Dear Parents and Guardians in the Nursery and Kindergarten Classes:
Included in this message is information about an important program offered by our School. Understanding that many parents require additional childcare after the midday dismissal, the school offers an Afternoon Care Program from 12 noon until 3:00 pm each day.
- The Nursery Afternoon Care Program is led by Ms. Mina Koyama, a trained and experienced Waldorf teacher, as well as two or three assistants.
- The Kindergarten Afternoon Care Program is led by Mrs. Lucille Goldenberg, also a trained and experienced Waldorf teacher, as well as one or more assistants.
Working together, they create a nurturing and healthy atmosphere for your child in the afternoon. The strong daily rhythm of the Afternoon Care Program supports the young child and we recommend that parents who need the program enroll their child for a minimum of three days per week. To support the development of a healthy routine for everyone, please know that enrollment priority is given to families choosing three or more days.
Should you wish to enroll your child in the Afternoon Care Program, we encourage you to complete and return this Enrollment Form as quickly as possible. This program has grown in popularity over the past several years and space is limited. Should you wait until September to enroll your child, please know that we cannot guarantee available space, if necessary your child’s name may be placed on a wait list.
Please note that the Kindergarten Afternoon Care Program begins on Opening Day, Wednesday, September 11th. The Nursery Afternoon Care Program begins on Monday, September 16th.
More information regarding the Afternoon Programs is included in the Early Childhood Handbook. If you have additional questions please contact me at 516-742-3434, extension 301.
