Aftercare Program for 2016-17

Beginning September 2016, Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School is offering an aftercare program for children enrolled in kindergarten through grade six (ages 3.5 to 12 years).

The aftercare program will be a combination of outdoor play and a walk, a Waldorf inspired craft and a healthy snack.

Our aftercare program will be available Monday through Friday from 2:45 to 5:30 pm with pick-up times every thirty minutes after 3:30 pm. Pick-up locations may differ based on the time, schedules will be provided to all who register.

Courtney Maatouk is the Aftercare Director and will be planning and managing many details of the program. The homeroom for aftercare will be the first grade classroom at the west end of the hallway.

The following information will help families plan their aftercare needs in time for the first week of school.
Pre-paid registrations will be completed on a monthly basis with drop-ins and extended time as needed based on your schedule.

Registration Details:

  • Registrations will be processed monthly. Complete a registration form and provide requested information including an emergency contact name and phone number. Once the emergency information is on file, regular aftercare users need not include this information each time.
  • Registration forms will be available the second week of each month prior to the month required. (e.g. for September, the forms will be available beginning August 8th)
  • Registration will be due the Friday before the beginning of each month unless an alternate date is specified. (for September, registrations are due August 26th)
  • Payment by check or cash must accompany registration forms. These may be mailed or dropped off in the office.

Regular monthly registration for every school day during the month receives a 5% discount off the monthly total. Choose your regular pick-up time and submit the stated monthly total which is calculated for the days of school per month.
example: every school day in September with a pick-up time of 4:30 pm = $194
X    2:45 – 4:30 ($194)

A la carte registrations may be chosen for flexible aftercare use. Please use the price code on the registration form to help you arrive at the correct total for your monthly registrations. Place the pick-up cost in the box next to the pick-up time for each day desired and carry over the weekly total and monthly totals.

Drop-in Registrations must be made in the front office by 8:30 am of the day requiring service.
**Payments for drop-in aftercare must be made at the time of registration or at pick-up.


Enrichment Days

Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School has created a series of Enrichment Days during the school year to support working families when school is not in session. Throughout the course of the school year there are faculty in-service days, parent-teacher conference days and other non-attendance days scheduled into our school calendar.

Susana Ruder, Enrichment Days Program Director, will be providing the program and activities for the children.

The Enrichment Days are not only designed to help families with childcare needs, but also for the children to have a guided social (games, stories) and informal experiential educational (nature walks, nature-based crafts) experience. This curriculum is designed to enthusiastically engage all students in each age range.

Thirteen of these non-attendance days have been identified and programming will be offered for children five and up from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. Parents may register their child/ren for either the entire day or either half day (8:30-12:30 or 12:30-4:30). Children will need to bring peanut-free snacks for the morning and afternoon as well as a sack lunch.

Registration is required to ensure the enrichment day will be offered. You may register for the entire year or up to 24 hours before each day. Drop-ins will be allowed if there are available openings. A sibling discount of $5 per day is offered after the first child is registered*.
