Registration has begun for reduced-rate extended day program

Feb. 4, 2016

Parents of students who attend any of the three Monticello Central School District elementary schools may begin registering their children for the Healthy Kids Extended Day program. Newly-registered students may begin to attend the program on Feb. 16, 2016.

The district recently received funding to offer this program at a reduced cost. The total cost to parents will be:
Morning Program Only: $57.50 per month
After School Only: $87.50 per month
Before and After School: $145.00 per month

Reduced-rate spaces are limited, and families who are in need of full program care in the morning and after school program will be given priority placement at the reduced rate. The first month’s payment is due at registration.

Parents may register their students by calling Jeanne Martin, at (845) 568 -6100 ext. 1002.

The program provides before and after school childcare to students in grades K-5 in all three Monticello elementary schools and offers recreation, arts and crafts and academic programs. The before-school program begins at 6:30 a.m. until the start of school, and the after-school program is available at the end of the school day until 6 p.m.

According to the program’s website, the Healthy Kids Extended Day Program is one of the largest, most experienced and highest quality providers of extended day care in New York with programs in dozens of elementary schools in Brooklyn, Dutchess, Orange and Westchester counties. The program’s directors and staff are highly-skilled, background-checked and credentialed. The New York State Office of Children and Family Services licenses and oversees the program.
