After School


After School Enrichment Courses

After School enrichment at Berkeley Carroll is designed to provide children with enjoyable and educational experiences in the creative arts, the sciences, and athletics.

Courses are developed for a variety of age and interest levels and taught by Berkeley Carroll faculty members as well as other experienced professionals during three sessions: fall, winter, and spring.

Most courses meet once a week, for a period of 8-13 weeks. Times, exact dates of course meetings, and fees are indicated in the course descriptions below. 

Course Registration

Course registration for Spring 2022 is online ONLY through Veracross and will open Wednesday, March 2nd.  Families will need to log into their Veracross account to access the After School enrichment course registration.

Enrichment Courses are filled on a first-come, first served basis.  Popular courses fill up very quickly after registration begins, so please plan accordingly.  Registration is on going until Wednesday, March 11th.  Spring 2022 courses begin March 28th and finish June 3rd. 

Children, grades K-4 enrolled in an after school enrichment course can attend the playgroup at no additional cost until 6:00pm. They will be escorted from the course to the playgroup.

Due to COVID precautions, PK students cannot participate in both Playgroup and Enrichment on the same day.

Please consider, if your child participates in more than one course, the chance of being quarantined for exposure increases. 

If you are interested in a course that is already full, please contact Jessica Garcia at jgarcia@berkeleycarroll.org and you will be added to a waitlist.

Please note: Courses are subject to cancellation if enrollment is insufficient to support the course.

After School Playgroups

Overview

There are two After School playgroups, one for PreK and Kindergarten children and another for grades 1-4. Supervised by experienced group leaders and their assistants, the playgroups provide childcare on school days from dismissal to 6:00pm. Games, arts and crafts, outdoor play, homework supervision and special events are offered. 

Drop-In Fees

Drop-In fees for playgroups are $15/hour per child. Families of students grades K-4 can use this service on a regular or as-needed basis. Last minute requests to have your child attend playgroup should please be emailed to jgarcia@berkeleycarroll.org.

Children, grades K-4, enrolled in an after school enrichment course can attend the playgroup at no additional cost until 6:00pm. They will be escorted from the course to the playgroup.

Hours are calculated as follows (we do not calculate by the half hour):

Grades PK-K, 1st Hour 2:50pm-3:50pm, 2nd Hour 3:51pm-4:50pm, 3rd Hour 4:51pm-6pm

Grades 1-4, 1st Hour 3:10pm-4:10pm, 2nd Hour 4:11pm-5:11pm, 3rd Hour 5:11pm-6pm

Package Fees

Families of K-4 grade students (that are vaccinated) can purchase packages of playgroup hours during each After School term based on the number of hours they expect to use. Packages are only valid for the term in which they are purchased, and hours cannot be rolled over to the following term or school year.

Spring 2022 Package Fees

150 Hours - $1,500 

100 Hours - $1,200

50 Hours - $700

Due to the COVID vaccination context, we will not be offering "drop-in" playgroups or package fees as an option for PK students.  You must pre-register by March 18th for each day of the week you intend for your child/ren to attend. PK students cannot participate in both Playgroup and Enrichment on the same day.

Families of PK students will be charged for the first hour of each date in the session at the time of registration. Your total payment will cover the first hour of the entire term up until the end of the session. Additional hours will be billed separately. Pre-registration charges are as follows:

If you have any questions regarding our playgroups, please contact Jessica Garcia at jgarcia@berkeleycarroll.org.
