 After School 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 a variety of developmentally appropriate skills and interests. These diverse after school activities enhance our play-based curriculum and further the mission of the school to create well-rounded learners. There’s something for everyone.

We offer two after school options:

  • 12:00-1:30 program for our morning students: the children have lunch from 12-12:30 with an IPS teacher who remains with them throughout the activity, from 12:30-1:30. Parents should pack a nut-free lunch to send with their child. 
  • 3-4 program for our all-day students. IPS provides a snack which the children enjoy with an IPS teacher prior to their activity. The same IPS teacher remains with the class to assist the after school instructor.

Please note:

  • Scheduling: Make sure to sign up for programs that fit with your child’s schedule (eg. if your child is in class until 3pm, do not sign up for a noon class). Click on the class for a more detailed description and schedule.
  • Spring 2020 after school programs begin the week of January 6th.
  • Registration (below): Your online purchase reserves your child’s spot in your chosen class. If we need additional information from you, we will email you.
