.carolyn@gmail.com or phone by calling 718-330-9322 x1001 at least 24 hours in advance. For Mondays, please notify us by Friday. Drop Ins may be scheduled in advance (in fact, this is preferred!). Once a Drop In reservation is confirmed, it may not be cancelled.

Please note: we no longer offer Early or Late Partial Drop In options. Your child may attend for any amount of time up until 6:30pm on a Drop In day.

10-Pack of Drop Ins

This option allows you to purchase 10 days of Drop In coverage and use them on an as-needed basis. The days:

  • do not have to be used consecutively
  • can be used within the family
  • and may be used at any time during the 2017-18 school year

Advance notice is appreciated! We ask for a minimum of 24-hour notice that you will be using a Drop In by emailing ps58as.carolyn@gmail.com. For a Monday Drop In, please notify us by the preceding Friday. 10-Packs must be purchased at least 7 days before the first Drop In.

Coverage During School Non-Attendance Days: “Carroll Kids Camp”

This school year includes 3 non-attendance days when the building is open but students do not attend. Non-attendance days include Tuesday, November 7; Thursday, June 7; and Monday, June 11. On these occasions, Carroll Kids will run all-day camps from 8:30am to 6:30pm. Students may register for the day (8:30am to 3pm) and/or extended day (3pm to 6:30pm). The cost of “Carroll Kids Camp” varies on the activities planned. (In the past we’ve visited Liberty Science Center, Prospect Park Zoo, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Greenwood Cemetery, gone bowling, and to the movies.) If the non-attendance day falls on a day of the week that your child is already enrolled in Carroll Kids, there is no extra charge for the extended day portion.

Coverage During Half-Days of School

Half-day coverage ($40/day) is for the period from 12:10pm until 3:10pm when Carroll Kids begins. On school half days, every parent interested in coverage from 12:10 to 3:10 MUST REGISTER! A charge of $40 will be applied, even if you are registered for Carroll Kids that day. If your child is already registered for Carroll Kids on the day of the 1/2 day, you will only be charged extra if you register for the extra coverage. If you are not registered for Carroll Kids on the 1/2 day, you can register for both the 12:10pm to 3:10pm and the 3:10pm to 6:10pm, but you must register for both. If your child is already enrolled in Aftercare on the day of week on which a half-day is scheduled, there is no extra charge for the 3:10pm to 6:30pm portion of the day. This year’s half-days fall on: Thursday, November 16 and Thursday, March 15.
