Before & After School Care

The Early Birds program operates from 7:30 to 8:00 am each day that school is in session. Students of all ages are eligible for this program. Supervision is provided by NPS faculty and staff and students participate in quiet age-appropriate activities.  Attendance at Early Birds requires advance registration prior to the beginning of each session.

After 3 Club is the extended-day program for all NPS students in Nursery to – Sixth Grade which operates from 3:15 until to 6:00 pm daily and 12:00 – 6:00 pm on Noon Dismissal Fridays. Students may enroll for an entire school year, a trimester, or specific day(s) of the week.  A team of dedicated staff members organizes daily program activities including arts and crafts, cooking, games, and outdoor time. Students also have free time to play with friends. A snack is served at 4:00 pm, and a supervised homework period is part of the program for students in Grades 2–6.

Typically Early Birds and After 3 Club offer a flexible, drop-in option for families who only need occasional supervision.  However, in the 2021-2022 school year, we are unable to accept drop-ins, and students must be registered in order to attend.
