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

Registration for After School is online ONLY through Veracross and registration is expected to open on Wednesday, September 1st at 12:00pm. Parents 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 make your plans accordingly. Registration is ongoing until courses are filled. Fall 2021 courses begin September 13th and finish on December 16th.

 

 

Please note that due to Covid protocols students cannot participate in both Enrichment and Playgroups on the same day - it is one or the other. 

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.

After School Playgroups

Overview

There are three After School Playgroups - one for PreK and Kindergarten, one for grades 1-2 and another for grades 3-4.  Supervised by experienced group leaders and their assistants, the Playgroups provide childcare on school days from dismissal to 6:00 pm. Games, arts and crafts, outdoor play, homework supervision, and special events are offered. Due to the COVID context, we will not be offering "drop-in" Playgroups as an option.  You must register by September 7th for each day of the week you intend for your child/ren to attend. 

Please note that due to Covid protocols students cannot participate in both Playgroups and Enrichment on the same day - it is one or the other. 

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

The fee for playgroups is $15 per hour.  You will be charged for the first hour for each date in the session at the time of registration.  Your total payment will cover the first hour for the entire period up until Winter Break.  Additional hours will be billed separately.

Should be your child be absent from school, your account will be credited accordingly.  Otherwise, the one hour fee is nonrefundable if your child/ren does not attend on a day for which they are registered.

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