Afterschool Programs at IPS

Our students don’t stop learning when the school day ends. In addition to in-house offerings, we collaborate with specialists from all over New York City to give our students extracurricular choices to fit every interest. Developmentally appropriate activities enhance our unique classroom curriculum. Programs designed specifically for early childhood keep students engaged. Diverse afterschool offerings further our mission to create well-rounded learners. There’s something for everyone.

At all our locations, we have added new options at noon to accommodate children who are dismissed before noon and at noon. For these programs, the children will have a lunch or snack and spend 30 minutes with IPS teachers before their hour-long after school activity. Parents should pack a nut-free lunch/snack to send with their child. Please note that the total time of these programs is 1.5 hours, so a noon program ends at 1:30. The exception is karate—all karate programs dismiss 15 minutes earlier than other programs in the same time slot.

Please note:

  • Scheduling: Make sure to sign up for programs that fit with your child’s schedule. E.g., if your child is in class until 3pm, do not sign up for a noon class.
  • Registration: Your online purchase reserves your child’s spot in your chosen class. If we need additional information from you, we will contact you via email.
  • Enrollment: There is a limit to the number of children who can be enrolled in each activity. Classes with insufficient enrollment will be canceled.
  • Changes: Children may not switch class offerings after July 30, 2016. IPS will not make any refunds after July 30, 2016.
  • Absences & Cancelations: If a child misses a class there can be no refund. There are times when a class may need to be rescheduled to a different room or date; IPS will make every effort to notify parents in advance.
