Hello PS 58 Families!
Spring 2020 ENRICHMENT registration opens on Monday, March 2 at 8am. If you are on a waitlist from the previous term, you’ll receive an email during the last week of February with information on priority registration. Please visit our listings page for the full Spring course guide & a quick glance grid of all our classes by day & grade. The registration site is http://www.ps58brooklyn.org/afterschool/registration/. Classes begin on Monday, March 30 and end on Friday, June 18, a period of 9 to 11 classes, depending on the day of the week.
In addition to Spring term ENRICHMENT registration, families must also re-register for Spring term AFTERCARE. Even if your schedule remains the same, we ask that you re-enroll students for the appropriate days and times. AFTERCARE registration opens on Wednesday, March 5. Priority will be given to returning students.
Registration for ENRICHMENT and AFTERCARE will close on Friday, March 20 @ 11pm. Please do register for your children’s spring aftercare schedule by this day so we have time to prepare new rosters for our program.
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, aftercare programming and camps. 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.
Carroll Kids enrichment classes run in three sessions: Fall, Winter & Spring. We take a one-week break athe end of each session 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). All enrichment classes begin with a healthy snack in the cafeteria and then students transition to their various classroom spaces throughout the school. Most classes run for 90 minutes, ending at 4:40pm. Details can be found in the following class descriptions. Enrichment class students may also enroll in Carroll Kids “late partial” aftercare session if they need childcare coverage from 4:40pm until last pick-up at 6:30pm. Details on this concurrent program are available at http://www.ps58brooklyn.org/.
Be aware that many of our classes fill up in the first seconds after registration opens. However, we are offering more than 80 classes this spring 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. Payment plans are available for classes over $500. Financial aid is available to eligible families. More details can be found on the website.
