We are YOUR afterschool program. Carroll Kids is run by the PTA of PS 58, and we try to serve the many needs of our families by providing high-quality enrichment classes and aftercare programming. We serve as many as three-quarters of the school population! Our program also provides recess counselors to help facilitate games and fun for all grades during the school day. This year we will also be providing additional support as students enter the school in the mornings.
Carroll Kids enrichment classes run in three sessions: Fall, Winter & Spring. Fall registration happens in August and classes begin the second week of school generally. Winter class registration will begin on Wednesday, December 1 and spring class registration will open on Monday, March 14. We take a one-week break between sessions to allow for make-up classes. If you need childcare coverage during this interval, just let us know! We can arrange for “drop ins” with our aftercare program.
Students enrolled in enrichment classes are dismissed directly from their classrooms to Carroll Kids (which is why it is critical that you update your students’ classroom information once it’s available). All enrichment classes begin with a healthy snack and then students transition to their various classroom spaces throughout the school. Most classes run for 90 minutes ending at 4:10 pm. More detail can be found in the following class descriptions. We do have the option for enrichment class students to also enroll in Carroll Kids “late partial” aftercare session following their class for families that need childcare coverage until last pick-up at 6:30pm. Details on this concurrent program are available on http://www.ps58brooklyn.org/; registration for aftercare will run separately and subsequent to enrichment registration.
As many of you know, some of our most popular classes fill up in the first minute after registration opens. However, we are offering more than 60 classes this fall so everyone can find a class that fits his/her interests and schedules. Class pricing is based on instructors’ fees and the number of times it’s offered in a session and then marked up to cover the costs of administration and affording a small grant to the PTA. Many of our classes are taught by PS 58 staff, and these classes are among our most affordable. Other classes are taught by outside vendors and can be more expensive but allow us to offer a wider variety of classes. Financial aid is available to eligible families.
